Need a tender to get in, about 10 minutes. Plenty of colonial architecture. Cigar rolling demo. Shopping opportunities are basically cigars, rum, and coffee. Local crafts, but didn't see much of interest.
We did the overnight excursion to Havana. Trip, including a stop, is 3.5 hours each way; a very good motorcoach (with bathroom) made the trip tolerable. Cuba is a poor country and we saw a lot of horse and wagon transportation in the countryside. Excursion included all meals, which were good with plenty to eat, a walking tour, rides in the vintage cars (fun) and the Tropicana show (great).
If we go to Cuba again, it will be on a ship the docks in Havana.
