Cuba - Cienfuegos

27 °C

After the beating city of Havana, Cinefuegos was a bit of a shock. It's pristinely clean streets and well preserved French buildings felt quite un-Cuban. Cinefuegos has a small town vibe with a gorgeous central plaza which houses a small Arc De Triumph, and is apparently Cuba's answer to Paris!

The town is situated at a bay with beaches and mountains nearby. We spent a day taking it easy and explored the giant peninsula, which the town spreads down, and discovered a couple of interesting old buildings, including the Palacio de Valle. We climbed to the top for a great view over the town and the bay. At the tip of the peninsula sits a small park, with a pergola where we sat and looked out into the calm bay surrounding us. One of the highlights was our charming Casa Particular, another beautiful old building, with a lovey room and en-suite, and a fabulous Cuban breaky (eggs, bread and fresh fruit).
