It is a great place to go listen to some live salsa and drink a mojito but not the best option to dance, it's a bit too small. We still had fun tho, but didn't stay for too long

I waited anxiously to go to Café Havana. We went earlier to see if it was open. The staff was cleaning and advised they would open at 7:00pm. We arrived at 7:15 pm to be blocked by 3 guys saying the charge was $25,000 pesos...More

This place charges American price. At the door, you will have to pay 25,000cop per person to get in. A mojito is about 30,000cop. Don’t get me wrong! The live salsa music gets 5 star, but the rest is not very impressive for the price....More

This pub is sort of a classic in Cartagena to visit if you want to experience a Cuban-style pub. There is a Cuban band that plays Salsas trying to create an atmosphere reminiscent of a typical Cuban pub... The place is typically very crowded, where...More

The world Famous Cafe Havana was quite the experience. Once you arrive, you are greeted by the Body Guards holding the door shut. The admission is 25,000 a person paid immediately on entry, like a low class strip club. The place was full of older...More

It's preferred to have a reservation or it is better to go at 7:30-8:00 pm before the site gets crowded and it's OK for two ladies going along. Have a rum from Colombia caribbean coast and enjoy the night!
