Matanzas Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 94 photos
A strange name for a city: Matanzas means killing,
the origine of this name is not quite sure.
Nested in the Guamina bay this city was for a long time the sugar capital
of the island and number one sugar harbour in the world.
The famous cuban danse "danzon" was created in matanzas.
Between two main bridges "Calixto Garcia" and "Concordia", the city center architecture is the proof of this former quite rich city.
- Pros:friendly population
- Cons:too closeby varadero and mass tourism
- In a nutshell:river city along the bay
Observing the constant activity on the Matanzas bridges more travel advice
