The Florida Hotel has more than 125 years keeping the yesteryear majesty. Its location and history put it among the favorite of the city. Located on the Obispo street, one of the main boulevards of the Historical Center in Old Havana, the center presents an architectural singular beauty that distinguishes it among the other buildings that surround it. 

The Commander Hotel is an installation that keeps the colonial architectonic elements. It is near important tourist spots of Old Havana. Among the attractive centers for lodgings located around the Historical Center of Havana, one stands out for its internal structure where the intimacy, the silence and the interior peace of the place offer its guests an ideal stay for resting, in a kind of isolation of the hectic Havanan city.

Its bars and restaurants remind us of old Iberian places. Set in the colonial time of XVII, XVIII and XIX centuries, the Valencia Inn is one of the singular lodging centers of the Historical Center of Havana. Located a few steps away from Square of Arms, the installation becomes a special space for the valencians and for the Spaniards in general, due to its atmosphere and other characteristics.

The repayment of the remaining amount was structured over 18 years and the first payment of about $ 40 million, was made before October 31. "The Cuban government has paid the first installment and has done soon", said the French Ambassador to Cuba, Jean-Marie Bruno. Under the agreement with the Paris Club the 14 countries had a year to sign restructuring pacts that could include the establishment of local accounts, where a percentage of the money owed would be earmarked for development projects.

  • The Roswell Park Cancer Institute, based in the city of Buffalo, will hold in the United States a clinical trial of a Cuban vaccine against lung cancer. The goal is to test the CimaVax-EGF, a treatment developed by the Molecular Immunology Center in Havana. The institute, one of the most important of its kind in the world, becomes the first American medical institution to receive approval from the Food and Drug Administration to test a Cuban medical therapy in that country. The clinical trial is expected to begin in November and to involve roughly 60 - 90 US patients. Although CimaVax-EGF does not provide a cure of the disease, it contributes to slow the growth of tumors and is less toxic than chemotherapy. In this regard, it has already shown promising results in Cuba, and other countries like Peru, Colombia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
