Caleton Blanco
Caletón Blanco (White Inlet), as the name suggests, is an area where sandy inlets abound. This is a zone where there are not wide beaches, that is why the inlets stand out and make even more beautiful this region’s landscapes. On the front side, they have the sea, on the back the colossal view of the Sierra Maestra, outlining a sight unique in its natural beauty.
Chivirico
Chivirico is a picturesque village with a population of about 15,000 on the South coast of Cuba about half an hours drive west of Santiago de Cuba. Chivirico has many street vendors hawking all kinds of local specialties from pushcarts that resemble popcorn wagons.

As well as hotels Los Galeones and Brisas Sierra Mar there is of a small (two room) island hotel called Cayo Damas just a few miles outside of Chivirico.
Contramaestre
The city & municipality of Contramaestre lies on the main highway roughly midway between Santiago de Cuba and Bayamo. The 610 sq km of Contramaestre municipality has a population of about 100k.

The name Contramaestre means "a foreman, vigilante or master of factory workers", but here the word was used when "the master" tributary of River Cauto was discovered here in the 16th Century, and called Rio Contramaestre.

The recommended route to Hotel Villa El Salton is via the rather spiffing (newly tarmaced 2010) scenic road from Contramaestre City.

La Mula La Plata & Las Cuevas
La Mula is at the mouth of Rio La Mula (AKA Rio Turquino), on Cuba's South coast 124km west of Santiago de Cuba. Rising abruptly up to 1974m (6476 ft) from La Mula is the majestic Sierra Maestra mountain range. To add to the drama, to the south of La Mula is the Cayman trough. The sea floor drops abruptly downward to 7686m (25,217 ft) to Cayman Trough. At the bottom of which are the world's deepest & hottest volcanic vents & "black smokers".

But just 15m down & 30 metres from La Mula shore, snorkelers will be delighted to discover the well preserved shipwreck of a Spanish Navy Giuseppe Garibaldi-class armored cruiser, the Cristobal Colon (1897).

The Rio La Plata river gives its name to both the historically important small settlement, La Plata, at its mouth, & the Comandancia La Plata, at it source.

La Plata was the site of Fidel Castro's Cuban Revolution's first victorious skirmish against Batista's government troops on 17th January 1957. The Museo de la Plata is open Tue to Sat for $1 CUC.

The Comandancia General La Plata was Fidel Castro's rebel army's principal command post from 1958. The preserved wooden cabins are nowadays best reached by a ridgetop trail from Alto de Naranjo, high above Hotel Villa Santa Domingo. The later is only reachable by car from the North, the Granma Province side.

Las Cuevas, & its visitor centre, lies between La Mula & La Plata, & is the starting point of the awesomely steep & beautiful trail to Cuba's highest mountain peaks, Pico Cuba (1872m) & Pico Turquino (1972).
