The singer arrived in Havana on Monday. Excited crowds have gathered outside the hotel where she is staying in historic Old Havana, but have caught few glimpses of the 58-year-old star.
Fan Taimi Estrada Joba says she hopes to see Madonna perform a concert in Cuba someday. In her words, 'We are very happy she came.'
A string of U.S. celebrities has visited Havana as part of a boom in tourism set off by the declaration of detente with the U.S. in December 2014. Cuban state media posted enthusiastic reports about Madonna's visit and the Foreign Ministry sent a string of tweets welcoming her.
