Marea del Portillo – Relaxation & Action by your own choice...
Marea del Portillo lies at the southwestern coast of eastern Cuba, about 100 km away from Manzanillo. A seaside stay in Marea del Portillo not only offers a dreamlike beach, but also the combination of sports and active trips. The hotel is located in the foothills of the tropical Sierra Maestra mountain range. Another thing worth experiencing here is a trip to Santiago de Cuba. If so desired, you can also get a peek into the vivid Cuban culture as there are natives living near the hotel.
The best opportunity is to fly from FRA to Holguin directly with an international Condor flight. However, you can also fly to Havana and then take a domestic flight to eastern Cuba.
From Havana there are daily domestic flights to Santiago de Cuba and/or Holguin. If you arrive on the island from an initial starting point inside of Cuba, you have to have an overnight stay in a hotel in Havana/Varadero before leaving for your destination and after coming back, due to aeronautical reasons.
From both Santiago de Cuba’s and Holguin’s airports, there will be a drive to Marea del Portillo which will take about 3-4 hours.
For your diving luggage, there will be a general excess baggage fee of 20-80 CUC for domestic flights in Cuba.
