Always start your Sunday with brunch. 


Brunch at Al Carbon: Al Carbon was created by the owners of the very popular Cuban restaurant Ivan Y Justo, to the delight of the local Havana dining scene.  This pork-enthusiastic restaurant named “the coal” in English offers a modern twist on tradition Cuba fare. Make yourself comfortable at the bed table, where your booth seats are made of a real headboard and footboard, and try specials such as suckling pig tacos and charcoal-grilled piglet - about $10-$15 / plate, and the “Cuatro Leches” for dessert. The wine here is mostly from Spain, but they have curated a good selection.



Tour Havana in Classic Cars: For $25 per person per hour, cruise the Malecon and the Revolution Plaza by in style. Get picked up from the restaurant, and bring some champagne and cigars so that you can relax while you tour the city.


Make sure you leave yourself time to cruise the Malecon - a quintessential Cuban scene (at least from foreign eyes).



Experience the grandiose entrance to the Hotel Nacional, and go inside for a minute to get a glimpse of the place where the Havana Conference - a famous meeting between American and other mobsters, memorialized in The Godfather Part II, took place.   



Drinks at Efe: Sip daiquiris over live jazz and salsa music at Efe before your last meal in Cuba. Or if you’re here on a weekend you’ll have a chance to see Chimafunk, the hippest band in Havana.



Dinner at El del Frente: Make your way through the street jazz bands and beautiful scenery of Old Havana, over to this rooftop restaurant for some more live jazz. Find comfort in their outstanding ceviche and tuna tataki while the sun sets on your weekend wedding in Havana.

See a Buena Vista Social Club Concert: While almost all original members have either died or retired, the show still goes on, and is a pleasant experience, unique to Cuba. If you don't know who Buena Vista is, do yourself a favor and watch the documentary now.
