Hotel Gran Caribe Villa Tropico, more known as Cameleon Villa Jibacoa is among Cuba’s best-kept secrets. Villa Tropico is located on the secluded Arroyo Bermejo beach in Jibacoa, an hour’s drive from both Havana and Varadero. The hotel is built and run by local staff and offers a budget option to the bigger and more modern resort Memories Jibacoa.
Villa Tropico is very attractive to nature lovers, divers and those looking for a quiet getaway. Just 50 meters offshore there is a 3 Kilometres long reef, which can be reached swimming or in a pedal boat. Reef shoes and some snorkel gear are recommended to explore the underwater wonderland. The hotel has a diving centre offering several off-shore dives.
At Villa Tropico, all meals are simple and cooked in an home-made way at both a-la-carte and a buffet restaurant, so there is not much variety. Rooms are old old but very well kept and clean.
Hotel Villa Tropico has only recently re-opened to the international market and previously it was known as Cameleon Villa Jibacoa, Villa Tropico, Italian Club & Venta Club.
