Maria la Gorda is in Cuba. It is mostly synonymous with the diving camp that is situated there. The entire settlement consists of a hotel, diving centre, small shop, sandy beach and 2 restaurants. However, even if you are not a diver, it is a nice place to spend a night.

Get in

There is no public buses to this part of Cuba.

Get around


If you walk a few kilometers away from the camp, towards top of the peninsula, you see interesting landscape -- mangroove swamp and the sea are divided by wall of old shells/corals. Some big (50 cm) empty shells there.

This entire peninsula was recently run over by Hurricane Ivan and it will probably take some time to restore its natural beauty.





Hotel Maria la Gorda, CUC 66 for a room with 2 beds (hot water, TV, rich breakfast). This is the only hotel in entire area down from Guane.

Stay safe
