Fodor's Expert Review Horizontes Villa Guamá
Laguna del Tesoro, , Matanzas Province, 43000, Cuba
Once a Castro bass-fishing refuge (Bohío 33 was El Comandante's), this odd hideaway is perched on 12 little islands in the Laguna del Tesoro. Scattered throughout the islands are circular cabins with good screens, air-conditioning, and adequate comforts—though the mosquitoes can be fierce. It's a 15-minute boat ride (CUC$15 round-trip per person) to headquarters, which is on stilts, as are all the cabins, connected by wood walkways over the lagoon. The lake is stocked with largemouth bass. This is an interesting place, but definitely only for fishermen or the adventurous.
- excellent value for the money
- adventurous locale
- cold water only
- vicious mosquitoes
- upkeep leaves much to be desired
