Beautiful Diving

A travel blog entry by thewalkers


It wasn't easy getting to Maria La Gorda - but it was well worth it.  It's right at the western tip of Cuba and the last 40km or so is a single dirt track.  At the end of it is one hotel....and a dive shop.  It's reputed to be the best diving on the island but as our last experience on Cayo Guillermo wasn't fantastic, it didn't have …

Relaxing beach getaway

A travel blog entry by npleblanc


After the celebrations in Vinales we loaded back into the bus for the four hour trip to a remote beach area, known internationally for its diving and snorkeling. Watching the countryside pass by through the tour bus window, we saw more fields and houses and less roadside stores. We were moving into much more rural areas, and the roads reflected it …

Remote beach on the Caribbean Sea

A travel blog entry by tcorrea


So after a rushed afternoon and night in Viņales, we jumped back in our hired Hyundai and powered on to the most remote hotel on the Cuban mainland, Maria la Gorda. Itīs basically a place where snorkellers and scuba divers reign supreme, where the beaches are deserted and the underwater life is spectacular. It was our first sighting of the …

R & R at Maria La Gorda

A travel blog entry by cathonaventure


Maria La Gorda is a place at almost the farthest western reach of Cuba named for a Fat Mary. Although cattle were grazing all over the hotel grounds, there didn't seem to be much else there aside from the hotel with a dive centre. We got there by 11 a.m., keen to start our mini-vacation from the road and from casa particulars. We couldn’t check in that early, so we easily whiled away three hours at the beachside café, drinking cappuccinos and Bucaneros. We met some ...

    There were three types of accommodation on offer; wooden bungalows set back in the trees, 2-storey concrete buildings on the beach and new 3-storey concrete blocks just behind the beach blocks (all priced the same). We opted for the latter for the massive shower and room, large balcony and good air conditioning. We would have given a top rating, but the all-inclusive food was just okay.
