Havana.- The Brisas Sierra Mar-Los Galeones Hotel, in eastern Santiago de Cuba province, is a candidate for the ecological certificate for contributing to preserving the environment.
According to experts, the hotel has carried out projects to take maximum advantage from ecotourism, in addition to promoting options in which vacationers can learn about the cultural attractions and biodiversity of Cuba’s countryside.
In that regard, guests enjoy excursions, walks, treks, bird watching and other recreational activities, in which they can observe the region’s exuberant vegetation and autochthonous fauna.
Moreover, the hotel is near 25 diving sites, where vacationers can visit the remains of the Spanish fleet sunken off Santiago de Cuba in the 19th century.
Ecological food has been warmly welcomed by guests, thanks to a restaurant serving fresh vegetables cultivated with the use of organic fertilizers near the hotel.
At the beach, guests can taste delicious dishes from Cuban cuisine, including roasted pork, coffee and “guarapo” (sugarcane juice).
