Porto Santo Hotel

Baracoa, Guantánamo


Porto Santo

The Porto Santo Hotel sits right on the cave nearby the spot where Christopher Columbus allegedly planted his first Cruz de la Parra, when arriving to this eastern part of Cuba. The complex benefits from its white-sands beach, surrounded by abundant vegetation and rocky cliffs. Adds also a beautiful swimming pool with fabulous views over the village, the Baracoa Bay and the massif mountains guarding the city. Rooms are nice, with high wooden ceilings and simple furniture. Likewise, the hotel’s proximity to Unesco’s World Biosphere Reserve Cuchillas del Toa makes it easy to organize excursions to the reserve, if you consider that the area has registered 129 bird species, and among them 15 are endemic.


The Porto Santo Hotel sits on a beautiful beach cove on the way to Baracoa local airport (Domestic Flights), Guantanamo province, 4 km away from the city.
