Don Quijote schools are also offering various other afternoon/weekend activities e.g. city tours, visits to museums, excursions to nearby towns & villages as well as Tapas tours & movie nights.

Havana

Stepping into Havana, you will of course find the anticipated cool vintage cars, colourful colonial buildings, the Che Guevara posters, sounds of drums & guitars and locals dancing away at the Malecon. An atmosphere that can’t be put into words by any means, it has to be experienced personally and with all your senses.

As Cuba’s political and economical situation is rapidly taking a new direction you have to hurry to still get a piece of the old revolutionary Cuba as we’ve known it in the last 5 decades.

Things to do in Havana:

El Malecón: 8km long stretch of coastal avenue/boulevard/seawall & favourite meeting point for locals & tourists with its climax at sunset time. Magical!

Old Havana: City centre & core of Havana, neoclassic style buildings, narrow streets, lots of large ancient churches, monuments, fortresses… UNESCO World Heritage Site

Vedado: Heart of modern Havana, near the University, Plaza de la Revolución & Malecón, which boasts a young & vibrant atmosphere.

Playas del Este: Half an hour drive away from city centre you can relax at the peaceful sandy beaches with palm trees.

More must see places: Museo de la Revolución/ ‘Catedral de San Cristóbal’/ Hemingway House ‘Finca Vigia’/ ‘Plaza de Armas’…

This school may change courses to Private courses should there be only one student in a class of that specific level, in that case the lessons will be reduced by 25%.

Don Quijote’s – registration fee is €65.00.
