Puerto Padre

Although Las Tunas has just 70km of coastline – a small stretch compared with neighbouring provinces – there are still some pleasant spots. The attractive little seaside town of Puerto Padre, 56km northeast of Las Tunas, is a worthwhile diversion on the coastal road through the province. Here, a clutch of colonial buildings, including a church with a handsome spire, spreads along a spacious boulevard that heads down to a malecón.
