Antigua is located in the
for Havana map), roughly in the northwest quadrant,
almost on the border with Nuevo Vedado and Playa and we live
the top half of the building, well away from the bustle of
Downtown , but not enough to keep you walking to the most
remote areas. A few 50m away 23rd Street, the main avenue of
the city and just over 10 min. walk to the Malecón.
Many of the best hotels and nightclubs are in Vedado such as the famous Hotel Nacional, Habana Libre and the Melia Cohiba with its Havana Café. Also famous are the Jazz café, La Zorra y el Cuervo (Jazz music), Turquino disco, club Yellow Submarine, Strawberry and Chocolate, the Factory of Art and the Café cantante and many others which may be found by yourself along your walking or some specialized guide.
In some of those places you can eat, but with excellent choices house is surrounded by "Paladares" as La Pachanga, El Farallon, El Cocinero and some private homes that offer rice gray and steak pork with vegetables for $ 2.00cuc or pizzas for $ 0.50cuc. In most of these places you can order food to bring home.
In most of these places and some others, the price range between $ 5.00 and $ 10.00cuc per person (if you're not heavy drinker).
places like the Decorative arts Museum, the Napoleonic, the
Dance Museum and some others can be found in Vedado as so as
the Colon Cemetery and the well famous Revolution Square are
very close from our house, also Viazul and Astro bus
terminals (to go other provinces)are not far away. The
University of Havana, although not very close is easily
to the very remotest parts of the Vedado you can walk for no longer than 45 min., But take an official taxi is often an easy and good choice when you have a program, prices from $ 3.00cuc to La Rampa (end of the road 23 ), $ 3.00cuc to $ 5.00cuc to hotels and nightclubs in Miramar and $ 5.00cuc to Old Havana; but when you have free schedule, you can take a shared taxi that takes you from our house to everywhere for only $ 0.50cuc going Playa, Miramar, Street 23, Centro Habana, reaching the Capitol (on a set route).
