Havana Moon is a 1983 album by Carlos Santana released as a solo project.

It features covers of Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry songs and performances by Booker T & the MGs, Willie Nelson and The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and also Carlos' father Jose singing "Vereda Tropical" — a song Carlos had first heard when his father was serenading his mother following an argument.
