Restaurant for your lastevenings couldbe "La Guarida" Its a Paladares (privately owed restaurant) a lively bustling eatery offering a refreshingly good menu not normally found in Cuba.Its location is on the second floor of a run down house in central Havana, and was the film set for the film "Strawberries and Chocolate". A must to visit during their stay in Havana, its a very popular restaurant so they must book up before hand, why not reserve a table when you arrive into Havana.
The restaurant "El Floridita" on Obispo street, is another very good place to visit (the same street as the Hotel Florida - As you leave the Florida turn right out of the front door walk 4/5 blocks and its on the corner on the left hand side.) Favorite place of Ernest Hemingway's, where the Daiquiri was invented, indeed his stool still stands in the corner where he always used to sit! Excellent sea food and does a specialty of Lobster Thermador for around $50.00 (enough for two)
The tour cost is available on request. It includes the Iberia international flights, the Varadero transfers and Airport transfer as mentioned above, the accommodation on an all-inclusive bases except Florida which is bed and breakfast and the visa.
