Those with modern culture in mind will enjoy a tour of the town’s famous Bacardi Rum distillery.

The spacious accommodations feature new Revive bedding, flat screen HDTVs with iPod compatibility and wireless Internet. Another treat: most rooms come with furnished balconies that take in views of the Atlantic Ocean.
