Charming Cienfuegos, Cuba

Image Posted on Updated on

Cienfuegos is 3+ hours east of Havana by “collectivo taxi” [roughly $US 30/person door-to-door].

It is a charming, small [150,000] French colonial town situated on the east end of a very large bay [the size of San Francisco Bay in California]. It is noted for its French style buildings. We enjoyed the sunsets on two successive evenings, and found 2 great restaurants. Our favourite was Paladar Ashe, whose owner of 22 years is the maître d’ and keeps a close eye on his very attentive staff. We were amazed when they came with a bottle of rum to stiffen our already potent Pina Colada, and then later when they offered a second serving of roast pork equal in size to the first serving…all at no additional cost! This is clearly NOT a capitalist county :}
