HAVANA TIMES — Havana Bay and the ferry that crosses over to Regla contains a lot of memories, both fond and tragic, as well as daily routines for residents of the community facing Old Havana.


For those worshipping Yemaya, the goddess of the ocean, the shoreline is a special place. Today we take a ride on the ferry and get a view of both sides of the bay.

  • Thank you for sharing that. A slice of history which I imagine is reflective of a lot of countries with Afro/Caribbean populations amongst them. For me it reminded me of West London in the 1960s, although the music would have been Ska and Reggae.

  • Thank you for this. i presume the bar is Dos Hermanos?! A few changes from over half a century ago as these days you rarely see a man wear a suit unless he is a compere. *Who produces the suits Cuban officials wear anyway?) More importantly, regular night ferries have long gone. Still, I would recommend to any tourist to leave Habana Vieja behind and explore a different planet called Regla.
