The Gaviota Los Morros de Piedra Marina, in Cuba’s westernmost tip, has begun servicing the boats sailing in the region.
The facility provides such services as medical care and car rentals, and eight cabins will be completed soon to accommodate visitors who decide to stay overnight.
According to experts, these kinds of facilities provide new options to the thousands of boats sailing near Cuba’s coasts every year.
In addition to the Gaviota Los Morros de Piedra Marina, another 11 marinas operate on the Caribbean Island, including two in the Cuban capital, three in the coastal resort of Varadero and the rest in the central and western regions.
Just one kilometer away from the marina is Las Tumbas, which boasts one of the best-preserved dunes on the Cuban archipelago, and features anchors, cannons and other remains of ships sunken by corsairs and pirates who used to sail in the region centuries ago.
Another attraction is the Maria la Gorda Diving Center (with more than 50 rooms), an ideal place to enjoy the natural treasures that lay underwater.
