"Most Beautiful Place in all the World..." Guardalavaca by Camping_Girl

Guardalavaca Travel Guide: 53 reviews and 179 photos

Incredible Beaches

The beaches at Guardalavaca are so beautiful. Christopher Columbus landed here in 1492 and declared it "the most beautiful place in all the world". I think he was right about that.

Incredible People

On my first visit to Guardalavaca, I was amazed by how incredibly warm and friendly the Cuban people are here. It was quite a contrast to Varadero, where the locals so often expect a hand-out from the tourists.

Everyone we met was so friendly and genuinely interested in chatting with us. I have many new friends, and I intend to return to this spot again and again. Next time I will take more photos of the people I meet. It was too hot in August to even think about lugging a camera around!

Pros and Cons
