What to do in Manzanillo de Cuba

Manzanillo de Cuba is located in the beautiful Sierra Maestra mountain range. This little-known destination is quite charming and is ideal for those seeking tranquility and a change of scenery.


Black sand beach

Although there are not that many resorts in Manzanillo de Cuba, we recommend a visit to Marea del Portillo, a charming hotel that has an access to the magnificent black sand beach. You will fall in love with the surprising view.


Desembarco del Granma National Park

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999, this park offers nature lovers a perfect mix of fauna and abundant vegetation, with over 200 species of plants. In addition to its many cliffs and its breathtaking view of the sea, the Desembarco del Granma National Park also has an array of caves, including Hoyo de Marlotte, with its 77 meters depth and 52 meters width.


Bayamo

Dating back to 1513, the capital of Granma province is infamous for its history, both for the slave trade and for the attacks that were carried out by pirates and the English. Today, a visit allows you to discover the history of this city located in the heart of the mountains. The pretty city center, very little coveted by tourists, allows visitors to blend with the real Cuban life. A must!

Official language

Spanish is the official language in Cuba. However, since this is a very popular destination for Canadians, it is not uncommon for people to exchange a few words in French or English with all-inclusive hotel staff.

Voltage

Voltage is 220V in most hotels. If your devices only work on 110V, be sure to bring a converter.

Electrical outlets are generally able to accommodate flat plugs (such as those used in North America) and round pin plugs (such as those used in Europe). On the other hand, remember that some older hotels can only take round pin plugs. Please remember to bring a power adapter and a converter.
