My Baracoa digs at a fort turned hotel…
So, this was my office during my stay at Baracoa. I stayed at the 3 star El Castillo Hotel, on the highest point of Baracoa, built in 1739 as a fort called El Castillo Seboruco.
El Castillo Hotel offers unparalleled views of the city from every angle, and great breezes in all the open areas (no central air; window air conditioning units in rooms).
The renovation into a hotel removed the cannons, but kept the original 94 steps from the street level to the entrance to the hotel.
I worked muscles I didn't know I had.
