Havana, Cuba for Dancing in the Streets

Might seem crazy to us, but dancing down at the Callejon de Hemel is just a normal day in the life of a Cuban. Spontaneous live music is the norm and the pounding Afro-Cuban rumba is a hypnotic draw for passing tourists. Get sucked in to the raw Cuban culture and crack out those night club moves – you’ll soon get knocked down and shown how to do it properly by a friendly Cuban. Callejon de Hemel is where many of Cuba’s famous musicians cut their teeth in the 40s and 50s. The area is also a great photo opportunity with bold African murals adorning the walls and artists’ studios popping up. The peak time to be here is Sundays at noon. Make sure you warm your hips up beforehand.
