HEADQUARTERS

National Hotel

The central point will be the National Hotel, located beside the Malecon in the modern neighbourhood of Vedado. All of our classes during the week will take place in or around the National Hotel and all of the buses for our afternoon and night time activities will leave from in front of the hotel.

Vedado is a fantastic neighbourhood with nightlight, theatres, hotels and restaurants. All private houses (Casa’s particulares) offered by the festival will be located within a radius of less than 5 blocks around National Hotel to ensure that participants can easily work each day to the festival location.
