Nigel's Special Hotels
La Habanera is a charming and budget-priced hotel on the main street, just steps from the main plaza, is housed in a recently restored colonial-era building dating from 1867. For better or worse, the original colonial tile-work has been replaced with rather soulless contemporary ceramics, but beautiful hardwood doors are a lovely touch.

The location is a major plus for sightseeing, but it comes at a price: At night noise from the partying in the square and the nearby rooftop La Terraza cabaret can wake the dead.

Lofty ceilings assist air-conditioning in keeping things cool in the 10 bedrooms that surround an atrium courtyard, and four upstairs rooms open onto narrow balconies.

Modest yet tasteful tropical-themed rattan furnishings and lively autumnal color schemes in the bedrooms contrast with simply colonial-style decor and clinical whites in public arenas.

All rooms have lofty ceilings, plus two twin beds – so honeymooners should plan accordingly. Four rooms share a balcony over the plaza. Satellite TVs offer four international channels, and modern bathrooms sparkle.

Details of Standard Room  
The 12 rooms are all spacious, with high ceilings, bright patterned bed linens, rattan headboards, and sparkling tile floors. All come with two twin beds, and for a budget option, you'll be surprised to find a large television, with four international cable channels. The best rooms are the four that share a long broad veranda overlooking Calle Maceo and the Central Park.

Guide to Baracoa
Cuba's remote Baracoa really has it all, for plenty of awe-inspiring experiences. It has Cuba's biggest rivers, mystical jungle mountains, biodiverse tropical wildlife, hillside plantations of coffee & chocolate (cacao), secluded beaches, coral reefs, the longest history, ancient traditions, vibrant culture and general spellbinding charisma.



Baracoa City is situated on a bay close to the eastern tip of the island of Cuba where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Founded in 1512 by Diego Velazquez, Baracoa is Cuba's oldest European settlement. Things are pretty laid back in this town and the abundance of palm trees along this coast give it a South Pacific feel.

The fact that this was an important Spanish outpost is evidenced by the three impressive forts: Fuerte Matachin, now housing the museo municipal; Fuerte de la Punta, now refitted with a restaurant; and El Castillo de Seboruco, which is now a pleasant hotel.

On calle Antonio Maceo, you'll find people queuing for hot chocolate drinks in the baking tropical sun at the Casa del Chocolate, opposite is a lovely Casa de la Trova, holding rooftop performances and you can't forget to visit Plaza Independencia (it is the focal point for community life in the city), Yunque de Baracoa and The Stone Zoo, which comprises a multitude of stone animals.
