What to do in Guardalavaca

Water sports are popular here, and most hotels offer entertainment, but otherwise things are very low key – perfect to get away from it all. Inland from Guardalavaca, the mountains and towns of Eastern Cuba are worth visiting, and the local state capital, Holguin, is an interesting, every-day Cuban town, a great place to get a slice of unhurried Cuban life.

Where to stay in

Playa Guardalavaca is the main resort area, with a small shopping centre and a handful of hotels. Playa Esmerelda, about 10 minutes away, is home to a few hotels offering good standards and little else, while Playa Pesquero is the newest area to be developed, with well-known hotel chains and a long stretch of beach. Most of the hotels in and around Guardalavaca offer an All Inclusive holiday, where all your meals and drinks are included, with many offering snacks, activities and entertainment too! Exact details vary from hotel to hotel, so check with us first.

Holiday ideas to Guardalavaca

Fly direct to Holguin and spend a week or two relaxing on the beaches of Guardalavaca, or combine the beaches with a few nights in Havana. With this option, start on the beach and finish in Havana, with flights from Gatwick. Alternatively, combine Guardalavaca with other areas of Cuba, notably Santiago plus Havana.

The beautiful beaches of Guardalavaca are the perfect place to relax. Set in a peaceful corner of Eastern Cuba, the three main beaches of the Guardalavaca region – Esmerelda, Pesquero and Guardalavaca itself – offer a good range of accommodation, long stretches of white sand and great opportunities to chill out. This area of Cuba is perfect for a beach-based holiday of pure relaxation.
