Hemingway Tour

Half day Tour, transportation in a 1950 vintage car. Lunch and private guide included.

This tour follows the footsteps of one of the world’s greatest writers, who lived in Cuba for 20 years. We will take you in a vintage American car from Finca Vigía to Cojímar, Hotel Ambos Mundos, Bodeguita del Medio, and the famous Floridita.

You will visit the Hemingway´s former residence, “Finca Vigía”, where he wrote a part of his novels, now a museum where you can find his library, hunting trophies, his bar, personal belongings, and his famous boat “El Pilar”, that he used to fish, sailing from Cojímar.

Precisely Cojímar is the next stop, a fishermen’s village whose landscape and people inspired Hemingway to write “The Old Man and the Sea”, for which he received the Pulitzer Prize. A walking tour takes you to Hemingway’s statue, (paid by local fishermen and made from old anchors, props, and tools), and Las Terrazas restaurant, the preferred Cojimar hangout of the author including the “Gregorio” drink.

From here, return to Old Havana, to see room 511 in Ambos Mundos Hotel, where Hemingway used to stay in the 1930s. Like Hemingway himself used to say: “My Daiquirí in “El Floridita” and my Mojito in “La Bodeguita”, referring to the last two stops, the famous bars “La Bodeguita del Medio” y “El Floridita” where you can taste his beloved cocktails.
