Get in

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

See

Do

  • 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).
  • In Patria, on the eastern side of the town, the sugar mill has been converted to a museum. From there, a steam train 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.
