Tour Details

Since the early years in the last century, in the province of Havana, was Villa Mina, the beautiful suburban property once owned by Regino Truffin. Surrounded by a luxuriant tropical forest and now a fairy-tale dream for a nightclub that became a legend in the history of world musical and variety shows and that at a time was known as the "most attractive and sumptuous nightclub in the world:" the mythic Tropicana Nightclub.

A group of entrepreneurs, headed by Victor de Correa, wanted to setup a nightclub in this very location. Choreographer and show director Sergio Orta suggested naming it "Tropicana," the title of a song by composer and flutist Alfredo Brito, that had been played for the first time in that very place. That was the name it received in the 1940 New Year Eve celebrations; the new boite de nuit had opened its doors a year before on Saint Sylvester's Eve. Correa, who was not a newcomer to that type of business activity, achieved a very successful opening. His wife, songstress Teresita de Espana, was one of the main attractions in its early shows.

Very soon Tropicana became a favorite spot for the most select and affluent in society. The spell of Cuban nights, with starry skies, warm tropical moon, hot and languid music, dazzling women and its exuberant gardens created for its visitors the feeling of being in an unreal world of exotic splendor.

All the acts perform and sing in Spanish and dance on an open-air stage cocooned by tropical greenery. Be escorted to your seat where a small welcome glass of sparkling wine and a snack will be given to you. Enjoy a bit of Havana Club rum throughout the performance and later you will be served dinner. This is truly a unique place in the world to enjoy the music and the Cuban and Caribbean folklore in all their color, musicality and rhythm.

Everything went well with pick up and return. I would suggest that you do not include dinner with the show. This would lower the cost. Just provide the drinks and snacks. The food was really very bad. We ate nothing. The show was great.
