Casa Guachinango

Landmark in Valle de los Ingenios

Three kilometers beyond the Manaca Iznaga, on the valley's inland road, is an old hacienda built by Don Mariano Borrell toward the end of the 18th century. The building now houses a restaurant. Río Ay is just below, and the surrounding landscape is truly wonderful. Horseback riding can be arranged.

To get to Casa Guachinango, take the paved road to the right, just beyond the second bridge you pass as you come from Manaca Iznaga.

The train stops right beside the house every morning. You can walk back to Iznaga from Guachinango along the railway line in less than an hour.
