You can make a reservation for show with a 3 course dinner, or for just the show and a quarter bottle of rum and coke. Since it opened in 1939, the world famous Tropicana has become a shrine to tropical sexuality. Surviving the post revolutionary culling of American neocolonialist symbols of sin, it is now a big tourist attraction. Two hundred dancing queens shake their tassles, ruffle their feathers and let it all well and truly hang out in this fleshy feast. The heavily choreographed routine is performed to tunes that run the gamut of Cuban musical genres. With an open air setting, known as Paradise Under the Stars, you get your money back if it rains. There is a disco until the wee small hours. It is best to take a tour, which includes transport, as a taxi from La Habana Vieja costs about 15 CUC
