One can grab a refreshing mojito at a reasonable price and listen to live music (groups of Cuban singers entertaining in the “son” style) or dance salsa with the locals.

Cuba has many beautiful cemeteries, but the one in Santiago is really worth a visit. Why? If you want to see the tombs of famous Cubans, like Compay Segundo or Emilio Bacardi, and the mausoleum of the greatest Cuban poet – Jose Martí, you should visit Cementerio Santa Ifigenia.
