Beautiful and professional dive centre

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.

Day 14, At Sea

A travel blog entry by leemallender on Dec 18, 2014

We've started our north easterly course back towards Princess Cays and today was spent at Sea. Because we were at sea most of the day was spent out on the open deck around the pool and under the big screen. We were late up this morning, missing breakfast in the dining room as they stop serving at 9. Most unlike us, however breakfast is served until 11 up in the Horizon Court buffet. They have the same food but don't do the daily specialities, so we headed up there. Once up on deck ...

... as Cohiba, Monte Cristo and so on, this is the only one to farm the crop exclusively for its own brand, named after the grandson of the original founder, who bought the plantation in 1845. The brand was established in 1997, then only the third brand to have been created since the Revolution in 1959. The owners have gone further than any other vega ...

La Bajada

We stayed overnight twice in the tiny seaside town of La Bajada, home to about 25 families and 123 people (a villager told me when I asked, after a little thought and consultation). It's the point on the road where, when you reach it going southwest, you have come to the end of Cuba and have to decide whether to go left 14 km to Maria La Gorda or right 60 km to Cabo San Antonio. It’s also a very small military base and immigration checkpoint. On our first time there, ...

The Wild West

We fed ourselves well on the plentiful and good buffet breakfast at Hotel Maria La Gorda, and then pushed off for the farthest, westernmost point of Cuba, Cabo San Antonio, at the end of an enticing road that hugged the coastline along the southern edge of the peninsular Guanahacabibes National Park. We had psyched ourselves up to do the distance (74 km), which we had read could be exposed and wind-blown, as well as shadeless. ...

R & R at Maria La Gorda

A travel blog entry by cathonaventure on Feb 17, 2014

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 ...
