  • We pay the 12 CUC per person thinking that we would be able to stroll the village (hotel) that appears in the photographs of the place advertising. Nothing else far from reality, what they have for tourists are a few statues that simulate what indigenous peoples (hunting, play etc) and 3 cabins did, in one of them there are 3 disguised people that when you spend paint you two streaks of mud on the face and proceed to ask you for tips. The rest: a couple of souvenir shops and a bar attached to the jetty. As for the beauty of the place, the hotel, when you proceed to go to him down the catwalk thinking that you'll see the real attraction, you topas with a ruined bridge, and if you continue in the same waiting for another bridge, watch this all completely abandoned. The worst thing is that the hotel operates and the guests are accommodated! (we saw as collecting them with a boat, because everything is abandoned and not they can move otherwise, a worker confirmed us all). It's a shame. The only thing pleasant is the ride by boat to reach the island in the lagoon, but does not deserve to pay the 12 CUC far. We feel cheated and we lost precious time in Cuba, we did not see the hour of that pick us the boat to go there as soon as possible.

  • They have created 4 huts, a bar and a shop and tell us so vivian formerly... dumb to thinking that we have fallen out of a cherry tree. A shame!

  • Located within the natural park Cienaga de Zapata, UNESCO biosphere reserve, a large stretch of marshes and wetlands with unique flora and fauna. In Boca de Guama you take the motorboat crossing a part of the Park following the water canals, charming views, until you come to a small island where there is a reconstruction of an ancient taino village with huts and statues that tell the daily activities of the taino in early history, in some ways moving. Very touristic place with bars and souvenir shops, I'd say just for tourists, gaudy. In Boca de Guama you can also visit the crocodile farm, very interesting. Mixed emotions, see if you are in the area.
