Hotel Villa Trópico is a quiet small resort in Jibacoa, a beautiful beach on the north coast of Cuba that is only one hour drive from Havana or Varadero.
Surrounded by mountains and offering lovely views in a peaceful environment Hotel Villa Trópico is a great place to get away from it all (there’s still no Wi-Fi) while staying close to everything.
It is also an ideal resort in which to enjoy nature. There are several established hikes in the cliffs, and snorkeling is recommended since there are many fish and the 3 km-long reef is only 50 meters from the shore, reachable by pedal boat or swimming.
Villa Tropico is composed of one building and a group of bungalows featuring 154 rooms in total.
It is a bit dated and pretty simple, but very clean.
Gardens are nice and are well tended with many flowers and birds. Staff is friendly and the reviews about food are pretty good.
Tips: Bring one’s own snorkeling gear and aqua shoes.
