The presidents of Venezuela and Bolivia will arrive in Cuba later on Tuesday to pay their respects to Fidel Castro.
They will join thousands of people taking part in a rally in Havana to honour their former President and international icon.
ITV News is in the capital and found even among Castro's greatest supporters there is a wish to change and modernise the country - but without doing anything to sacrifice the health and education systems he introduced.

One of the defining leaders of the 20th century, Fidel Castro, who has died at the age of 90, was seen as both pariah and people's champion.
He led a coup in 1959 to overthrow the regime of the US-backed former Cuban president Fulgencio Batista, and remained hostile to Washington throughout his life.
Castro survived countless assassination attempts, including an exploding cigar, and ruthlessly jailed many political opponents. He also led the world to the brink of nuclear war in the 1960s.
Castro stepped down as Cuba's president 10 years ago after suffering a severe gastrointestinal illness, and before his 90th birthday in August he told supporters he expected to die soon.
