  • Walking around this plaza of the 19th century and see its buildings is quite an experience. There is a bit of everything but the facade of the Tomás Terry theater and the House of the founder is perhaps the most outstanding.

  • Beautiful small town center. One of the nicest towns in Cuba for sure. Being here is like time traveling to the 1950's
  • Historic French built city. Wonderful city square. Clean. People are so friendly. Cienfuegos is well with the drive!
  • More cement than park, but its a nice place to hangout and has plenty of restaurants and wifi access available (need to pay of course)
  • Very nice place to escape the crowd and relax. Wifi available and many restaurants around
  • A beautiful square with a number of buildings, statues, and monuments of significance in Cienfuegos. There are plenty of chairs for resting, if you can find one out of the sun. The WiFi is also strong in this one. A pedestrian street connects it with El Prado.
