This elderly grand dame of a hotel is located right on the main pedestrian shopping street of Camaguey within walking distance of practically everything. Rooms tend to be medium to small, somewhat dark with narrow windows sometimes quite difficult to open. Streetside rooms are noisy and interior rooms darker but quieter after the evening entertainment closes down around 23 hrs. Bathrooms are adequate but amenities are sparse, so bring your own shampoo. The top floor restaurant serves good, economic buffet style meals, and there is a underused bar on the rooftop. The management presents free evening entertainment most nights. No security safes in the rooms. If you feel the need, there are individual safes at the front desk.

... us fourteen days, with seven days of driving between these two cities.
The countryside varies between lush green mountains to vast level plains with varied agriculture. We drive on four-lane expressways to narrow winding two-lane country roads. Traffic is sparse.
You’ll see scenery, beaches, villages and rural homes as seen from through the windows of our motor coach.
Enjoy your journey through ...
So, I left Trinidad for Camaguey to then find a transport to Santa Lucia where I want to dive with bull sharks Yeah ! I know it will be somehow complkicated to reach Santa Lucia as there are no Via Azul buses going there. There are some buses for Cubans working in the hotels, but these are in principle forbidden for tourist. There is always the possibility to take a cab, which would cost something around 45 cuc. ...
