InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Havana

Hello to all Americans in Havana! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Havana? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Havana which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Havana has plenty to offer for expats. The Cuban capital is a bustling city known for its major port, live music, museums, architecture, and much more! With the bus services, trains, ferries, and road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Casablanca or Baracoa, for example, which are less than a 20-minute drive away from Havana’s center.

Although Havana has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Havana, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
