Ambos Mundos Hotel, Hemingway's room museum.
In the Hotel Ambos Mundos, the room 511 stay exactly similar to when in her the North American celebrated writer Ernest Hemingway lived, his first residence in Cuba (1932-1939), space that was, as he said, ideal to write.
Cojímar is a small fishing town located seven kilometers to the east of Havana. This town is famous for being the setting of Hemingway’s most famous novel: “The Old Man and the Sea,” which allowed him to be awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1954. Hemingway use to dock his boat “El Pilar” here during the 40s and 50s.
The writer rented this house in 1939, and a year later bought it and lived in it continuously until he returned to the US in 1960. Here, Hemingway wrote a large part of the works “For Whom the Bells Tolls”, “The Old Man and the Sea” and “Islands in the Stream”.
The house is preserved as the writer left it. Hemingway donated it together with his trophies and its contents to the Cuban people, therefore, the house has been the incentive for some rare shows of cooperation between the US and Cuba.
