El Floridita is an institution in Havana known for its daiquiri and its association with the towering literary figure Ernest Hemingway. Still today visitors mob the place just to cruise the yellowed photos of Papa Hemingway hung on the walls and take a photo with his statue at corner of the bar.
Cafe Havana (next to Museo del Chocolate) is a good spot, Dos Hermanos (the favorite place for Errol Flynn and Ernst Hemingway – Av. Del Puerto, La Habana, Cuba), the bar on the rooftop of Ambos Mundos and, of course, Bodequita del Medio, linked again to Hemingway adventures, but also to other writers as Pablo Neruda, Gabriel Garcia Marquez (Empedrado, La Habana, Cuba).
The Malecon is the famous boulevard and attracts locals and tourists. There is no other place that shows more the soul of Havana. This 7 km. long seaside promenade runs along historic parts of the city, the colonial center (Habana Vieja) and along the boring Russian apartments in Vedado. The boulevard is a summary of Havana `s history.
