The bed-and-breakfast is a comfortable and spacious room that has everything you need, including air-conditioning, hot and cold water, a large yard that sits directly on the ocean with a nice bay view, parking space, independent entrance, and breakfast service available for a nominal fee. The quietness of the area would allow you to rest peacefully after long busy days of touring.

Varadero airport is only a 15 minute drive.
