Vedado is beautiful, close to everything. From there you can walk to Plaza de a Revolucion a few blocks away and very close to the Malecon. It is very nice to walk on any street admiring the architecture of the area. On Avenida Linea and 8 there are 2 economical and very good palates. On the Linea avenue, many buses pass by which, for 1 peso, they take you to downtown Havana and to Old Havana. It is a residential area, very safe at any time.
