What makes for a great day in Cienfuegos is a walk from the Centro Historico to the tip of the town. The sea isn’t the greatest by Punta Gorda but there are some nice restaurants and it’s ideal for people watching and taking in that unique Cienfuegos vibe.

First to Review

Walking along the Malecon of Cienfuegos or hopping on a bici taxi, you can reach Punta Gorda, once upon a time the area where the rich people of Cienfuegos used to live in what looked like mansions. Palacio Azul, which now is a hotel, is a typical example of 1920s architecture; Palacio del Valle, built in 1917, looks more like a Moroccan kasbah which currently is a luxury restaurant and hotel. Access is allowed to the terrace, from where you can enjoy a cocktail with an amazing view of the sunset.

Al final del Malecon se encuentra esta fina península, que los locales la llaman Punta Gorda. Aquí se pueden ver enormes casonas antiguas, la mayoría transformadas en restaurantes o hoteles. Es la zona mas pudiente de todo Cienfuegos y vale la pena llegar hasta el final de la península donde hay un pequeño parque que en su interior tiene un bar para tomarse un mojito mirando el mar.
