A good launchpad to Parque Nacional Desembarco del Granma, Niquero is a small fishing port and sugar town in the isolated southwest corner of Granma. It's dominated by the Roberto Ramírez Delgado sugar mill. Built in 1905 and nationalized in 1960, it is one of the few regional mills still in operation. Like many Granma settlements, Niquero is characterized by its distinctive clapboard houses.
Ostensibly, there isn't much to do in Niquero, but you can explore the town park, where there's a cinema, and visit a small museum. Look out for the monument commemorating the oft-forgotten victims of the Granma landing, who were hunted down and killed by Batista's troops in December 1956.
There are two Servi-Cupet petrol stations and a bank.
