Hotel Encanto Camino de Hierro

Comfortably nestled on the Plaza de El Gallo (formerly Plaza de la Soledad), hotel Camino de Hierro (meaning Iron Road and referring to the subject railways) enjoys a privileged location in the historic center of Camaguey - declared a UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site in 2008.
 
The two-story building with wrap-around balconies and a cute sidewalk terrace hints at the magic hiding behind the colonial facade. An interior, tiled patio - de rigueur in colonial times - welcomes visitors into the hushed elegance that is the Camino de Hierro. Soft yellow walls contrast with the green wooden balconies and balustrades here; the addition of lush plants and orchids give it a tropical feel.
 
The stylish restaurant has a beamed ceiling and the bar is nicely restored with brick niches.
 
Hotel Encanto Camino de Hierro

This property carries the distinction of being an E-Hotel. The 'E' stands for charm (charm) and is used to designate those hotels in history-rich cities exhibiting the highest standards of preservation and which promote cultural tourism.
 
Despite the care and capital invested in its restoration, uncertainties remain about the building’s origin. The best guess is that the ground floor dates from the 18th century, while the first floor was added later.
 
Camagüey - originally named Santa María del Puerto del Príncipe - was the third city founded in Cuba; in 2014 it will celebrate its 500th anniversary. It’s an interesting and authentic city - as attractive for its rich culture as the lack of tourists. Spend a night in the boutique Camino de Hierro before driving the next morning to the northern beaches of Saint Lucia.
