Sunset people watching
Mar 2020 • Solo
Great place to get some space around you while watching the day end and the evening begin. Take a walk down the prado to the water for sunset.

Morning visit in Cienfuegos
Feb 2020
Cienfuegos is an attractive town with a dramatic statue of Jose Marti in the main square. You'll also find the "zero kilometre" emblem in the square, marking the central point of the town. We’d recommend a bar on one side of this square called El Palatino. If you're atall interested in Cuban music then make sure you find the statue of Benny More on the main road through the town. More was born nearby in 1919, and dominated much of the Cuban music scene until his death in the 1960's - performing with famous orchestras he gained the epithet "el barbaro del ritmo" (the barbarian of rythm")
Back in the Parque Joe Marti you can enjoy the harmonious ensemble of buildings, including the Thetro Tomas Terry and the Catedral de la Purismo Concepcion. A most pleasant ambience

worth a detour

Not all that much in Cienfuegos, but worth a detour for an hour or so if you are going from Havana to Trinidad

The Town Square
Jan 2020
This park is beautiful, clean, safe-feeling and spacious. What more could you want for reading a book, studying the city map, people-watching. Surrounding the park are several cafes with outdoor seating as well as a worthy breakfast at the Cafe Paulina.

Cienfuegos key historic area
Feb 2020 • Couples
If you are visiting Cienfuegos this is the main historic square so would be difficult to miss. Big statue of Jose Martin in the centre along with an attractive commerative workers structure.

The square is surrounded by lots of interesting and historical buildings including the theatre, which can be visited and the art museum in the beautiful blue French style building. If you don't want to visit the museum you can pay 2 CUC to climb the short tower for good views over the square and city in general.

Nice square

Lovely open square in City centre. Possibly the best square I came across in Cuba. Also serves as a wifi hotspot. Good art galleries on one side of square.
