About Hostal Gaviota Rio Miel
City Centre Hotels
If you are looking for a modern, comfortable hotel in Baracoa which offers great hospitality in tandem with fine views, you won’t find many better than Hostal Gaviota Rio Miel.

Hostal Rio Miel only opened in late 2013 & is an eco-friendly, solar powered hotel that ensures a ready supply of hot water at all times. The staff are especially helpful, doing all they can to ensure you enjoy Baracoa & the wider Guantanamo area. From arranging swimming at nearby hotels & advising on local attractions, to advice on wider places of interest such as Salto Fino, the highest waterfall in the Caribbean. Car parking is also available at the hotel.

Hostal Rio Miel has a great location on Baracoa’s promenade overlooking the ocean & you don’t even need an ocean-facing room to enjoy it, with the hotel’s lounge providing good views of the bustling Malecón. However there is no lift &, with rooms over three floors, this hotel may not suit guests with mobility problems.

Accommodation at Rio Miel is on a bed & breakfast basis, with hearty breakfasts served in the lobby bar, which also provides snacks throughout the day. The food & drink is relatively basic but of a good standard & the bar area is impressively clean.

You will know you have stumbled on a hidden gem the moment you arrive in the airy lounge & meet the wonderful smiling staff. Rio Miel is a charming, modern & very comfortable hotel in a great waterfront location which will leave a lasting impression from your visit to Baracoa.

Guide to Baracoa
Cuba's remote Baracoa really has it all, for plenty of awe-inspiring experiences. It has Cuba's biggest rivers, mystical jungle mountains, biodiverse tropical wildlife, hillside plantations of coffee & chocolate (cacao), secluded beaches, coral reefs, the longest history, ancient traditions, vibrant culture and general spellbinding charisma.

Baracoa City is situated on a bay close to the eastern tip of the island of Cuba where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean. Founded in 1512 by Diego Velazquez, Baracoa is Cuba's oldest European settlement. Things are pretty laid back in this town and the abundance of palm trees along this coast give it a South Pacific feel.

The fact that this was an important Spanish outpost is evidenced by the three impressive forts: Fuerte Matachin, now housing the museo municipal; Fuerte de la Punta, now refitted with a restaurant; and El Castillo de Seboruco, which is now a pleasant hotel.

On calle Antonio Maceo, you'll find people queuing for hot chocolate drinks in the baking tropical sun at the Casa del Chocolate, opposite is a lovely Casa de la Trova, holding rooftop performances and you can't forget to visit Plaza Independencia (it is the focal point for community life in the city), Yunque de Baracoa and The Stone Zoo, which comprises a multitude of stone animals.
