Havana is best seen by night. Not that it isn't interesting in the sun, too. But at night the colors are more saturated. The music coming out of every bar door has a bounce you can't deny. And, there's rum. Mojitos, daiquiris, and shots of dark Havana Club Añejo, all chased with a strong Bucanero beer. Luckily there are plenty of 1950s American cabs for the ride home.
