Cuba is the home of the Mojito and what better place to indulge in a couple of these refreshing, minty treats than a visit to what is reckoned to be their birthplace – La Bodeguita del Medio.
Said to have also been one of Hemingway’s favourite bars back in the day, this atmospheric haunt makes an excellent stopping off place in Old Havana.
It is a spot that is touted by many to be very touristy, and really does get very crowded but I would suggest not letting this put you off as the place simply oozes history and is somewhere I really enjoyed.
The band playing was awesome; the Mojito excellent, with a very generous free pour of rum; and I just couldn’t resist making my own mark on the walls as so many have done before me!
