Hotel Sierra Maestra: Venue of the 4th international EcoMateriales Conference

sierra_maestra_sm.jpgProviding a cozy and functional venue for the EcoMateriales Conferences has been one of the highlights of the past editions.
On this occasion it is a hotel situated in the heart of the host city Bayamo, the three star Hotel Sierra Maestra, that can accommodate all the participants and has three comfortable sitting rooms/lounges for the work sessions.

Through its proximity to the Plaza del Himno (Plaza of the Anthem), the house where Manuel de Cespedes (father of the homeland) was born, and the window of Luz Vazquez, the Hotel Sierra Maestra perennially invites discovery of memorable pages of national history. Its surroundings of rich cultural and traditional history is complementary to its installations from which one is able to approach the Cuban lifestyle and customs.

It has 116 air-conditioned rooms with telephone, TV and private bathrooms. It includes all the futures of a modern Hotel such as swimming pool, a boutique, three bars and a discothèque, as well as proximity to the National Park of the Sierra Maestra, the Comandancia de la Plata (an important site in the revolutionary struggle), Dos Rios (where Jose Marti, the national hero, died) and the Pico Turquino (the highest elevation of Cuba).
