Classic convertibles in Havana
Your Cuba adventure starts here
Cruise through Havana in classic convertible cars
WHAT IT'S ABOUT
A classic car tour through Havana is perhaps the most fitting way to experience Cuba and its capital. Prior to the 1950s Revolution, this Caribbean island was a playground for the rich and famous. A hedonistic haven for gambling and partying, it had the highest number of cars per capita anywhere in the world. Fast forward 70 years, and many of these classic cars are still in use.
Since the US trade embargo, access to spare parts or modern replacements has been nigh on impossible, so drivers have found ingenious ways to keep these prized heirlooms running. Today, Cuba’s vintage cars are one of the country’s most recognisable icons, and cruising through Havana in a fleet of classic convertibles is an essential Cuban experience, especially with a group of solo travellers.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
On this two-hour classic car tour of Havana, you’ll see the city sights in style. Starting at your accommodation, a fleet of vintage vehicles will arrive to pick you up. Climbing aboard the pristine open-top automobiles – which might include Chevrolets, Cadillacs and Chryslers – you’ll be transported back to the 1950s.
Feel the wind in your hair as you cruise the seafront Malecón esplanade. Marvel at the age-old buildings that line affluent Fifth Avenue. Stop off for a photoshoot at Revolution Square. Your vintage car tour of Havana ends in the characterful old town where you’ll enjoy cocktails and a farewell dinner with your solo travel group.
WHAT OUR COMMUNITY SAYS
“Driving through the colourful streets of Havana in a classic car is like taking a step back in time”, says Ellie Barnfather, who travelled to Cuba with Flash Pack. “The vibrant vintage vehicles add so much character to the already lively atmosphere of the city.”
“This was the final activity of our adventure, so I’d already seen Havana,” she continues. “At least, I thought I had. Cruising past all the top sites in a classic convertible as the sun slowly set over the city added a whole new dimension. It’s an unforgettable experience that truly captures the essence of Havana’s charm and history. It’s a real must do while visiting Cuba.”
