Cuba Shopping: 41 reviews and 36 photos

  The not-so-trendy Calle Obispo
by swesn
 
 

Calle Obispo is touted as the main shopping street of Havana.

OK, this is NOT Rodeo Drive. Indeed, there appear to have more shops along the pedestrian street, but with not much material goods available in Cuba, do not expect too much.

There are some souvenir stores for tourists and also some household stores. For snacks, you can buy something from the many Cuban-Pesos home-run window stalls too.

The street indeed is very busy and seems very popular among the locals as well. There are many harassments too due to the large number of tourists.
