The Hotel Riviera
Your tour bus arrives at the place you will be staying in about 20 minutes. This first hotel, the Hotel Riviera, was created by members of the American Mafia during their period of investment in Cuba. At the time, it was the fanciest hotel on the island. Today, its neon sign still lights up and changes color at night.
