In order to improve the infrastructure facilities that Cuba holidays offer holidaymakers at its most famous resort areas, the Cayo Coco Turiguano pathway is currently undergoing refurbishment improving access on the highway that links the key to mainland

Improved Cuba holidays at Cayo Coco's Turiguano's pathway
For the benefit of Cuba holidays in the area, a great impulse is being given to work on the restoration of the highway that connects the Cayo Coco key from the north area to the mainland province of Ciego de Ávila; the city to which the key belongs. Thanks to a national program of roads rehabilitation, this project will soon mean greater ease of access for tourists who want to get out of the keys and onto the mainland for better exploration and more adventurous trips during their Cuba holidays.
Main investor of the work and engineer Rubén Galván, informed local sources and Cuban press Prensa Latina that they have already refurbished the first kilometres of breakwaters, that is to say, the placement of protection rocks on both sides of the land bridge.
Galván explained that breakwaters are sections mostly weakened by the erosion process since they are highly exposed to the beating of the waves and the salt residues.
Meanwhile, more continues to be done to repair more damaged highways that seriously affect the Cuba holidays appeal for independent travellers who want to explore and drive on their own. Works advance to strengthen the basis and the beam structure that will increase the cargo capacity of the platforms, which is also deteriorated because of the aggressive natural agents involved.
As Galván went on to say, labour forces are speeding up the reconstruction works on the most damaged bridges.
"The investment, among other actions, includes the repair of 14 bridges, the construction of sidewalks and seven lighthouses that will be built in a five -years term", he asserted. "It also includes the placement of vertical traffic signs", - Galván explained.
The causeway is the only access by land to the popular tourist attraction of Jardines del Rey (King's Gardens) that so many visitors come to see during their Cuba holidays. However this road has been seriously damaged by weather phenomena such as the Hurricane Ike in 2008, which completely devastated the pipeline that supplies water to the famous tourist resort.
This important road is a key pathway that takes the traveller onto the best kept secrets of Cuba holidays in the area of Ciego de Avila. Stretching over 34 kilometres in length, 17 of which are over the sea, this road was the first of its kind built in Cuba and has been in use for over 20 years.
