Havana Warnings and Dangers: 52 reviews and 29 photos

When walking back from a baseball game at the estadio latinoamericano with a group of people, someone came up and tried to steal me bag from me. We were able to fight them off eventually, although they came back a few times after I had initially broken free of their grip on my bag, and chased us down the street a little ways. Our Cuban friends we were with told us that type of thing almost never happens, and were I think more frightened then we were. The streets around the stadium are not that safe and pretty deserted, so definitely be careful. Generally that kind of thing really isn't a problem in Cuba, although we heard stories of similar situations happening even in more populated areas of Habana, so it may be increasing.
