About the Abel Santamaria Airport Santa Clara

Santa Clara Abel-Santamaria-Airport

The Abel Santamaria airport (Aeropuerto Abel Santamaria) is a small-sized international airport located near the city of Santa Clara, the capital city of the Villa Clara province in Cuba.

It serves mainly the popular resort destination of Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Ensenachos and Cayo Las Brujas and also the city of Santa Clara in the central part of Cuba. It is named in honor of Abel Santamaria Cuadrado (1927-1953) who was an important player in the Cuban Revolutionary movement.

Its a small airport with limited facilities. In 2008 the airport was completely remodeled and expanded to meet the growing demand for the aforementioned islands, located in Cuba’s Jardines del Rey Archipelago allowing the airport to receive three times more passengers than previously. The airport is also base to Cuban Mig-23BN fighters from the 14th Tactical Regiment of the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces, which includes helipads for military helicopters.

The Santa Clara airport has just one terminal which handles international and domestic flights. The main terminal building is air-conditioned and non-smoking except in the habitual designated areas. Because there are no jet bridges, mobile staircases are used for embarking and disembarking passengers onto the tarmac in Santa Clara Airport.

Santa Clara Cell Phone Cubacel | Mobile Phone Santa Clara Cuba

Recharge Cubacel Santa Clara Cuba

Santa Clara Cuba Mobile phone network coverage is very good these days. Some areas of Santa Clara, especially on the road between Remedios and the city may offer limited coverage but overall it’s good. Unless you use a US mobile operator it’s more than likely that you will be able to use roaming in Santa Clara but this can be expensive. Staying connected in Cuba at a better rate will mean obtaining a Cuba SIM Card throughout your stay. Using cell phones in Cuba and Santa Clara is then much like anywhere else in the world where you can purchase Cubacel prepaid SIM card and use this anywhere in Cuba. You can purchase these prepaid Cuba SIM cards at the offices below and also recharge the phone with credit at these locations. Also, many hotels and stores in Santa Clara offer prepaid recharge cards should you need to do this on the go. If you have a credit card there are often Cubacel double recharge offers but to obtain these you will need to go on the internet as they are never available directly at Cubacel Offices in Santa Clara Cuba.

GPRS, Mobile Internet & 3G connections can also be used in Santa Clara Cuba. Cuba offers mobile internet to cell phone users with almost 100% national coverage but, this is more expensive than you are accustomed to and the network can be slower in Santa Clara Cuba than other countries.

If you decide to take your own mobile phone to Santa Clara Cuba, please be aware that it will need to be unlocked and operate on the 900 to 1800 MHz GSM frequency. Almost all mobile phones produced since 2005 are quad band and as such will work but, please check your owner manual to avoid disappointment.

The following CubaCEL offices in Santa Clara offer both Cuban SIM cards and mobile recharges

Hotel Mascotte Remedios Cuba

Remedios-Cuba Hotel E Mascotte

Hotel Mascotte is a renovated historic old dwelling where Cuba’s national hero José Martí once lived. As a no frills accommodation with warm hospitality Hotel Mascotte hits the spot for all guests. For those interested in architectural details the hotel is the classic Cuban structure and remains in excellent shape despite the passing of time. The rooms facing the square are great for watching people and soaking in the ambience but, especially in the evenings, a few neighboring bars can transmit a quite a bit of noise, nothing to complain about but worth noting if you prefer one of the quieter rooms on the other side.

Remedios Cuba Hotel Mascotte

Hotel Mascotte Remedios Villa Clara has been called a “gem in the heart of Cuba” and is truly a beauty; old world ambience, well-kept building with high ceilings, antique furniture and wooden windows that open overlooking the town square. The staff are absolutely delectable and could not do enough for us, the service was friendly and unobtrusive. If you are looking for a sense of the real Cuba then the Hotel Mascotte is highly recommend.

Remedios town holds, on December 24, a fireworks festival which has been going strong for over 300 years. If you are in Cuba over Christmas then this is must see event. During this event the city center is filled with mechanized floats, filled the canyons of fireworks, street vendors and carnival rides.

Over all the Hotel Mascotte is beautiful, with high ceilings and recently renovated, its spacious. Rooms have a minibar, large bathroom, and comfortable beds. TV offers an assortment of international channels also.

Breakfast is included in the room rate and is buffet style with an average assortment of breads, fruits and cereals. Eggs are available in any way you choose and are a highlight of the breakfast buffet.

Cuba Remedios Hotel Mascotte

Hotel Mascotte Villa Clara is a great place and well worth the trip. Guests should consider staying for about 3 days if the intention is simply to soak up the city and look around. This is not a hotel to spend your whole stay in Cuba at though. Perfect stopover type hotel and well worth a visit we enjoyed our time at Hotel Mascotte.
