Default Banner.jpg

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]

See[edit][add listing]

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.
