Before the Communist revolution and subsequent US blockade, Havana was one of the vacation hot-spots of the Caribbean, and since Cuba reopened to tourism in the 1990s, it has become a popular destination once again, albeit with many fewer U.S. citizens, due to an almost total ban on travel maintained by the U.S. federal government. However, there will be lots of tourists at any time of year, so expect huge crowds and long lines in places.

*'''Electric train to Matanzas''' One of the oldest electric trains in the world runs four times daily from Havana to [[Matanzas]]. It was built by Hershey and runs through their decrepit chocolate town. It's like riding a metro for 92km through villages and countryside. Leaves from Casablanca across bay; there are ferries running there in calm weather. Supposedly train is unreliable, but got me to my flight on time (just!).  Cost 3CUC.
