A long stretch of white sand beach that runs in from of three hotels. The slope into the water is very gentle and the water is usually calm and very clear.

We visited that beach on several occasions since 2015. Perfectly white sand and perfectly blue and warm ocean. Great for snorkeling. There are few places to get some food or buy some souvenirs.

Absolutely amazing weather, water temperature, incredible views. The resort we stayed at was very serene with no party vibe at all.

We did some incredible excursions - we actually significantly preferred all the local excursions to our trek to Holguín.

A fantastic place to stay if you’re looking for a budget friendly trip without the party scene of Veradaro.

Whether you want a mornings birdwatching around the local hotels or a overnight stay at Cuba's largest waterfall, Saito del Guayabo,Karlos is your man. His knowledge about the Cuban birdlife is superb and will endeavour to show you many endemic species. We used him on numerous occasions and we were never disappointed. He has a passion for wildlife photography too. Add going birdwatching in a classic car it's another tick to the list. Private message me for contact details or check out his facebook page Karlos Ross.

I was looking for a place to snorkel right off the beach. Stayed at Paradisus Rio de Oro and awesome snorkeling in different areas off that beach. As of 2019, you get to see lots of fishes (over 50 kinds) that I saw and if you can swim a bit, you will see beautiful corals (always swim in pairs for safety) as you do have to swim out quite a ways at times. Having a life jacket will make that safer and easier. Best snorkeling is done before noon usually as the water seems to be less wavy.

Stunning crystal white sands, turquoise waters. They say that the beaches are shared with the locals, and why not we do in england! it was no bother and didnt really notice. Everyone is so warm and friendly, some good snorkel spots here :)
