CRUISING IN PRE-1959 CLASSIC AMERICAN CAR

Hop inside one of Cuba’s iconic vintage cars from 1950s America and cruise along the Malecón in style.

When the US placed an embargo on Cuba in 1960, the island’s pipeline of American cars was abruptly cut off. Now, you’ll find 60,000 vintage cars from the 1950s, 40s – and even the 30s. Meticulously maintained for decades, the streets of Havana feel like one, big, classic car show – but not without some surprises under the hood, as Cubans used whatever they could find to keep their cars running.

You’ll have the opportunity to ride one of these, “Yank Tanks” down the Malecón, Havana’s famous seaside boulevard, and through the neighborhoods of Centro, Vedado, and Havana Vieja.
