Fodor's Review

If you head farther east from Playa Boca Ciega, you'll come to the bustling town of Guanabo and its pretty golden-sand beach with calm clear waters. With its many bars, restaurants, shops, and horse and carriage–style taxis, Guanabo is a popular weekend getaway spot for local habaneros. This is also where you'll find the greatest concentration of casas particulares, which can often have better facilities than many of the area hotels. The beach has a relaxed vibe during the day, with inexpensive sail and pedal boats for rent, but it gets busier in the evenings with impromptu rum and dance parties. Amenities: food and drink; water sports. Best for: sunset; swimming.
