Cienfuegos is a marine port of call. It is of-course a city that is a visual treat to anyone doing mileage across Cuba. Why is it a treat? Easy-peasy; its nestled on the shore of a beautiful bay, Bahia de Cienfuegos. Its a well paved...More

Punta Gorda is lovely to see from a bici cab, nice and slow, so you can admire the once grand and now decaying mansions - although some have been beautifully restored. Ask your driver to drop and wait for you at the entrance to the...More

If you're looking for peace, beauty and the natural wonder of Cuba, here's where to go. Meditate on the view. Have a drink, eat, meet wonderful people and have fun. Cuba is a wondetful island and the people are honest, hard working and educated.

We had at that place a lovely (Alcohol free) cocktail in the sun at the sea with a great view. People are all friendly and it was not crowdy at all so a very relaxing experience

I walked in early morning from central town to end of Punta Gorda but easily would make an evening amble too. A great place to watch a sunset and stop at one of the bars for a drink. A breath of fresh air .

All houses well kept and painted, beautiful sea view everywhere you look at and people friendly. We had a great time touring Cienfuegos and Punta Gorda with our guide Felicia from Viajes Vintage. Highly recommended.

Punta Gorda is absolutely stunning, the view is fantastic and the period buildings along the promenade are amazing, one after the next. For us, this is the best part of Cienfuegos. It is worth taking a bicitaxi as you move slower and therefore have more...More
