This is the place to visit in Baracoa if you want a drink, internet cards and (if I remember correctly) wifi. The under-cover ground-floor outdoor bar looks out over the Atlantic and you don't need to join the long queues at other places to buy an internet card, or pay more than the going rate (2 CUC per card for...

Nelson, in particular was wonderful the new hotel was very nice, and we were well... More

I stayed for 6 days and only had a hot water shower 1 day. If you stay on an ocean side room, when it rains, it will come into your room. The staff are excellent, the management indifferent. When I wrote to Cubaism, they indicated it would take 3 to 6 months to resolve. In the day of the internet,... More
