Villa Pinares del Mayari: Log cabins in Cuba
This is a way out of the way hotel, 600 metres up a mountain, 30 kms south of Mayari. It can also be approached from the south. An ex-eco-research facility, it has plenty of room in log cabins that are very clean and comfortable, and is a good place to stop the night after walking in the mountains.
My guess is that it can be crowded if a bus pulls in, otherwise, it is only visited by a few off-the-road travellers looking for Cuba's rainforest. It has a large restaurant and a bar, and a pool with no chlorine, so it is shared with local frogs.
The log cabins are unusual for Cuba and as they are set right in the forest, hiking first thing in the morning is a real pleasure. Great place to get close to nature. Watch for fern trees and orchids and a wide variety of birds.
A pretty laid back accomodation, all in all.
