“Without a doubt, a small piece of Cuba hidden in Cartagena. Café Bar Havana, or the corner of the movement, as they know it in the city, was created by the Spanish Gabriel Mas in 2006. It is located in a sector of Getsemani called the Media Luna Street that summarizes the joy and the enthusiasm typical of the area; Havana is to find a tropical environment that evokes its bars and restaurants with live music and that infect locals and tourists to immerse themselves in the most cheerful and fun party in the city. World-class tourists, including great personalities such as Hillary Clinton or local personalities such as Gabriel García Márquez or Juan Manuel Santos, have delighted their palate with the refreshing spirits offered in this small corner of Getsemani.”
