Boasting the beauty of its surroundings, El Salton offers a simple but comfortable option to the tired visitors after a day exploring out in the mountain. Located in the middle of the Sierra Maestra, Cuba’s tallest mountain range, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and microclimate, the hotel has 22 air conditioned rooms, very picturesque, with wooden wall panels and terrazzo tile floors, all perched above the descending slope of a mountain river canyon. The furniture is not special as it opts to give a comfortable feel and the bathrooms show modern fixtures. Modest Spa services are also on offer. Birdsong can be heard all around, making it a popular place to hold birding parties. The services offered include guided tours, horseback rides, and birding trips. The open-air restaurant is nicely set overlooking a small natural cascade and a few delicious plates can be tasted thanks to the chef’s special recipes.
