This two-storey, sugar-pink property occupying a colonial-era residence is probably the closest that Cuba gets to a boutique style hotel.

This two-storey, sugar-pink property occupying a colonial-era residence is probably the closest that Cuba gets to a boutique style hotel. Opened in late 2011, it is simply furnished, with just ten large rooms featuring good bathrooms overlooking a central patio. Befitting its name, which means 'railroad', the hotel is dotted with art featuring trains and railways. It has a pleasing location in the historical centre of Camaguey, just one block from the main square. A decent breakfast is served and the staff have frequently been praised by guests for their friendliness, helpful attitude and sunny disposition.

What our clients say

  • Elizabeth Luck is another gem! She was truly an asset and made us all feel very much at home. There are very few guides of her calibre.

    AF, Altrincham
  • Overall excellent. Cannot fault Paul or the guides in Santiago or Tierra.  We had a wonderful time. A truly memorable holiday. 

    RW, Malvern
  • "In our opinion this is the best hotel in the world. Every aspect was memorable but the Explora Patagonia stands out."

  • Highlights?: Too many to mention ! Great mix of culture, sights and experiences. Love the inclusion of a horse ride from The Singular in Patagonia.

  • "Totally Awesome. The forest and the guides are the stars. Their knowledge of the forest and their ability to spot the wildlife is second to none. Tithe huts are luxurious…

    SM, St. Neots
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Machu Pichu probably the best experience but the train journey there was amazing (and unexpectedly so).
