Where to stay in Matanzas

Hostels and family-run guesthouses make up the bulk of accommodations in Matanzas. Despite the city's coastal location, few options offer views of the water, with most gathered around the central landmark, Parque de Liberdad. If you are craving a sea view, you can find a few options on the southern shore of the bay, a bit outside the center.
