Hemingway first came to Havana in 1928 with his family spending his days there waiting to board their ship to Spain.
He was charmed from the beginning, and maintained a room at The Hotel Ambos Mundos from 1932 until 1940 when he purchased his Havana home, Finca La Virgia.
For the next 20 years the house became his chosen refuge. It is in this house that the Nobel Prize winner wrote some of his most notable works:
For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Old Man and the Sea, and his memoir A Movable Feast.
In Havana, along with discerning his kinship for cats, Hemingway also discovered the Daiquiri.
A divine, ice cold, combinations of fresh juice and rum. Whether you want to take after Hemingway and drink “to make people more interesting,” or simply looking for an exotic escape, this lively libation is just your thing!
