From Bucanero to La Gran Piedra

Will be staying at Bucanero the first week of April, and would really like to see The Big Rock! Could someone please tell me:

1. How we would get from the hotel to this area? I've watched a Youtube video of the journey taken on a scooter, and it seems like quite a ways away!

2. But if we do take scooters, how do you secure them while we're climbing the 452 steps?

3. And how far is the coffee plantation and gardens from La Gran Piedra?

I've learned so much about the Santiago area through the helpful people here on this forum! Thanks for everyone's help :)

hi there - i hope that you really enjoy my home away from home !! toours can be arranged through the tour rep at the resort or you can make arrangements for a taxi and guide for the day and they will take you there. there is also a great cuban restaurant near el Oasis called el Porvinir - it has a fresh water pool so take your bathing suits. Ask Julio or Yoel - part of the entertainment staff and they will be glad to help you. we are arriving on the 11th for 2 weeks - hope to see you there.

DDcuba - LOL, the thought of scootering sounds fun, but you're right, it looks like a long way on a rough road, and then to climb all those stairs! I think a taxi's the way to go :)

Scoots - I've checked El Porvinir out and it looks lovely! And I think that might be a scooterable distance!

Thanks for the advice!
