Once the Finca Vigia, this ghost-white Spanish-colonial home was where Papa penned some of his greatest novels.

really not much to do here except listen to the guide. About the same information that you get in Key West about Hemmingway. Cuba keeps the property well maintained and clean.

Great history in the Hemingway's house tour. Learned things I was not aware of. The house is only about 30 minutes from Havana Cuba.

Out of the hustle-and-bustle of Old Havana, Hemingway's house is a peaceful oasis on a hill overlooking the city. It is a 20-30 minute drive from Old Town, but certainly worthwhile. Visitors can't enter the interior, but can see through big open doors and windows...More

Excellent question. I was on a tour bus that does wait. However, folks who had come by taxis or the old convertibles definitely waited for their patrons. I would suggest you negotiate that request prior to any place to... More
