San José del Lago: The Myth of Nature

Cuba, which has a privileged location in the Caribbean, at the entrance of the Gulf of Mexico, is a tourist destination par excellence for those who love to spend their vacations in direct contact with the sunlight and the sea, to whom the Island offers hundreds of kilometers of excellent pristine beaches.

Traditional tourist offers are complemented by local treasures, since Cuba is also a stronghold for traditions, culture and, above all, nature.

Nature lovers can spend their vacations in San José del Lago, a sort of myth of nature located in central Cuba, 350 kilometers east of Havana and at a few-minute drive from the city of Sancti Spiritus, where they can enjoy moments of great privacy.

The attractions of the site are complemented the crystal-clear water of the lake, which provides freshness and charm to those who wish to enjoy the wonders of the exuberant environment and to escape from noisy cities.

The villa's rustic cabanas and 30 rooms are equipped with all modern amenities to meet the needs of guests, in addition to the services of a restaurant that serves dishes from Cuba and international cuisine, swimming pools, game halls, a nightclub and a gymnasium.

San José del Lago is also a good option to improve the quality of life, thanks to its thermal mineral-medicinal waters and traditional medicine treatments - acupuncture, acupressure and mud therapy - and advice from a psychologist.

The water has an average temperature of 33 degrees Celsius (91 degrees Fahrenheit) all year around, and its properties include being diuretic, and rapidly absorbed and eliminated by the body.

The medicinal properties of the water give guests effective alternatives to treat ailments that affect the nervous and the osteo-muscular systems, as well as the skin.

The villa of San José del Lago is also a starting point for many excursions, as part of a one-of-a-kind program for ecological tourism that includes trips to rivers, railroad rides, visits to protected areas and trekking.

Among the most popular activities are the excursions to the Jatibonico River and the Caguanes National Park. The latter has the additional attraction of the Buena Vista Bay and a dozen keys of calcic rocks inhabited by many endemic species of birds.

During the excursions to the river, vacationers can take a refreshing swim while surrounded by a beautiful landscape, and enjoy lunch in the countryside, in addition to learning about local legends.

They also learn about the history of Cuba's sugar industry and the sugar-producing process during a visit to a sugar factory and a ride on a train pulled by a 100-year-old locomotive.
