Tips › Parque Lenin
Parque Lenin is a large park (750 ha) at the Southern edge of the city and a popular destination for recreation or entertainment and a place to picnic during the weekend.
Parque Lenin provides amusement for adults and children such as caroussels, bicycle hire, horse riding and a motorcycle circuit.
The park is not a typical tourist attraction, but a pleasant location to spend a Sunday. I enjoyed the horse riding through the beautiful park together with our Cuban guides. Even if you never have been on the back of a horse, the guides will teach you the essentials in less than five minutes.
Parque Lenin can be reached by the Camello bus, but I advise you to travel by car or taxi.
For maximum fun we invited a bunch of Cuban friends, rented a minibus with a driver and did the trip “a lo Cubano”, the Cuban way, that's with the rum bottle at hand. I never before had such a pleasant horse riding afternoon.
