Iberostar Cuba releases the TipsIberostar video series shot from an iconic corner of Havana - Parque Central near Prado y Neptuno. Read on and find out more about what's going on in this historic part of a very beautiful city!
Iberostar Cuba, presenting Havana
Iberostar Cuba has released a series of short videos under the hashtag TipsIberostar in order to let tourists know more about the historic and beautiful city they're visiting, as well as informing the viewers how Iberostar hotels are investing in the specific parts of the city in which they build their luxury resorts.
The first video is about Parque Central, right in the middle of Havana, near the famous Paseo del Prado avenue.
Inside the Iberostar hotel at this location, the presenters show us inside the stylish hotel, from the rooftop swimming pools with 360-degree panoramic views of Havana, through the elegant and spacious recently refurbished bedrooms, complete with Wi-Fi, to the subterranean tunnel leading to the park, where visitors can still see encased archaeological ruins through glass windows on the floor.
In the short video, we also learn about the excellent Cuban food that you can find from street vendors and small family-run "paladares" in this part of Havana.
Making a connection with Cuba
With the series TipsIberostar, Iberostar hotels hope that tourists will make more of a connection with the location they're visiting, instead of just using the hotel as a base. After all, the Iberostar hotels are located in wonderful settings, each one with its own historic story to tell.
For example, here at Parque Central, visitors to the hotel are right on the doorstep of the neo-baroque Gran Teatro de la Habana Alicia Alonso, erected between 1907 and 1914, and featuring highly ornate architectural details.
It's the official stage for the Cuban National Ballet Company and the headquarters of the biennial International Ballet Festival. Dance presentations, ranging from ballet and contemporary dance, to Spanish-influenced choreography, are performed every weekend, and people come from all over the world to see them.
What's more, Iberostar Parque Central is situated near the Capitolio Nacional de La Habana building, a public edifice and one of the most visited sites in Havana. The building was commissioned by Cuban president Gerardo Machado and constructed between 1926 to 1929 under the direction of Eugenio Rayneri Piedra.
Breaking Havana into manageable chunks
When holidaying in a large city like Havana, attempting to see everything can be overwhelming, especially there are as many attractions as the Cuban capital has to offer.
TipsIberostar breaks each part of Havana into manageable chunks, tapping into the culture, art, history, and vibe that different parts of the city possess.
Havana is a unique city, and each part of Havana is unique. What makes Iberostar Parque Central unique is the overall experience and connection that each guest gets here.
