This area is so different from the rest of Havana. It's broad road (Avenida 5), has benches and shrubs in the middle, and is flanked by beautiful mansions, which now house many embassies and their staff (so cars are not allowed to stop to take photos), so worth taking the time to walk around the area.
We took a tour of this area and I feel in love with the beauty. This is a more upscale area. Many of the consulates are located in this area. Some of the areas look just like Coral Gables.
