How much Tropicana Havana tickets cost?
The entrance tickets fee is $75 CUC, $85 CUC and $95 CUC per person, depending on the position of the seat’s row and is normal to think that the $95 CUC option is the best deal since it is located on the 1st or 2nd Seat’s row, well… it’s not! It is true that the seat’s row for this option is the 1st and the 2nd but not because of that you will have the best appreciation of the show. Definitely book the $85 CUC option, seat’s row is the 3rd and 4th and from there you will have a better spot.
How to book the Tropicana Show in Havana?
Book online! Many people wait until the same time to book the Tropicana Show, and I must say that the most of the time it works, we just go to the Cabaret early in the morning and our clients buy the entrance tickets without major problems, but it has happened that the place was already overbooked for the night. And after traveling from Varadero or from Vinales to see the show, it would not be the best idea just “to come back tomorrow”.
What is the Dress Code for the Cabaret?
Long pants are mandatory for gentlemen! I know, this may not be useful advice for most of you, since you may think “that is understood”, but you will not believe how many times our tour guide has had to give his pants to some of our clients so these can get into the Cabaret, so do not forget the long pants and closed shoes.
Girls you can go any way you like 😉

What is the Alternative for the Tropicana Havana Show?
Buena Vista Social Club would be your option number 1 if the Tropicana Havana Cabaret is not of your choice. The Cabaret show is kind of expensive and sometimes is overbooked.
In such cases our suggestion is to go for the Buena Vista Social Club, we actually have had clients who have visited both places and they have confessed to us that Buena Vista was just better.
The entrance fee for Buena Vista is $60 CUC per person and it includes the dinner, now in comparison with the dinner of the Tropicana, this one is just delicious as the Buena Vista Social Club Show takes place in El Guajirito Restaurant.
