About  Habana Riviera By Iberostar

Perhaps no hotel in Havana retains the swing and flavor of the 1950s as well as the Hotel Habana Riviera. Ginger Rogers inaugurated the hotel in December ’57, playing the legendary Copa Room of this seafront hotel built by mobster Meyer Lansky. Two scant years later he left Cuba in a rush, dumping his dreams of lucrative casino operations into the nearby ocean.

The Riviera’s mafia and gambling vestiges were quickly scrapped, but the lobby still reflects elements typical of the era. Including royal blue chaises paired with red club chairs and a beautiful marble floor. Prominent Cuban sculptors were commissioned back in the day and their timeless marble and bronze statues still decorate the lobby.

The lobby bar, poolside cafeteria, and the elegant L’Aiglon restaurant still exude a genuine 50's atmosphere, when cocktail dresses and tuxedos were de rigueur. Back then, this was the place in Havana to wine and dine people you wanted to impress and was one of the city’s most popular honeymoon hotels.

Flash forward to today and the lobby’s Salon Internacional is abuzz with conversation, while a young Cuban practices a few sassy salsa moves nearby.

The first project for the construction of this magnificent seawall dates back to the beginning of the 19th Century. Along it is a series of lookout points, esplanades and parks with geometrical layouts. It is one of the most popular places among the people of Havana.

Avenida de los Presidentes, Vedado, La Habana

Avenida de los Presidentes

The Avenida de los Presidentes de la Habana Avenue is located in the quarter of Vedado, Havana, surrounded by statues of important Latin American presidents, in the way of Las Ramblas of Barcelona. Among these statues are those of Salvador Allende, Simón Bolívar, and Benito Juárez. This wonderful avenue is known by Cubans as Calle G. To the north of Calle G is the Monument to Calixto García, a sculpture in honor of the brave Cuban general who US military leaders prevented from attending the Spanish surrender in 1898, in Santiago de Cuba. The statue represents the general riding a horse, and is surrounded by 24 bronze sheets telling the story of Calixto’s fight for the Independence of Cuba. At the south is the great monument to José Miguel Gómez, the second president of Cuba. Another one was dedicated to Tomás Estrada Palma, the first president of Cuba, who was considered a puppet of the US, however the only trace left of this statue is a couple of shoes on a pedestal. This place is quite lively during the evenings, when youngsters visit it looking to enjoy themselves with its guitars and drums. This atmosphere is especially present on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
