Attractions near the Palco Hotel
Visit Cuba’s grandest old club
In a city where the architecture speaks so much for its social and political past, Club Habana should be on your must-see list. Located on Havana’s foreshore, this grand mansion was once the home of the Havana Yacht & Country Club and is a wonderful example of the classic colonial architecture seen across the city.
First opened in 1928, this members-only club has been the haunt of Havana’s elite since the beginning, with even Castro paying a rare visit in the 80s. Nowadays, while it’s a popular place with foreign dignitaries and the moneyed crowd in Cuba, guests of the Palco Hotel are also welcomed and offered a reduced entry fee. Make the most of the facilities, which include a swimming pool, tennis courts, bar and a health club.
Learn the secrets of Cuban cigars
Cuba is renowned as being the world’s best producer of cigars. Even non-smokers are lulled into trying these expertly rolled cylinders of tobacco, because their fame precedes them. Said to generate millions of dollars in tourism, Cuba has gone above and beyond to please visitors and now has a cigar museum, so you can see how they’re made, rolled and sold.
The Tobacco Museum in Old Havana features several exhibits, which tell the history of tobacco and relay the joy of smoking a true ‘rolley’. Partagas Factory is a great place to visit if you want to watch the whole process of cigar making and purchase the real deal.
