Fodor's Review

Ten bohíos, simple, traditional cabins with thatch roofs, ceiling fans and private bathrooms are scattered around a field with a few shade trees. Five of the cabins have hot water and there are also two small, single rooms in the main building with air-conditioning. Most guests are up early since this is a good base camp for early-morning bird-watching or fishing expeditions in the nearby Parque Nacional Ciénaga de Zapata. Guests can also rent bikes to explore the countryside. The Cuban home cooking in the on-site restaurant ($) is also a boon in these parts. The frituras de yuca (fried yucca), tasajo (shredded beef), and the mango sauce with cheese are classics.
