Camaguey Vacations

As one of the original villages founded by the Spaniards in Cuba, Camagüey played a important role as the urban center of a hinterland dedicated to raising cattle and growing sugar. Today it's the third-largest city in Cuba and the Camaguey Historic Center is a UNESCO site. The old city is a maze of narrow, short streets peppered with old churches. ... Read more

Said to be designed to confuse pillaging pirates, Camagüey's spaghetti street layout may be bewildering, but makes for a fun city to wander. Countless churches make for beautiful landmarks, while rooftop bars provide views over this pretty city, recognised with UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2008. Whilst strolling the cobbled streets, keep your eyes peeled for a series of inventive pieces of street art, faces including independence hero José Martí chiselled into decrepit stucco buildings.

Camagüey, in the Province of Camagüey, is a a real labyrinth. The typical effect that it has on people is a love or hate reaction. It surely is very unique in its ways, completely different from the rest of the country. Built in a medina style to keep away enemies who would easily get lost in it, visitors have a hard time finding their way around town, no matter how hard they study their maps. The city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008. There are many paintersì studios, and it is packed with art galleries. It is crowded and at times messy and it can be very hot.

Home to a large community of artists and a seemingly endless row of Colonial houses and winding streets, Cuba's third largest city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Camagüey, might just capture your heart. For art and architecture lovers, it's truly a paradise. There are countless art studios you can visit. For an authentic way to navigate the city, hop on the local bici taxis, painted by the remarkable artist Martha Jimenez. At the end of the day, enjoy dinner at Restaurante 1800 in Plaza San Juan de Dios, followed by dancing at Casa de la Trova.
