Counter-Strike Wiki

Havana (cs_havana) is an official Hostage rescue map featured in Counter-Strike, Counter-Strike (Xbox), Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, and Counter-Strike: Source.


The map is set in the city of Havana, Cuba.

In Counter-Strike: Source, the environment dynamically changes between rounds. For example, in one round a window may be open but in the next one it will be closed. Due to this, Havana is a very difficult, if not impossible map to master, and as such is one of the least played maps in the game.

Official Description

Terrorists: You are holding political hostages in Habana Vieja, awaiting a chopper lift which will arrive to evacuate you immediately after the round ends.

Counter-Terrorists: You have control of the perimeter and must now rescue all of the surviving hostages before the terrorists manage to escape.

  • In Counter-Strike 1.6 and Condition Zero, there is a inaccessible door at the CT spawn. Noclipping/spectator through the door reveals a 40's pickup truck and an overview of the map.
  • Between Counter-Strike 1.6 and Condition Zero, the only major change for this map was the lighting (as it was greatly increased in CZ).
  • The upstairs rooms appear to be color coded as the green rooms face the courtyard while the yellow rooms lead to the atrium.
  • Graffiti depicting the famous Communist revolutionary Che Guevara can be seen on several walls.
  • In Counter-Strike: Source, bots may have navigation issues when the doors or windows at the apartments have been closed (off). They may attempt to access through these areas and will get stuck, thus resulting them in wasting time.
  • In Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, in one of the hostage rescue spots, there is graffiti saying "Viva Fidel!" along with the flag of Cuba.
