Park · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
The beating heart of the city of Havana, Central Park bustles with sounds, sights, and smells. Perfect for a spot of people-watching, this small patch of greenery provides a series of stone benches, fountains, and sculptures to break up the hubbub of the busy streets, bus terminal, and buildings that surround. At the center of the park a sculpture of national hero and important figure in Latin American literature, José Martí, looks out serenely over the lively city center.

  • This is a lovely park in Old Havana. Here you will see lots of tourists, and some of the locals. There are plenty of vintage cars darting about. This is a nice place just to sit and speculate about what a beautiful place this city was 60 years ago.
