Morón is the second largest town in Ciego de Avila (province), Cuba. It is the nearest town to the tourist resorts on Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo.

Get in[edit]

The main highway from the Carretera Central in Ciego de Avila to Cayo Coco skirts the edge of the town.

There is a regular train service from Ciego de Avila, and occasional trains from further away. (For example, once a day Santa Clara to Nuevitas.)

Get around[edit]

Do[edit][add listing]

  • Visit the Laguna de Leche (Lake of Milk) - the largest natural lake in Cuba, lying on the northern edge of the town. At times the sediment in the water does make it appear milky. There are a number of bars on its shores (one is built on stilts above the lake). Be aware: on monday everything is closed down there. You can walk there within less then two hours or take a taxi from Moròn.
  • In Patria, on the eastern side of the town, the sugar mill has been converted to a museum. From there, a steam train that formerly hauled cane takes tourists to Rancho Palma.
  • Rancho Palma on the road running east of the town, is a country park. Nearby there is a crocodile farm.

The Hotel Morón, close to the centre of town, is part of the Islazul chain. (In spring 2006 it was reported as being used for Operacion Milagro - eye-operations for people from all over the Caribbean.)

There are many casas particulares in town.

One especially to recommend is La Casa de Carmen. It s very close to the bus/train station. if you leave the trainstation try to keep to your right and follow the road for aroud 100 meters after you passed the little parc. Here you are. A lovely old woman who will take care of you. Liek your own grany.
