  • Moron

    Moron | Province: Ciego de Avila

  • More about Moron destination
  • Description: Moron

    Also known as the City of the Rooster (Ciudad del Gallo), it is the closest settlement to the isles of the King’s Gardens (Jardines del Rey) and Turiguano, a Dutch settlement founded in the sixties decade of the XIX century, and the lagoon of La Redonda (45 square kilometres) where there is an international fishing centre. These are places the visitor must see in the province. It features the remains of the Trocha fortresses from Júcaro to Morón, which were used by the Spanish in order to divide the island during the War of Independence, trying to avoid the insurrection fighting for Cuba’s freedom spreading to the west. In the local museum, there is an exhibit of archaeological pieces found in 1947. Near the city is the famous Milk Lagoon (Laguna de la Leche) that harbours wild fauna. Its milk like colour is due to deposits of sodium carbonate.

  • Ciego de Avila
  • Moron it is located in the province of Ciego de Avila.

    In the 19th century, immigrants from Haití, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Barbados arrived to the province, bringing with the a vast amount of cultural curiosities, like the cricket from Baraguá, voodoo from Venezuela, country from Majagua or fireworks from Chambas. Thanks to all these peculiarities, these immigrants made Ciego de Ávila become one of the most interesting provinces of Cuba. But, it was not until 1975 when this province stopped being a passing-through area to become a place of settlement. This happened when they started to build ambitious tourist resorts in Coco Cay and Guillermo Cay.

    In the city of Ciego de Ávila you’ll be able to visit cultural sites like the Simón Reyes Provincial Museum or the Raúl Martínez Provincial Art Gallery, but also to get lost on its beautiful streets and visit its newly-made Boulevard. If we move to the area of Morón, the atmosphere changes, having the chance to do lots of things, most of them related to nature. Don’t miss visiting Leche Lagoon, La Redonda, Loma de Cunagua Hill or Turiguanó Island. In Turiguanó is located El Pueblo Holandés (The Dutch village), a small village with Dutch architecture in the heart of Cuba.

    But no doubt, the strong point of Ciego de Ávila is its hidden paradise. It fine-grained sand and turquoise waters beaches, surrounded by lush vegetation will surprise you. Coco Cay and Guillermo Cay house numerous beach and hotels, being one of the most demanded tourist destinations in the Caribbean.

    Ciego de Ávila is one of the provinces of Cuba, and was previously part of Camagüey Province. Its capital is Ciego de Ávila, which lies on the Carretera Central (central highway), and the second city is Morón, further north. The province was separated from Camagüey Province in 1975 by the government. Off the north coast of the province, some (cays) of the Jardines del Rey archipelago are being developed as tourist resorts, principally Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo. The south coast is characterised by mangroves. Between Morón and the north coast are several lakes, including the Laguna de Leche (the Lagoon of Milk, so called for its white appearance because of large lime deposits underwater) which is the largest natural lake in Cuba.
