  • The main plaza for Cienfuegos. It's 1 of the better plazas in Cuba. I would highly recommended paying the $1 to go up the cool spiral staircase. You get fantastic views of the surrounding area.
  • Park is ok, area is vert nice
  • Mucho fuego. Muuuchoooooow!
  • Typical Cuban towns, cute square, surrounded by buildings all around. Under the trees people chatting looking for refreshment. The buildings are historic: the theater was headquarters of Castro and Afterward during the battle with government militias. It's worth wandering and talking to people.

  • very nice. They sell a wide variety of old cameras and second-hand books. Also you can enjoy coconut newly cut to combat the heat of Havana.
