Great excursion, loved the history and the architecture, the gold set in the alter is above all imaginable to see. We loved the sugar cane plantation and the steam engine museum. Disappointed that although we went to the cigar factory and saw the making of...More

Despite the rain managed to come to this magnificent church with a lot of history. The ceiling of the church looked like a ship that was really awesome.

First, being from a young country like Canada to go to a village established in 1515 is mind blowing. Stepping into a Catholic Church built in the early 1700's with all the original wood work, flooring, ceiling and statues is aweinspiring. The 24K gold leaf...More

Went on this tour in February 2018. It was interesting. Don't forget to take some $$ to leave. Also if you take clothes etc to give away, this a good place to do it as the church will distribute them to the needy for you....More

This church is beautiful and feels like it’s caught in time. It’s really well maintained and I would recommend it for all tourists, not just those that are religious. You are allowed to take pictures and has rich history.

If you are flying with Sunwing they usually sell tours en route to Cuba. There are also a few tour operators rep at the hotel. We brought toiletries ( toothpaste, toothbrush, cheap make up) and they were very appreciative.
