Mit fogunk csinálni?

Pick up at your casa/hotel is included in the price and from there we go directly to the once beloved playground for the rich and famous, Los Jardines de la Tropical. A forgotten treasure not normally open to tourists where the international jet set mixed with Havana's elite. The extensive tropical gardens with enormous trees and unique architecture was the perfect fairytale setting for the elegant crowd. The construction of the gazebos, pavilions and whimsical buildings took years to complete and was an architectural triumph. Visitors included the American mafia, the most famous actors and musicians of the time and many others. As we walk in the shade of the trees we will introduce you to the history and bring to life what Havana was like during this time. We will also make time to visit the surrounding neighborhood, an area completely free from tourism. As Ricky is from the area, he knows everybody and you will also have a chance to interact with the locals. We will be invited into a private home for a good strong Cuba Libre and a chat about Cuba today before our cars come to take us back
Other things to note
This is no strenous walk. The grounds were we are walking are quite flat, but there are some stairs in some places, and can be slippery areas if there has been recent rain.

Hol leszünk?

Jardines de la Tropical - an extensive pleasure garden built around 1912 at the outskirts of Havana by the wealthy Herrera family. It quickly became a hot spot for high society, many parties and the most popular orchestras of the time.
Puentes Grande - an ordinary Cuban neighborhood, devoid of tourism, where kids play in the street and people go about their dayily lives.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Nini as she was back in Europe tending to a personal matter, but Ricky is an awesome guy. He grew up near the park and knows it so well. The park itself is beautiful, although while we were there, they were in the midst of rebuilding the entire place, so it was a complete construction zone. Nino's replacement, Celsa is an amazing woman as well. It was obvious that the park was not her first love and her information on the place was limited, but she went above and beyond to treat my friends and I like family! I have never met somebody so outgoing and approachable! This experience is amazing if you are trying to see a different, more "authentic" side of Havana outside of the hustle and bustle of downtown!

Ricky grew up in this neighborhood, playing in the ruins that are currently being restored. Nini did not accompany but Celas(?) godmother of Ricky did and she was charming. I loved seeing this off the beaten track place, in fact many other Cubans did not know of Jardin Tropicals that was built as a playground for rich and famous at the last turn of the century. We went to a friends house after for a drink and more conversation and my sister even got a hair trim as the host was a barber.

We were able to learn the history of this special place while experiencing the renovations to bring it back to life. I would love to come back and see it completed and in use as designed! The old photos along with the narrative in this exotic setting truly brought it to life for me. Also fun was meeting Ricky’s friend and his front porch barber shop!

This is a must see experience when you visit Cuba. Cesla and Ricky shared amazing insight and history about the park's rich and famous past as well as the park's new renovation and future . It is a beautiful place to visit. I really enjoyed the experience with Cesla and Ricky, and I look forward to taking the tour again on my next trip to Cuba after the park has been restored. I highly recommend this tour.

Ricky apparently didn’t speak English but his translator and tour guide Selsa (?) was great and really funny. The gardens and their history are really interesting. The gardens are undergoing a restoration. We may have to go back to Cuba to see them as they were in their heyday

This was a very unique experience however there were 12 people crammed into one Cadillac which made for a very u comfortable drive to the gardens and back into Havana. The hosts were friendly enough but I didn’t really get any sense of connection with them. Also, one of the hosts and several guests kept on walking ahead and getting in the way of taking photos which was the main reason I wanted to do this experience - to get unique pics. Not a terrible experience but I have done better,
