Nigel's Special Hotels
If you are looking for an attractive boutique hotel which is perfectly placed for enjoying central Matanzas, you will have a memorable time at Hotel Encanto Velasco.

A stay at Encanto Velasco is like stepping back in time with stunning colonial features like high, ornate ceilings, marble columns & a beautifully designed bar. The hotel was renovated in 2011 & provides a wonderful mix of colonial & neo-classical features, together with modern comforts. Fronting the main plaza of Matanzas, Velasco is only 50 yards from the famous Sauto theatre, one of Cuba’s national treasures. It is also a short walk from Matanzas Bay & numerous bars & restaurants.

The large atrium in the centre of Velasco’s restaurant gives it a comfortable airy feel, even on the hottest days, & the restaurant serves good quality food at reasonable price, though breakfast can be fairly basic. The bar at Velasco is particularly attractive with beautiful wooden features & great service from friendly staff. The coffee here is also not to be missed.

Velasco hotel has no lift so guests with mobility issues may not benefit from the stunning views afforded from top floor rooms. But, whatever your mobility, if you want stunning surroundings in an unbeatable location, you will not find anywhere better in Matanzas.

Guide to Matanzas City & Rio Canimar Park
Matanzas often called "the Athens of Cuba" and famous for its many bridges, interesting architecture and music is on the way to famous Varadero Beach. Birthplace of the Danzón, Matanzas is also a good place in which to hear a danzonete or rumba. A city on the sea, it has drawn on the rhythm of the waves, the vigor of its morning breeze and the stately calm of its rivers in creating its culture.



"The Hershey Train" is the only electric railway that has ever existed in Cuba, is operating since 1921 and travels from Casablanca Station in Havana to Matanzas. The trip is magical and a good way to get to and from Matanzas; and experience the natural beauty of Cuba and the Cubans.

Matanzas, behind a deep bay, it came into its own during the 19th century when it served as the country’s sugar capital. On the classic, leafy main square, Parque Libertad, the Pharmaceutical Museum is a wonderfully preserved chemist’s shop, also there are plenty of interesting buildings, monuments and museums to keep you occupied like Museo Historico Provincial, Teatro Sauto, Cathedral of San Carlos, Bellamar Caverns...



Performance art as part of the Matanzas City 2011 annual festival held in "Freedom Square" opposite the Hotel Velasco. Cuba hosts an annual season of Street Theatre, many performing companies from around the world enjoy the oportunity of working for the cubans in their own streets.
