Stay 5 nights in the City, 5 nights at Gran Club and in between spend 4 nights living like a Cuban at:
Camp Los Cangilones – set in the most naturally beautiful area of Camaguey Province, the Sierra de Cubitas.
The star of the area is Rio Maximo. The river has cut through the limestone rock and created smooth rounded cavities and large natural pools perfect for swimming.
This camp is for Cubans and has of yet never received international guests. VivaCamaguey will be among the first. Los Cangilones is not a 5 star resort. It is very comfortable by Cuban standards but is still ‘rough.’ You will vacation like Cubans vacation.
Included in your stay is:
Four nights in your personal cabin, breakfast, lunch and dinner, two local tours on (explore the caves, and the spillway of Maximo dam, arriving either on horseback or bus) and an English speaking guide for the duration of your stay.
The property consists of, 13 cabins, bar, restaurant, cafe/snack bar, games room, horseback riding, disco and a tv/bar room with international channels. It is bicycle friendly and ideal for river swimming, hiking, bird watching and photography.
The Los Cangilones (the buckets) is 6km from a colony called Caidije. It was founded by Haitian fruit plantation workers. Here you can discover the customs, dances, rituals and religious expressions of voodoo, their cult, which has passed on from generation to generation.
