Cuba holidays for Scuba Diving at Guanahacabibes
One of the must-see places for passionate scuba divers on Cuba holidays, the Maria la Gorda Scuba Diving International Centre in the Guanahacabibes peninsula is one of the world’s most exceptional diving sites. The supply to vessels is a priority right now for the Maria La Gorda Diving Centre, as they try to improve the tourist development of the Guanahacabibes peninsula, declared a Biosphere Reserve.
Considered to have the largest collection of black coral colonies in the Caribbean, this marine centre will soon be able to offer cabins once the investment process is completed, informed the director of the facility when talking about the promotion of Cuba holidays in this diving location.
Divers on Cuba holidays here will be able to witness the most impressive and colourful of marine life and black coral colonies, as well as gorgonian gardens and a rich marine fauna living among the reefs.
According to Commander Julio Camacho, Director of the Office for the Development of Guanahacabibes, this locality positioned at the entrance of the Gulf of Mexico is near yacht and sailboat routes that could land to receive supplies.
At present, Los Morros de Piedra, in the heart of this locality serves docking services, security custodians and protection of vessels, fuel supply, fresh water and electric energy, meaning that conditions are ready to expand the appeal of Cuba holidays here and broaden this modality of smokeless tourism in the western point of the Island, a site with exceptional natural values.
With the region boasting 20 wild natural beaches which may be used for tourism whilst also managing to be in harmony with provisions ruled for the Biosphere Reserve here, this is set to soon become a much sought-after Cuba holidays destination for those looking after enriching peace and quiet time with added beauty and pretty sights to visit.
Here tourists on Cuba holidays will have lots to do besides scuba diving. They may visit “El Cabo” a locality that is one of the largest routes of migratory birds of America and four of the seven turtle species in the planet live here.
Moreover, for explorers and adventure enthusiasts on Cuba holidays here, there are many underwater caves, crags and sea balconies, hiding magnificent beaches such as El Resguardo.
With evidence of nearly 200 shipwrecks along its coasts and many colonial galleons, legends of corsairs and pirates, Guanahacabibes remains as a legendary place of adventurous tales that have been formed throughout its colourful years. And under the glistening turquoise surface, it truly is an exceptional and breathtaking paradise under the sea.
