Scuba diving: In Cuba you are always diving under guidance. Your guides are well trained, speak English, respect the ecological marine systems and will ask the same of you. The operator is a certified PADI Advanced Open Water Diver and can help you with all your questions about diving in Cuba. At Maria la Gorda and Cabo San Antonia you are diving within the National Park of Guanahacabibes, and the fragile ecosystems are even more protected. These beach places are situated in the extreme west of Cuba, are quiet remote, quiet and usually only visited by enthusiastic divers or a few beachlovers. The impact on nature is therefore very minimal. Together with the diving locations at Isla de Juventud they belong to the best diving locations of Cuba and are regarded as the 4th best places of Latin America for diving. In the National Park of Guanahacabibes you can also make guided daywalks to see and experience the flora and fauna of the park with specialised nature guides, and visit some caves where the earliest habitants from the mainland created their living on Cuba a long time ago. On booking you receive a Cuba Manual from us in which we assist the individual traveler to have a perfect enjoyable holiday, that has a minimal impact on nature and has social benefits for the local people that travelers are involved with at their journey.
