Shopping in Havana

In Old Havana, curio collectors and book lovers can bargain over pre-Revolutionary texts and ancient coins in the shady Plaza de Armas book market, or local art at the large craft market near the harbour. Cuban cigars are an iconic buy; always buy them at the official and helpful Casa del Habano tobacco stores, never from sellers on the streets.
