“Nice Little Waterside Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

The park at the tip of Punta Gorda offers access to the water, a tranquil and shady area for relaxing, and some killer mojitos (cheap too) at the little cabana bar. Most of the quaint, smallish houses on the road to the park are B&Bs that look to be in very good condition (these became legal in Cuba in 2010). There is also the Dolphin Hotel; its Lizard Villa restaurant is right on the water and the food is very tasty. A little further back is the replica Moorish castle built as a casino by Bautista's brother before the 1959 revolution. The rooftop bar is an ideal sunset-watching location. A couple more on-the-water restaurants, including the enjoyable Casa Verde, line the road on the other side as you begin heading back into Cienfuegos.

nice view, nice drinks, a bit expensive, and there was a very nice band playing when we were there. Very relaxing and quiet place all in all.

“Beautiful sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

A nice place to walk toward the evening. At the very end there is a small park where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset drinking a mojito. Actually the best mojito we drunk during our stay in Cuba.

We stayed at the Hotel Jagua on the Punta Gorda and enjoyed walking around this area. There is a little park at the end with a gazebo and it was so pretty at sunset. There is also a little bar in the park where you can enjoy at mojito if you want to while strolling.
