5 of the best places to meet locals in Havana

1) Malecón

A 9-km stretch of pure Cuban soul. You have to have walked on the Malecón at least once and spent some time there to understand it. Lots of talking, drinking, kissing, having a good time close to the sea, where you unwind and escape from the warmth of the day. This is Havana.
