Guardalavaca Overview

Guardalavaca is a small seaside town, located approximately 70km's from the Holguin Int'l Airport (HOG). The drive should take just under and hour.

There are no specific attractions in Guardalavaca other than the quiet oceanfront, rural setting, lovely white sand beach, palm trees and several popular all-inclusive resorts.

"Guardalavaca" literally translated from Spanish means, "Guard the cow". It is rumoured that the town takes its name from the bye-gone days of pirates and high-adventure, when the locals would cry out warnings to other townspeople to "Guard the cow!" when raiders were spotted coming ashore to loot and plunder the countryside.
