After departing the pier, you will go to Cojimar, the district where Hemingway docked his boat Pilar. Not only did he use the town as a base for fishing, Cojimar was the background for one of his most famous works, The Old Man and the Sea. The ‘old man’ in the title is reputedly his guide Gregorio Fuentes, a Cojimar local.
You will go to Café Ajiaco Restaurant, where you will be welcomed at the restaurant’s door with a welcome cocktail, and then make a quick visit to Cojimar and its most emblematic places.
