Getting around town
11 March 2017 | Gran Teatro de la Havana
Our taxi drivers were fantastic. We got some names and recommendations from the casa owner, and they were our mainstay to get back and forth around town. Alex took us into town one day, and told us how to get tickets for the Buena Vista Social Club, took us there, went in with us for the reservation, picked us up the night of the show and brought us home after the show. Definitely one of the highlights, the three hour show featured many performers, who currently and previously played with Buena Vista Social Club, all Grammy winners, plus three free drinks ! Javier, drove us to the ballet one night, then two days later drove us to Cienefuegos, a 187 km trip ! The ballet was fantastic, the building is a magnificent baroque concert hall, and the Cuban National Ballet proved to be one the greatest Corps de Ballet in the world.
