La Habana, Cuba

July 2019

To cross to this side of La Habana you need to take the ferry to Casa Blanca from the ferryport nearby the Havana Club museum.

This service runs 24 hours and (used to) cost 1CUP (not CUC) each way.

Most people head uphill to the Christ of Havana, where you also get a panoramic view of the old town slightly ruined by the overgrown greenery.

Instead, if you walk along the railtracks (formerly used by the Hershey Train to Camilo Cienfuegos) you will get to a decrepit wharf where the locals fish and some even dare to swim.
