  • Located within the natural park Cienaga de Zapata, UNESCO biosphere reserve, a large stretch of marshes and wetlands with unique flora and fauna. In Boca de Guama you take the motorboat crossing a part of the Park following the water canals, charming views, until you come to a small island where there is a reconstruction of an ancient taino village with huts and statues that tell the daily activities of the taino in early history, in some ways moving. Very touristic place with bars and souvenir shops, I'd say just for tourists, gaudy. In Boca de Guama you can also visit the crocodile farm, very interesting. Mixed emotions, see if you are in the area.

  • It is a cute place that accompanied by a guide is very interesting. To reach the place should take a boat, which is a little limited. This visit must be complemented with the crocodile farm which is on the side.

  • Right in the treasure Lake, rises the Taíno village, conceived the idea of Celia Sánchez Manduley, heroine of the Cuban revolution and the talent of Rita Longa, recognized Cuban sculptor. Sculptures to life-size site recreates the life of the inhabitants of the region at the time of the conquest of America by Spanish colonists. Hunting, games, cuisine and activities carried out by indigenous peoples are mixed with the lush vegetation of the site.
