“A must if you are in Camaguey”
Review of Plaza del Carmen

Plaza del Carmen
Reviewed 14 January 2013

This is a lovely, open, sunny square, with some very nicely done life-sized sculptures of the knid that you are expected and want to interact with. For example you can sit on the empty chair and join the group of chatting ladies, or sit next to the man reading a newspaper.
the square also has the studio of the famous artist Martha Jimenez Perez. In the very mixed group we visited with, everyone found something to like, and most of us bought something.

It's a really nice place to relax for an hour or two and watch the world, or at least the local people, go by.

I visited Plaza del Carmen during the afternoon/evening time a few days after christmas 2012 and was really taken with the lovely atmosphere. it is a beautiful square with built in marble seating surrounded by impressive arquitectural gems which house restaurants, roadside cafes and places of interest .
The plaza is clearly the the main socializing spot for the local families and groups of friends (both young and young at heart).
this is really an enjoyable place to spend a couple hours relaxing in Camaguey. you will get a feel for cuban life.

This area of town has been nicely restored. The square is a quiet, pleasant place to come in the evening with the low light making the newly painted walls glow.

There are some statues here of the cuban people, like timeless fragments of the Cuban way of life.

Very quiet when we there, but that was in low season.
