|The only facility in the country standing 1,225 meters above sea level and among the ruins of ancient French coffee estates that flourished in the countryside in the 18th century. The ruins were designated World Cultural Heritage Sites by UNESCO. This pleasant mountain motel is a kind of paradise where time seems to have stood still. Giant ferns, humid forests and endemic birds abound here. The motel - associated with La Gran Piedra National Park and within the Baconao Natural Park Biosphere Reserve - takes its name from the huge rock weighing 63,000 tons that crowns the hill of the same name in the Sierra Maestra mountain range, east of Santiago de Cuba. This massive rock is considered the third biggest solid stone on the planet, according to the Guinness Book of Records. From the top of the rock, the landscape is impressive and on clear days, you can even see Jamaica's Blue Mountains.
