Playa Esmeralda, a place that you deserve
You are doing great! You are complying with the sanitary measures, you inform yourself, you stay at home, you take care of yourself and your family. Sometimes sad thoughts take over, but as the days go by you feel calm, motivated and vigorous again. You are awesome! You deserve to disconnect in a big way! But as we still have to wait a bit longer to leave our houses, we can imagine a walk through Eden instead.
The words “Playa Esmeralda” suggest paradise. This coastal strip, located in the north of Holguín, was named precisely because of the unique color of its waters, which range from the classic blue for a bright green. Crystalline, warm and calm all year round, these seawaters combine with fine and white sands; The beauty of the area is highlighted with the numerous coconut trees that offer shade and freshness. For lovers of official data, we inform you that Playa Esmeralda holds, for several consecutive years, the Certificate of Excellence granted by TripAdvisor.
And speaking of impressive sceneries, Bahía de Naranjo Natural Park awaits you with many adventures nearby. Around the cove, you can follow trails designed ecotourism and nature enthusiasts; while, in the center of the bay itself, an aquarium-dolphinarium will give you the opportunity to see the most diverse marine species and even take a bath with dolphins, in an ecological and safe environment for the whole family.
If you are going to spend several days in Playa Esmeralda and want to explore, a very interesting option is a visit to Cayo Saetía in the nearby bay of Nipe. This 42 km2 islet is reached after sailing approximately two hours on a catamaran, with a stop for snorkeling along the way. Once in the key, we recommend a rest on the beaches or signing up for safaris aboard trucks and jeeps, to admire exotic animals such as white-tailed deer, buffalo, ostriches, zebras, peacocks and antelopes.Sun, sea, amazing flora and fauna … doesn’t that sound tempting to you?And on an award trip to this spectacular beach, you could not miss the encounter with the history and roots of the destination that welcomes you. So, go ahead and take your friends, your partner or your family to Chorro de Maíta, an aboriginal archaeological site where the largest pre-Columbian cemetery in the Antilles is preserved; or to the Bariay National Monument Park, the place where Christopher Columbus landed for the first time on the island of Cuba (on October 28, 1492).
