  • Very nice Park in the heart of Santiago. The Church, some historic buildings around the Park. Go have a drink at the hotel Casa Grande on the roof and you will have a great view of all sides of the city. Important notice. Attention to some Cubans who make you believe they are working in the hotel where you reside. This is a ploy to sell you fake rum Matusalem 15 years to 25 pesos. Also cigars. Beware, and do not trust them. Many Cubans ask pesos, and everywhere. Great, but it's difficult to walk alone, too many solicitations, to Havana.

  • Great spot to relax from the walk around. Always someone around selling internet cards if needed.
  • Great for people watching and internet access.
  • Very beautifull place in Santiago de Cuba. Casa Grande Hotel is nearby (go to cafeteria on 5th floor for magnificent view), lot of clubs and restaurant. One of few places with public internet - however widi is not free (about 3USD for an hour, valid 1 month). One of must-visit places in Santiago de Cuba.
  • If a city could have a heart, this is Santiago's one.
  • It's possible to get wifi here
