A unique concept in overnight lodging, Los Caneyes was inspired by the villages of Cuba’s original indigenous inhabitants. The emphasis here is on natural materials, lots of shady green space, and country hospitality – all a few kilometers from Santa Clara.

Amid leafy trees, coconut palms and feathery ferns, Los Caneyes opened in 1966, long before the international tourism boom and demand for luxury leisure holidays. The architecture and design details were inspired by the Taíno, Cuba’s original indigenous inhabitants.
Everything at this 3-star complex – except the pool of course – references an indigenous village: the public areas, the construction of the cabins (guestrooms), and the wood-carved details and sculpture all draw on traditional, rustic styles. The pool, meanwhile, is centrally located and well-equipped with sun loungers and a bar. A cabaret/disco located in a separate, palm leaf-covered building. This complex also has a restaurant, snack bar, and small beauty salon and gym.
At just 2 km from Santa Clara’s city center, this country-style accommodation is a good option for a stopover between points east or west (or en route to Trinidad or Cienfuegos), or before heading to one of the keys on the northern coast. This is a great choice for families (kids love the place), but also for groups or individual explorers.

Santa Clara Libre
The Santa Clara Libre Hotel, in the very heart of Santa Clara, the provincial capital of Villa Clara, is the best place to stay if you wish to visit the Ernesto Che Guevara Mausoleum.
La Granjita (‘the little farm’) is a quiet, pastoral hotel, with rustic wooden cabins spread throughout a garden thick with palm trees. The setting here combines with country hospitality to provide a semblance of rural life, only minutes from Santa Clara’s city center.
Steeped in history, Santa Clara is obligatory for admirers of Che Guevara. Until recently, however, the city center had a lackluster accommodation selection. All that is history, however: the completely overhauled Hotel América now welcomes visitors in style.
