The Nacional is a landmark, one of Cuba’s inescapable spots. Its old fashion feel, its authenticity and its history remind us of last century’s palaces. Its gardens offer a splendid view on the ocean. In the basement, the Tienda del Tabaco boasts a great selection. It’s easy to find. Torcedores Milagros and Lazaro will wait for you on top of the stairs and show you the way. And the manager Yamilé Claro will give you precious advice.

CASA DEL HABANO 5TA Y 16

For the great choice

Type: Casa del Habano

Address: Ave. 5ta N° 1407 esq. 16, Miramar

Ph. : +5372 14 47 37

A big store. The smoke room and the bar occupy more space than cigars. Habanos are found in a big humidor set against the shop walls. Every brand is represented. Marleny Pulido and Carlos Robaina will welcome and advise you.

You should take the time to observe Maria the torcedora. Very experienced, she masterly rolls the difficult laguito n°1 module. A very sought after spot opened well into the night.

HOTEL TRYP HABANA LIBRE

For the great choice

Type: Casa del Habano

Address: Calle 23 entre L y M, Vedado

Ph. : +5378 34 61 11

The Habana Libre is considered the beating heart of the capital. Day and night, in front of the movie theaters or the famous Coppelia ice cream shop, vintage American cars drive by. Today, the old Havana Hilton boasts the largest cigar shop in the city, located inside the bar and tasting lounges. You will find a great choice of Habanos there.

All the limited series of the moment are available, as well as older ones, all sold by the piece. Its is thus a place where one goes to enjoy rare habanos, helped by the resident experts who will help you make your selection. A Locker Room (in the form of a closed window display) is available and will allow you to conserve your cigars in ideal conditions and to enjoy them when you return to Havana. A very nice break contrasting with the frenzy in the streets.
