Step back in history and savor the sounds of Cuba with a classic mojito in hand. The first time we passed Bodeguita, it was literally mobbed with cruise ship passengers. Came back the next day, and it was ready for us.... we stepped in, ordered 2 mojitos and proceeded to dance with newfound friends from Spain, Mexico, and the US. Bought a CD from the band for 10 CUCs (about $10 US) and felt like we'd really sampled "La Habana".... walked back to our BnB taking the Malecon. A nice recipe for a fabulous afternoon in Havana.

We stopped by while in Havana to enjoy a Mojito at this busy place which was frequented by Ernest Hemingway back in the day. I could just imagine him roaring with laughter while enjoying one of his favorite drinks.

Dont bother with the food. The famous birthplace of the Mojito it’s a tourist trap for years now. And mojitos are not even that good. Mojito mix is prepared in bins in the back. Totally packed with tourists. But you cannot say that you were in Havana and not been at the Bodeguita del Medio. So just stop by, order a mojito, sign on the wall and take a few pics. Then just walk out and go somewhere else.

Walking through the streets of Old Havana, this place was highly recommended by the locals and tourists alike and so I had my dinner there..The shrimps were just awesome, although they could’ve been easy on the salt..Tried the Mojito (This place claims to be the birthplace) but wasn’t really impressed,being a food and beverage professional myself, it tasted like rum with soda and so I enjoyed The shrimps with a beer thereafter..
