It seems that the island has been created for people who love the sea, sailing, fun parties, colorful music and dancing until the morning.

Almost the entire coast of Cuba and the surrounding islands can be navigated, with the exception of the area in the immediate vicinity of the “Bay of Pigs” or Playa Giron. Heading west from Cienfuegos you reach the archipelago of Los Canareos, a 90-kilometer stretch of small and medium-sized islands with hundreds of anchorages. It is worth visiting Cayo Largo with its beautiful beaches and Iguana Island – Cayo Iguana.
By heading east you will reach the largest marine reserve in the Caribbean, the Jardines de Reina (‘Queen’s Gardens’), a chain of 250 coral islands with a stunning array of marine life, fauna and flora.
