Regla is a municipality in Havana, Cuba, with a long tradition of Santería. The neighbourhood is located facing Old Havana, just across the bay, and can be accessed by boat from the port.

A very interesting aspect of this town is the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Regla, a small and beautiful white church with a beautiful image of the Virgen Negra with a white baby on her arms.

Regla’s atmosphere is still quite that of a small, rural and quiet port town that has nothing to do with Havana. Its streets are flanked by old houses that now function as small businesses.

The hub of Regla is Plaza Guaycanamá Square, where the particularly rhythmical life in this town develops in full. Here you will also find the Céspedes Theatre.

This charming neighbourhood is also known for being the location of a large thermal power station and a shipyard. Regla is far from mass tourism and is perfect for an afternoon trip or to get away from the crowds in other areas.

Other captivating places in Regla are: Eduardo Gómez Luaces Municipal Museum of Regla, Colina Lenin Hill, a monument devoted to Lenin which includes a monolithic image of the politician and an olive tree planted by Bosch, surrounded by seven human statues.

How to get here:

The best option to get to Regla is to take the ferry that departs every 15 minutes from Puerto Luz, in the crossing between San Pedro and Santa Clara, Havana. It costs around 0.25 CUC. To board with a bike, you should get in line at a different lane that boards a little earlier. You can also reach Regla by road, renting a car, or by bus, taking line 29 from Parque Maceo Park to Guanabacoa.
