    “Plaza San Juan de Dios worth the stop! ”
    One of the eight or nine principal plazas in this city! All well within a walking distance from each other, if you have a day or two. You can of course hire a bicycle taxi. You do not have to try very hard to find one. They will find you. If you visit during a rain storm, as I did,... More

    “Beautiful Mexican style square ”
    Camagüey is a total maze of Streets. There are few straight ones and it is complicated to find the right ones. Nonetheless a city walk is pleasant and should include this lovely square. To me it had a distinct Mexican feel to it and was totally different from the other squares in town.

    “Great place, mising animation ”
    Plaza San Juan de Dios is like going back in time, but although you will find several restaurants (1800 is the best among them) the animation is still missing at least during day time..

You don't have to look and wonder if these are shipped in from china, you can see the artist working in wood, leather, painting, .... We bought a leather mask... More

    “Lovely square in very carribean style. ”
    It is a very picturesque square in the heart of the old, colonial Camaguey. Very nice church, and colourful buildings around. For some reason I found this square very stylish and very carribean, it is my favourite Camaguey square. Another advantage: if you are hungry, you will find there really good restaurants (we recommend Restaurante 1800, just on the corner).... More
