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.
