Hotel Gaviota El Castillo is located in the city of Baracoa - the first village founded in Cuba by the Spanish conquistadors - and is housed in the fortress of Seboruco de Santa Barbara, which was built by the Spaniards in colonial times. It is just a few km away from the city's national airport which handles the operations of small and middle size airplanes. The road access to the hotel is by itself an attraction for visitors, since it has to be done by La Farola, an ascending spiral road built during the first half of the 1960’s, with 11 hanging bridges whose maximum height is located at a place known as Altos de Cotilla (Cotilla Heights), 600 hundred meters above the sea level.

El Castillo has 34 rooms and offers very good service and the best food in Baracoa. Facilities include a nice bar from where you can enjoy the best view of the bay, Miel River and Anvil of Baracoa, symbol of the city, restaurant, a little shop and a picture-perfect swimming pool. 

Here you can book tours to visit the historic heart of the city, which has been declared a national monument; the fortresses of Matachin and La Punta; the fortified towers of Joa; fast-flowing Toa River; cemetery and many more. Hotel El Castillo is the top hotel in Baracoa to stay; excellent place to relax and enjoy nature tourism.
