Accommodations: The dive center (marina) has a small 10 room hotel, Villa Marinera (right at the marina) as well as the nearby all inclusive Sol Cayo Largo, Hotel Pelícano or Iberostar Playa Blanca properties. WoWCuba can facilitate accommodations in the property of your choice in conjunction with your dive package.
The Scuba Diving: 32 dive sites, barrier reef just 1 km offshore, vertical wall, grottoes, sunken ships. The dive center is the Cayo Largo del Sur International Dive Center.
