Beautiful structure of Che Guevara. Nice and small museum with some important information about who Che Guevara was. You have to save your bag or belongings before entering the museum.

If you want to know anything about Cuba history, this is a must see. I would have given a Very Good except the mausoleum was closed when we were there. I couldn't even find a postcard or picture of it, which was a shame.

I was in awe of the entire Mausoleum. The immense sculpture of Ernesto Che Guevera at the front. The mausoleum itself was very tranquil, lovely resting place for a hero of his country.

Probably one of the highlights of my trip to Cuba. Nothing much else in the town, but definitely worth visiting this monument for a daytrip

Beautiful place with an adjacent museum (photos and objects belonged to him) and a big plaza with 28 palm trees, 14 from each side (Che's birthday 14/06/28 indication) and a big statue/murals with his quotes/letter/conquest map.

It's a good idea to have a guide as the notices in the museum are only in Spanish but I'm sorry I don't know how to get one as ours were arranged by our tour operator. The only option might be to ask your hotel, they can... More

Che museum is in Santa Clara in the middle of the island. From both, Havana and Varadero it's around 3 hrs ride. Going there only for it isn't worth it. I suggest you organize a tour of Santa Clara, Cienfuegos and... More

day trip to Santa Clara (Mausoleo del Che Guevara) (13 Replies)
Hello, I plan to stay in Cienfuegos for one night and hopefully during the stay I would like to make a short trip to Mausoleo del Che Guevara. Viazul seems to offer only one bus to Santa Clara (15.30->16.50) and no return bus... Is there any way to make this trip besides by Viazul? If taxi can offer the round trip, it may be fine but do they offer such a service? how much will it be..?

Just go to the bus station and ask the taxi drivers there about taking you to Santa Clara... many will be there waiting for just such an opportunity. The cost should be no more than 60cuc, but you can likely negotiate something less than that. Terry
