Nice area for a walk. Nice renovated buildings (especially the Old Wood houses). Nice place to have a coffee is the Club Cienfuegos.

Walkable from the centre of town. This a great bay with lovely views. Recommend watching the sun go down and then walking to one of the restaurants on the main road near the harbour.

This area of Cienfuegos is where many former mansions stand and was the playground of the aristocrats of long ago. Here you find many good restaurants villas and residences. It is a great place to stroll and explore.

We loved the evening walks after our dinner. The place has many locals here enjoying their fresh air and free evening time. There are many places for coffes and drinks.

A place you can stay, eat, relax and take in views. From the main centre of Cienfuegos is about a 45-60 minute walk down the Malecon to Punta Gorda. It's a nice walk by some impressive buildings. The park area is worth visiting in particular at sunset.

Very attractive lush but quiet zone. Ideal for relaxing away from the busier parts of Cienfuegos. Great views over the bay Stop for a little snack or cocktail. One place not mentioned on TA but well worth a visit is Restaurante Pelicano on Avenida 0 , between 35 & 37. A cut above normal Cuban bars, ask for Leslye. Not... More
