La Habana Vieja, Havana (Cuba) – Old Havana (extended version)

La Habana Vieja is the proper name for the central neighborhood Old Havana in Havana, Cuba. If you visit Havana for the first time, this is where need to go. If you’ve visited before, you probably still want to return – even if only to sip a cold beer in the shade and watch the hustle and bustle of the streets. If you live in Havana, you may actually prefer other neighborhoods with less tourists.

This video is an extended version (full of before unseen and alternative footage) of my 1-minute video La Habana Vieja, Old Havana (Havana, Cuba) – In Another Minute (314). Because this is just a complimentary post, for more information and links, please check out that original post. Everything was filmed in April 2016.
