Những điều bạn sẽ làm

We´ll meet in Fresa y Chocolate, a night club on the street 23, it is easily found and all taxi drivers know where it is.While enjoying a coffee or a drink, in a nearby coffee shop,I will introduce you to the history of the cemetery from its foundation to the present day.

Then we'll visit the place,and you'll be amazed at its uniqueness.It's the biggest and most important cemetery in Cuba due to the amount of funerary artwork per square meter. The number of legends, histories, and amazing facts that we will find there is so vast that it's a mandatory visit when you come to Havana.

The starting point will be the main entrance of the graveyard. Moving along the main avenue, Christopher Columbus, we will visit the most important tombs and pantheons, which may be of architectural, artistic, or political importance, and in many cases all of them. We have in the cemetery a tomb of a woman, with a related ritual, concedes all kind of desires and it´s visited by people of the whole world that travel to the country exclusively to ask her for miracles.Then, after the desire is fulfilled return to Cuba with engraved gravestones or whatever they promise, to thank the given grace.

Other things to note

Don´t forget to bring your camera so you can take amazing and unique photos. Bring sunscreen or an umbrella if you have sensitive skin. You can also wear sunglasses and comfortable shoes.

Ruben clearly has invested extensive time in learning about the cemetery and its history as well as symbolism used in grave markers, all of which he shared generously. His tour was lively and informative, filled with anecdotes about various individuals interred in the cemetery.

If you have planned to visit this beautiful cemetery in Cuba, the best and only choice is to do it with this guy! Ruben is the best tour guide I ever met, he took me to coffee/a delicious fresh made juice, and pulled out a lots of maps, photos and flash cards and he is for real and seriously. Oh definitely! And he speaks fluent English! Ruben told me a lots of histories of the cemetery, interesting, touching and sad stories of the death, I wouldn’t have know any of it without taking his tour. He answered all my questions and giving me all the best spots to go in Havana. Don’t forget the sunscreen, hat, anything can protect you from the sun and of course your camera! Please don’t feel weird to visit the cemetery, it’s an open art museum of all the beautiful sculptures, it’s actually the most favorite place I have visit in Vedado. Highly recommend to go if you are in Havana. And don’t do it without Ruben!

Touring the cemetery with Ruben was an awesome experience. He had super in depth knowledge about the history of the cemetery and of Cuba, and is basically a symbology expert. You could spend all day here but the few hour tour was about perfect before we melted from the heat. Ruben was also just a super fun guy to spend the morning with. Highly recommend for a great Cuban experience!! Looking forward to seeing you in a few years when we return to thank Amelia for granting our wishes :)

This is a special tour that I definitely recommend. Ruben is very engaging and will tell you many interesting stories about the people buried in the cemetery. It is also a beautiful place. It was very hot, which was expected. Water, sunscreen and maybe an umbrella for shade are a good idea. You will enjoy this tour!

Ruben gave a fantastic tour of the Cemetery. He had a deep knowledge of the tombs and people in the cemetery. He did a fantastic job of outlining why the cemetery is located where it is in terms of physical and human geography. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide for this tour and think I would enjoy other of his tours as well.

What a cool and incredibly unique experience! I highly recommend this experience! If you are religious or not, artistic or not, this is the experience for you. I have never visited a cemetery on a tour like this. We got to see the history of Havana through the past centuries through the graves of important figures and just random rich people who built enormous monuments to themselves. With the knowledge of the our guide, we learned so much about Havana and the random stories of the people buried there. Very highly recommended!
