and meet all the needs for natural healthful enjoyment. The hotel
Las Yagrumas, next to the Ariguanabo river, the camping bases in
Santa Cruz, the beach of Jibacoa, where the hotel Breezes Jibacoa
and the Villa Trópico operate.

on aquatic tourism are offered. There, the visitor can receive the
necessary information for night-time diving and nautical motor sports.

favored by the presence of coral reefs.
The sight of the tourist can not be indifferent before the presence
of numerous beaches where oil extraction takes place in benefit
of the country's economy.
