2 sleeps to go.....
❤️Malecon waterfront
My favourite place to have a drink in Havana is not a bar but a place and it's the Malecon waterfront. By day it's pretty peaceful with people slowly strolling down it and fishermen sitting on the wall fishing. By night and especially at the weekend it becomes a very different and vibrant place. The Malecon seawall stretches across 5 miles and at the weekend from 7pm onwards it slowly starts to fill with people and as the night goes on the wall is full of people chatting, having drinks, laughing, dancing and there are always bands walking up and down the Malecon playing music. The atmosphere is electric!!! Grab a bottle rum, a bag of ice, a few cans of Tu Kola and some plastic cups and head down to watch the sunset and sunrise 💛#myhavana #malecon #waterfront #seawall #havanaclub #ice #sunset #sunrise #goodtimes #goodfriends #electric #atmosphere #takemeback #2sleeps #lifestyle #simplelife #nightime #livemusic #party #havanacity #favouriteplace #homsweethome #mycity #myhome #memories #prukbeat #pruklife

❤️ Best beaches in Cuba 🌴
Been trying to hold off from just talking about beaches but seeing as there are only 3 sleeps to go the here we go. For me the best beaches in the world are in the cayos in Cuba. They are mind-blowingly stunning, quiet with soft white sand. The sea is calm, crystal clear, warm and there is always a little breeze to keep you cool. Here are my favourite beaches in Cuba..
🌴Playa Ancon, Trinidad
🌴 Playa Pilar, Cayo Guillermo
🌴 Playa Paradiso, Cayo Largo
🌴Playa Perla Blanca, Cayo Santa Maria
🌴 Cayo Levisa, Pinar del Rio
🌴Varadero
So grab a frozen Daiquiri, or 2, a good book and just chill!!!! #myhavana #memories #cuba #escape #beachescape #paradise #blueskies #blueseas #warm #instatravel #cubanbeaches #daiquiri #havanaclub #takemeback #takemethere #relax #chillout #nowherelikeit #rum #whitesand

❤️Clandestina
Clandestina is Cuba's first design store for both locals and tourists. It was founded by a collective of young artists and entrepreneurs - creative tailors, artists, designers, filmmakers, writers and even their neighbours in Villegas Street. They design t-shirts, bags, prints and other bits and pieces. These guys are a great example of the talent and ambition of modern Havana. They have a collection they call VINTRASHE which is made of up-cycle second hand clothes which they bringing back to life with new modern designs printed on them. Many of these second hand pieces are garments that tourists have left behind or donated.Clandestina's mantra is "form follows function” as 80% of Clandestina’s t- shirts, home goods, prints and other design-driven items are made from recycled materials out of necessity.
I love everything about this place and although you don't think to go to Cuba to go clothes shopping this place is definitely worth checking out!!!

❤️Fruit & Veg markets
Now it might seem strange for me to put this into my hidden gems in Havana but if like me you buy your fruit and veg from the supermarket or when you can from an organic shop then you will be shocked when you taste fruit and veg in Cuba. The flavours are intense, vibrant and so different! Let's take an avocado for instance in Cuba it is at least 3 times bigger than it is in the U.K., the flesh is a bright yellow, the texture is so creamy and the flavour is rich and sweet. It's so good that you start craving it as an accompaniment to every meal. I remember as a child when I moved to the UK but would visit my dad in Cuba he would always put an un-ripe avocado in my suitcase and when I got home I would wait for what felt like weeks for it to ripen before I could eat it. A little piece from home, naughty I know.
The market on 17 & B in Vedado is my favourite, it is busy and someone is constantly trying to sell you something BUT it's great walking round tasting everything and smells all around you are so vibrant.
I've been told a few times by past competitors that have attended the Havana Club Cocktail Grand Prix that when they go home and try to replicate their cocktails, they never quite taste as good as they did in Havana!! 🍍🍉🥑🍌🍅🥒 #myhavana #havanacity #vedado #cuba #freshfruit #freshveg #organic #asitshouldbe #intense #flavours #rich #bright #vivrant #aromas #nothinglikeit #takemeback #tasteforthefirsttime #havanaclub #hccgp #competition #newcocktails #futureclassic #cubanrum #cubancocktails #markets #prukbeat #pruklife #hiddengem #healthy #cleaneating

❤️ Callejon de Hamel
Walking into this slim alley in the middle of Centro Havana is breath taking. Over the years this street has become a shrine created by Salvador Gonzales. The buildings are lined with brightly-colored paintings, murals, sculptures and objects, which depict rituals and deities called Orishas from an Afro-Cuban religion called Santeria (Way of Saints)
Every Sunday from noon there is a Rhumba festival, the interlocking drum patterns and chants are hypnotic and if you are wondering what cocktail you are being welcomed with it's called a Negron- Havana Club 3, fresh lime, light Cuban honey and sweet Thai basil. I'm addicted to this place and the music so have to pay a visit every time I go to Havana.

❤️ Madrigal bar
This quirky little bar sits in the heart of an area in Havana called Vedado. It's full of character, every wall is covered with new things to study. From modern art, vintage film set pieces, interesting furniture and vintage lighting. The food menu is great, a selection of tapas with flavours that you wouldn't expect from a Cuban bar.The drinks list is a collection of great classics, simple but for me the best drinks in Havana. At night they play live jazz and the atmosphere is very chilled and sophisticated. Not a bar for a crazy party but definitely somewhere to sit, sip on a El Presidente and soak in the atmosphere #myhavana #localbar #havanacity #Vedado #cuba #sophistication #hiddengem #livemusic #jazz #happyplace #madrigalbar #lostinthemoment #goodfriends #lifestyle #undiscoveredluxury #undiscovered #cubanluxury #time #conversation #getaway #takemeback #7sleeps

❤️ Vista Mar
Lazy Sundays at Vista Mar are perfect! Grab a Ron Collins or frozen Daiquiri and sit by the pool listening to music. I always get lost in a world of my own watching the waves crash into the infinity pool. Then head upstairs for some food, it's simple but perfected Cuban cuisine. If you have never had Ropa Vieja and black beans then this should be your first stop.
I always go here on my last day before flying home, it's 100% one of my happy places 💛💛💛💛💛 #myhavana #happyplace #vistamar #havana #havanaclub #memories #cuba #lazysunday #sundayfunday #sunshine #rum #sea #waves #takemeback #tranquility #poolside #pool #prukbeat #lifestyle #london #ldn #

❤️ Las Terrazas
Jump in a taxi and head up into the mountains if you want a little break from the heat and the noise of Havana. Such a beautiful journey and although it only takes an hour to get there it feels a million miles away. I recommend heading up at around 4pm to get there in time to order a slow cooked hog roast and watch the sun set over dinner and a few rums. You can stay in one of the tree houses which is pretty basic but waking up in La Terrazas is so refreshing and peaceful. There is lots to then do the next day from swimming in natural springs, horse riding, hiking and even take the zip wire from one side to the other!!! This place reminds me of being a kid, It's where my dad taught me to play dominoes. #myhavana #memories #lasterrazas #longweekend #peacefulretreat #havana #cuba #havanaclub #elrondecuba #dominoes #mountains #sunset #sunrise #getaway #lifestyle #refreshed #takemeback #happyplace #highlyrecommend
