Cuba - Villa Clara Province (PDF Chapter)
This is the Villa Clara Province chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cuba guidebook.
This region is indelibly stamped with Che Guevara’s legacy. Yet it should also win your heart for hosting the nation’s most frenzied street party (Remedios), for the glimmering Escambray peaks and their adventure possibilities, and for the lolling white-sand strands off its northern coast.
- stay in a palatial casa particular while plugging into the electric nightlife at the legendary Club Mejunje and tracing the legend at the monument to Ernesto Che Guevara in Santa Clara
- hike the trails, bathe in the pools and soak up the solitude at Embalse Hanabanilla, a lovely lake surrounded by mountains
- people-watch from a cafe in the recently rejuvenated but, as yet, unspoiled colonial town of Remedios
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Santa Clara, Embalse Hanabanilla, Remedios, Cai-barién, Cayerías del Norte.
