Guardalavaca Travel Guide

by our Cuba expert Paul Baderman
Paul BadermanOn the north-facing coast towards the eastern end of Cuba, Guardalavaca is one of the more remote of the island’s ‘tropical paradise’ beach resorts. It’s also one of the smaller of these - ‘just’ 3km in length - but relatively uncrowded and with the obligatory gorgeously clear aquamarine water for diving/snorkelling or just lounging in or by. Catamaran trips can take you out dolphin watching - and there are ‘swimming with’ opportunities; there’s game fishing, good coral reefs a couple of hundred metres off-shore, horse riding along the beach or inland,. Steam train buffs can enjoy a trip chugging to the nearest town of Holguin. No, not a lot of nightlife, but good local seafood eating and … did we mention the silver-sand beaches, on which you can lie puzzling out why you’re in a resort called ‘Guard the Cow’.
