Cojimar once was a small village east of Havana where a few fishermen were living. It is now part of ditrict Habana del Este (Eastern Havana), about 10 km west from the center.
Cojimar was founded by the Spain in 1649 when they erected the small castle you can see in the pictures.
It is famous because Ernest Hemingwas lived there for a few years. Also hid motoryacht "Pinar" was lying there in the harbour. There he wrote the novel "The Old Man and the Sea", describing the fight between the fisherman Santiago and a giant merlin.
After Hemingway's death 1961 a rondell was erected in Cojimar containing a bust of Hemingway (with a wrong date of birth on it)

Travel Information

Many agencies provide guided tours to the places where Hemingway lived on Cuba. This is was we did so we came there by a hired car with our guide. Therefore I can't give any information how to get there otherwise. But if you are driving yourself parking is not any problem.
