Cuba / Accommodation

A guide to accommodation options in Baracoa

Where to stay in Baracoa

There are just a handful of small, simple hotels in Baracoa – El Castillo, Porto Santo, La Habanera, Hostal 1511 and Hostal Rio Miel – all of which are owned by the same, local company. As a result, there is little to choose between the properties in terms of overall standards while prices are near identical.

Recommending a hotel in Baracoa with any strength of feeling is therefore difficult although El Castillo probably gets the nod on account of its central location, stunning views and swimming pool. However, if mobility is an issue, the 80 odd steps that you’ll need to climb probably rule it out.

There are a number of decent quality, friendly casa particulars in Baracoa – most notably the excellent Villa Paradiso – and, with the limitations in the hotel scene, many visitors to Baracoa choose to go down this route.

Around 20 minutes’ drive from town, located in a beautiful, peaceful setting, is Villa Maguana, one of Cuba’s handful of small, uncommercial beach hotels.
