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.

Havana Cuba is an emerging third world City right now in 2019. They have only had internet and cell phones for 5 to 8 years. lots of Afro Caribbean art and bright bold graphic colors makes Havana a wonderful getaway for those of us stuck in a neutral snowbound North.
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.
