Villa Santo Domingo
While some visitors make a beeline for Cuba’s luxury all-inclusive beach resorts, there’s another type of traveler who wants to experience the "real" Cuba, where nature, culture, history and daily life converge.
This area fits the profile perfectly. It’s near where the rebel troops set up their mountain headquarters in the late fifties and is a superlative setting for exploring Cuba’s natural bounty.+ Read more
The Villa Santo Domingo opened its doors in 2012 near the river Yara. A beautiful wooden structure, this hotel with a restaurant, bar, grill, garden and even comfy sun loungers, is completely integrated with its natural surroundings. The 20 wooden bungalows are in two-story blocks with breathtaking views.
It sounds like a cliché, but it really feels like time has stood still here. Horses and donkeys serve as transport for exploring the area’s historical and natural sites, and for getting to the popular Guateque (typical rural festivity). A stay here means participating in the daily life and traditions of this mountain enclave.
Hikers will definitely want to summit Pico Turquino (1974 meters above sea level), Cuba’s highest point; this is a guided hike. To the south is the General Headquarters of La Plata (a National Monument), from where the guerillas organized battles against Fulgencio Batista’s army.
