  • The square in the center of Santiago de Cuba, interesting buildings around, such as the Cathedral, the House of velasquez and the town hall with balcony where Fidel Castro declare the revolution. The square and also meeting point of citizens, and hotspots for Internet users, being the hotel casa grande with hotspot.

  • This small, busy square can be regarded as the real heart of the city. It is where everyone (foreigners and locals) goes to chill out, listen to the municipal orchestra, hang out with both friends and total strangers, enjoy random musical acts from street musicians, art exhibitions, have a "maní tostado": local term for toast peanuts and finally, to take the pulse of the city by soaking up its vibrant Caribbean atmosphere.
  • Cespedes Park is the main square of town with a number of important buildings surrounding it. Lots of happenings on the square and surrounding areas.
  • Beautiful place, you can have internet here, do not forget to buy cards for internet access.
  • Interesting people and park with lots of good facilities around.
  • Lovely square, busy in the evening, wifi
