Discover lush, tropical scenery

Guardalavaca holidays are set in lush tropical scenery where you can hear the palm trees gently whispering in the warm breeze.

Whispering palm trees

The dazzling resort of Guardalavaca lies approximately an hour away from Holguin airport. Its immaculate beaches are spectacular and here you’ll find inviting shallow turquoise waters enticing you away from the gorgeous white sands, making it perfect for a spot of scuba diving, sailing or even deep sea fishing.

If all this sounds a bit too energetic for your liking, then allow yourself to simply lay back and soak up the sun or be pampered by the first class hospitality in your chosen hotel, nearly all of which offer All Inclusive stays.
