  • A beautiful central place that spendent but unfortunately not so much shadow. For this, you can enjoy the wonderful sights of the beautiful Cathedral of throughout Cuba. We were several times on the course and I stood each a few minutes staring at just the Cathedral. WiFi on the Plaza works not bad compared to other places. Overall beautiful and well maintained Center.

  • I really liked this lively place. A Symphony Orchestra played at 20: 00 Saturday and Sunday! It began with the national anthem, then various classical pieces! Very good level! The place is nice to stay and rest. However high noise levels and day and night much going on! Many smelly motorcycles and cars on the road. In our Cuba trip I found unfortunately stinkigste city Santiago de Cuba.

  • 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
