Cuba's tourist sector, characterized by its sun and beach offers, is complemented by a wide range of attractions in several provinces of the country, each of which gives a peculiar touch to the so-called smokeless industry.
That is the case of eastern Camagüey province, where the Florida Hotel, located in the town of the same name, is an excellent choice for leisure and recreation, including guests' participation in specialized tourism programs.
The establishment offers 174 rooms equipped with all modern amenities demanded by today's tourism, including air conditioning, satellite TV and safe deposit boxes.
During their stay at the Florida Hotel, guests can enjoy the services provided at the swimming pool, the cafeteria and the bar, as well as recreational areas such as a nightclub, entertainment activities and a game hall.
Gastronomic offers are provided at El Caney thatched-roof restaurant and La Volantica Restaurant, where guests can taste many dishes from the local cuisine, made by excellent chefs.
In addition, they can eat delicious salads and drink refreshing juice made of season vegetables and fruits.
Staying at the Florida Hotel is a peaceful and gratifying experience because, although the establishment is close to the town of Florida, it is surrounded by a calm atmosphere characterized by beautiful gardens that provide the hotel with natural beauty.
The Florida Hotel is an excellent place for hunting and fishing enthusiasts, since it is close to one of the country's best game and fishing preserves.
Moreover, the establishment is 38 kilometers away from the city of Camagüey, the capital of the province of the same name, where foreign tourists can arrive by plane through the local international airport.
The hotel benefits from its proximity to the former town of Santa María del Puerto del Príncipe, which was originally founded as a coastal village and has a centuries-old history. The city is characterized by peculiar elements, such as the famous "tinajones".
Those large earthenware jars, used centuries ago to store rainwater for human consumption, currently decorate gardens and parks, giving the city a touch of distinction that is reminiscent of its Spanish colonial past.
Camagüey has one-tower temples, façades with pilasters and iron-wrought windows, and houses with inner portals and red-tile roofs, which characterize its sober but eye-catching architecture and labyrinthine urban design.
The province offers 125 kilometers of excellent beaches to vacationers interested in combining history and leisure, and enjoying ecotourism in the mountains in Sierra de Cubitas.
