Remedios is a small, tranquil town on the site of an old Spanish settlement, which retains much of its colonial architecture.
Historic charms extend to a handful of boutique hotels housed in restored mansions. A sleepier option than some of the island’s vibrant cities, a stay in Remedios offers a pleasant contrast on a Cuba multi-centre or fly-drive holiday.
Take a stroll through the beautifully restored central square and stop for a bite in one of many tempting eateries. A better-kept secret than most of Cuba’s colonial gems, we recommend seeing Remedios whilst it’s still relatively ‘undiscovered’.
Set slightly inland, Remedios is just a few kilometres drive away from the 30-mile causeway that leads all the way to the beautiful beaches of Cayo Santa Maria, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
You could stop in the town for a night or two before moving on to relax at a beach resort.
