Sunday Overnight: Hotel Nacional

Our last full day in Havana begins with a guided tour of the whimsical and internationally known folk art kingdom known as Fusterlandia, a surrealist community art project started by the Cuban artist Jose Fuster. It's an inspired mix of colors, shapes, and mosaics you won't want to miss. After our visit, we'll channel a festive spirit at the Callejon de Hamel weekly Rumba. Watch the small street transform into an exuberant party full of music and dancing, and don't be shy if you want to join in. After lunch, the day takes a more serious turn with a guided tour of the splendid Museo de la Revolucion, where a local historian shares insights into the Cuban Revolution. Housed in the opulent palace of former president Fulgencio Batista, and decorated by Tiffany's of New York, the building itself helps tell the tale of Cuba's past. From the museum, we wind down our tour at Havana's famous San Jose Artisans' Market, where we have an opportunity to browse the stalls, meet local artists, and purchase one of a kind souvenirs. Dinner tonight is at one of Havana's finest paladars. Overnight: Havana, Hotel Nacional de Cuba
