Havana



What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

Mostly, we go to each other's houses, to kids parties, and to dinner at various restaurants. There are also good music venues and an art scene. - Jan 2, 2016
Most people get together with other expats, meeting in houses or private restaurants (paladars). Many people join the Havana Club, which has a restaurant, pools, tennis, mini-golf, and a private beach, but is strange in that Cubans are not allowed to join. - May 4, 2014
Lots of dinner parties, cookouts, cocktail hours, kids parties. There is plenty of stuff to do in town if you look for it and don't need a CLO or an MWO to force feed you activities. - Aug 14, 2013
Quite a lively social scene. - Jul 9, 2011
