We booked through our rep. went with our 2 girls aged 6 and 9. They loved the horse back riding and holding all the animals in the mini zoo. Really nice day out . Lovely friendly staff. Would recommend for a family day out.

The staff are very friendly & helpful, and the scenery is beautiful. However the conditions in the "mini zoo" are appalling. Most of the birds & animals are kept in tiny bare cages full of urine & faeces, with no enrichment , no vegetation & little shade. The misery on the face of the monkeys kept in a bare cage... More

My niece and I wanted to go horseback riding and this place was the perfect place for it. We were able to ride through mountain trails, on the beach and were able to experience a very authentic Cuban meal after the ride. When our meal was over we were treated to a visit of the gardens where the farmer treated... More

The overall experience was pretty neat. Visited the zoo, complete with a 40+ year old tortoise, and a couple of crocodiles. Took a ride on a wagon drawn by oxen and had a delicious lunch at the open air restaurant. The highlight was a beautiful Cuban Emerald Hummingbird, so close, I could have reached out and touched it.

I have waited a long time to write this review of the best fishing tour in Holguin area... yes you can go fishing for marlin and their friends but very few actually have a day like I enjoyed for such a reasonable price... get your rep in the hotel to make your reservations... the tour operators don't include this in...

We have gone four times in our two visits to Holguin. We love it. Three hours of fishing and then fresh cooked fish and banana chips.

We walked to the park in just over 10 minutes from Memories Hotel. We sat with a beer and chatted to Roger, the barman and one of the head guides, learning about the various activities on offer. We also learnt a great deal about the Cuban way of life during our conversation - fascinating! Despite there being plenty to choose... More

Nice horseback riding... The scenary is just OK. This is a large park, be prepared for 2 hours horseback riding, otherwise you can just rake a walk in the beautiful cuban countryside. Take a few cuc for a beer afterwards

As a keen horse rider this is a great opportunity to ride a well mannered horse in beautiful surroundings. The scenery is lovely with plenty of photo opportunities. Make sure you wear insect repellent and a hat.
