An hour¿s drive from both Havana and Varadero, the natural beauty here is the result of eons of Mother Nature¿s handiwork. The limestone-covered seabed offers good snorkeling and the forested rocky cliffs covered in pine and palm trees invite explorers. Here, nature¿s bounty abounds. Just 50 meters offshore is a 3-kilometer long reef, reached by swimming or in a pedal boat (included). Reef shoes are recommended and take some snorkel gear to explore the underwater wonderland. The hotel has a diving center offering several off-shore dives. The beachside hotel complex is backed by picturesque cliffs where guided hikes are possible on a network of established trails. The buffet restaurant offers straightforward homemade meals.
