Guantanamo Bay & Caimanera
Guantanamo Bay is an exceptionly beautiful, natural and large subtropical bay surrounded by lush vegetation and ring of low mountains. To the West are the semi-desert "Los Cerros de los Monitongos" mountains. This is driest place in all of Cuba with a unique range of animal and plant species. To the North East are the wettest mountains and the largest rivers in all Cuba.
Caimanera is a fishing village and port of 10,600 people. Built on the West shore of the sheltered Guantanamo Bay, just North of the US naval base. The port ships chiefly salt, sugarcane and coffee. Residents of this remote, southeastern community of steaming, narrow streets and weathered wooden houses are the closest Cuban neighbours to the US military camp still filled with prisoners from the war on Afghanistan.

Offering excellent service and a historically unique location, it is the prefect setting for a memorable vacation in a truly warm Cuban carefree atmosphere, made all the better by the sheer irony of being so close to a culture so obsurdly opposite.
The hotel has been closed to foriegners for many (Bush) years until February 2009. Now (for the moment) it is open again to foreign tourists from Cuba-friendly countries. You must come in a group (7 to 40) with tour guide, and provide passport details of all visitors two weeks in advance.
