I am old Cuba hand - 30 visits over 10 years - just back from Havana. As others have noted the fun quotient is receding. There are police, who can act rather arbitrarily, in plentiful numbers. In old Havana there are now hidden 360 degree TV cameras that all the locals know about. Most girls avoid old Havana during the day because they don't want to be caught on tape or on the TV monitors in the central police facility.
If your Spanish is good, there are still lots of opportunities. But if your a neophyte and without a experienced guide you'll be less than thrilled. I was recently in Rio and found the action and the openness more fun than Havana in it's current state.In Cuba because of the faltering economy lots of regular girls are eager to jump into the sack or get married or anything in between. But they are also very nervous because of the ongoing crack down. I always liked having a few girlfriends rather than the hard core types. Now those sweet, sexy and oh so delectable girls are afraid to walk with foreigners, sit in cafes with you, go to the beach, etc. In short they are paranoid about Communist big brother.On this trip, I picked up many delights and paid the standard $30 to $40 bucks. But I had to hail a taxi and take them to my apartment without much delay. If you look forward to wandering around taking in the sites and having a little human interactions before or after fucking, then Havana is not the place to be.
It's only been in the last year and a half that you see young girls with pimps. The ones on the make without a male chaperone know the cops and pay off. Corruption is setting in. Girls who don't pay off the cops are threatened with arrest and hit up for bribes. Many cops fuck these jinateras before they let them go. I picked up a dancer popular at a review and apparently a cop followed us to my apartment. When I came down with her a couple hours later he was still waiting outside! After a long drawn out scene of talking with the girl I slipped him $10 bucks and everything was fine. It seems ridiculous for a him to wait for the chance of such a small bribe but the average cops salary is $10 bucks a month so I guess he figured it was worth it.I love Cuba but my next trip will be to Bahia, Brazil. I don't like the hassles.A word about internet connection. It's generally around $5 buck an hour in a Hotel. But the connections during the day can be maddening. One afternoon it took me 38 minutes to connect to my Yahoo email account. I just managed to get read two messages and send one before my hour was up. If you need to use the internet in Cuba for business or important stuff plan to check it late at night.If you are headed to Havana there are still a couple of sure bets. In old Havana, Don Giovanni's the outdoor pizza place with live bands (near the bay) is a sure winner. The girls are three deep watching the music and hoping that you'll motion them over to your table for a beer. Most night's there were 50 or more girls there from early evening on. Also on Calle Obisbo check out the jazz room in the Florida Hotel. There nobody is hassled and you can ask a waiter or one of the hangers on to find you some action. The lower Prado area near the Malecon is also a good street spot from about 10 AM to midnight. You have to be a bit subtle if a patrolmen is around.
If you find
a girl and want to visit a nice restaurant and zone largely free of police,
visit Plaza Vieja. Basically take a right (facing the bay) off Plaza de
Armas - the book sellers square - and walk about 6 blocks through Old Havana.
Plaza Vieja is restored now but hasn't registered with the tourists yet.
These streets around in the Plaza Vieja area are a good place to meet sweet
and willing regular girls if you speak Spanish. And the cafes are great.Finally,
Cafe Cantanta alongside the National Theater is still a good spot for action.
At five on many evenings young Cubans go to see live music and can pay in
pesos. Around 11 there are usually shows with great bands for covers that
run about $10. Most nights there are pretty lasses outside hoping you will
invite them in and pay there cover. Oh yes, one more spot if you can stand
loud music bouncing of the walls - the new Casa de Musica on Galliano is
a good pick up spot. Though I couldn't stand the noise.Basically
the Cuban economy is floundering again and there's a lot of frustration
in the air. The leadership is out of touch and worried about the bad press
concerning prostitution. Tourism is off something like 15% this year. As
the words gets out that the PARTY IS OVER it will fall more next year. I
mean Cuba is not a family destination. The food is greasy and wretched.
And not that many people want to go see crumbling architecture no matter
how historic it is. The bosses will ease up when they think the populace
is getting restless. When that will be is anybody's guess. But like I said
if you are an experienced veteran of Central and South America and speak
Spanish Cuba is special. Otherwise I would try a more tourist friendly locale.
