Fabulous beaches and relaxing countryside - the main ingredients of the formula which has made a holiday in Guardalavaca such a firm favourite among fans of the Caribbean - and us here at The Co-operative Travel!
In Guardalavaca you'll discover a peaceful, friendly resort at Cuba's eastern tip, blessed with beaches of fine white sand onto which lap cool, clear turquoise waters.
That stunning backdrop is a great location for a wide range of watersports including snorkelling and scuba diving. This is the way to get close to the 900-metre coral reef sited just off the shore of the main beach, while more adventurous divers shouldn't miss the chance to explore the caves and shipwrecks a little further out.
There's a wide choice of Guardalavaca all-inclusive holidays, and many hotels also lay on entertainment as part of your Guardalavaca package holiday. But the resort also has a small selection of friendly bars and restaurants. If you're here for the nighlife, the beachside disco is likely to be your 'party central'.
Careful regulation of development has resulted in Guardalavaca not encroaching too markedly on the surrounding countryside, which is best explored by bike, motorcycle or car. The town also hosts a regular market which is a 'must' stop to snap up a great selection of holiday souvenirs, including Cuba's finest exports - its rum and hand-rolled cigars.
Back inland, you can enjoy a ride behind a steam locomotive at Santa Lucia through the lush landscapes and sugar cane plantations, or explore the numerous coastal paths on horseback.
