Cienfuegos Diving

Where is it? Cienfuegos is called the Pearl of the South, on Cuba’s central south shore. The city is consistently awarded and recognized for its efforts to maintain the clean environment of its waters. There is a beautiful bay and boardwalk showcased in the town.

Getting there: International flights are offered by some airlines directly into Cienfuegos. Alternatively, Havana or Varadero can be combined with land transfers or you may consider a rental car to have more opportunities for exploring in the afternoon.

Accommodations: Rancho Luna, Faro Luna

The diving: There are 30 sites identified in the area. From Faro Luna International Dive Center you can visit shipwrecks, coral formation barriers so tall that they sometimes reach the surface, and channels. The area is noted especially for the clarity of its waters, making it an ideal site for underwater photography.
