    Drive or walk down to Punta Gorda.

    Before you start I will say it is a good 4 kms walk from the centre, but if you have the time there are some lovely colonial buildings to see and the Paseo del Pradobumps into the Malecon along the edge of the bay. Down at the far end take a right onto the calle 35 and you'll find some old wooden plantation-type houses along there and then it follows on to a small park where you can have a drink or a bite to eat and sit in the gazebo looking out to Jaguaand the inlet into the Cienfuegos bay.

    The Cienfuegos area known as Punta Gorda is a narrow piece of land that juts faces the ocean. In the early 20th centuries this area of the city was hosted mainly aristocrats, this is the reason why now you find many beautiful old homes and art nouveau villas in Punta Gorda.
    Some of the homes are painted in pink, yellow and blue which give the area a unique look.
    The road runs along the ocean and is lined by palm trees.

    On the very tip of this stretch there is a miniature park - a great place to rest after that long march. There is a small outhouse and of course an open bar with booze and cigarettes.
