Really liked the show. May not be suitable for children. If comes with a mojito. Other drinks available for a reasonable extra cost. The cost of doing this as a shore excursion instead of on your own is a high. FYI, if you have time absolutely look around the hotel before the show. It is very interesting. Read Less

It was okay and certainly colourful but also mildly disturbing. Don't expect the Moulin Rouge. The venue is very cramped and was quite busy when we went. The Mojito drink was good but took a very long time to appear and it was then impossible to order more as there weren't enough people serving. It can be summarised as a lot of very young and very slender girls parading about with little clothing and very high feathered headdresses on their heads - roughly to music. There were also a lot of nipple tassels - 21st century entertainment this was not. There were some older guys singing too. I'm sure they join waiting lists to be able to do this as it's an escape from their everyday lives but it was all a bit dated and distasteful. Read Less

A truly Cuban experience. A throwback to the old nightclubs and showgirls of Vegas. Very elaborate costumes and dance numbers. Nothing too risque though. Nothing like burlesque although some of the costumes are a little revealing. It is much smaller than Tropicana but indoors at the Hotel Nacional. It's packed pretty tightly inside and everyone gets a free mojito. Show starts at 10pm and goes on for almost 2 hours. Read Less

I am kind of glad I went but it was the most bizzare show I have ever seen. Cuban dance and song is very different. Super talented performers. I just didn't understand it. I feel like you have to attend a show while in Cuba but not sure I would go again. The theater room was super cramped. You are crammed into tables with very little room. If there has been a fire, it would have been a stampede to get out. The hotel was beautiful and a throwback to the 1950s. Definitely go and have a mojito. Read Less

This is in the Hotel Nationale; a shame that people who had not been to the hotel during the day didn't get a chance to see the non-club space. The entertainment here was a bit more varied than the Tropicana and was enjoyable. The tables and chairs are VERY close together making it difficult to get up other than at the end of the show. Received a Mojito pre show. Read Less

Short bus ride along Malecon to the Hotel Nacional de Cuba with some free time prior to the 10pm show to roam the grounds and grab a quick drink. Doors opened at 9pm and included a small mojito. However, the tour guests were sitting right-on-top of each at tables of 4-6 with shoulders basically touching. The variety show lasted ~1.5 hours and included a mix of singers (in Spanish), dancers, musicians, and even a magician. Read Less
