Havana.- Jardines del Rey, a fast-growing destination in Ciego de Avila’s northern keys, consolidated its options of nature tourism for foreign vacationers in 2003.

During the year, the El Bagá National Park received over 3,600 tourists, mainly from Canada, Great Britain, Germany and Italy.

The most popular options were the Guateque Campesino (countryside party) shows, which bring visitors closer to Cuban folklore in rural communities, and El Bagá at night, considered the most important cultural site in the region.

The facility, experts said, is proof of the possibilities of promoting tourism sustainable development without damaging the natural environment.
The natural park sits in an area of 700 hectares of forests with exceptional plant and animal values, including 90 percent of all species living in the region.

El Bagá is the first natural park of its kind in Cuba and the only one existing close to a beach area in the Caribbean.

    Very interesting day out, lots to see and experience, excellent guide and excellent singing entertainment! Good for children as you get to feed and hold the tree rat!  Take Banana’s and the camera.
