Description of the Scuba-Diving Area
This scuba-diving area contains several excellent diving sites, and you can reach even the one that is farthest from the center in less than five minutes. There are grottoes, narrow channels and crevices which form labyrinths that are inhabited by many marine plants and animals and through which you swim to reach different parts of a wall. One of the main attractions is a pillar of coral which—because of its size, elegance and majesty—is called the Caribbean Lady. The area also contains six sunken ships, which make fantastic backgrounds for underwater photos. to be a part of world heritage. The city embraces one of the best bays in the world in terms of size, depth and safety, and it is an excellent locale for water sports, including international aquabike competitions.
The city's modest hotel infrastructure; many cultural, sports and entertainment options; and wide range of restaurants guarantee a pleasant stay in this province on Cuba's southern coast.

French émigrés from Bordeaux and Louisiana founded the settlement of Fernandina de Jagua on a large, calm bay on the Caribbean Sea on April 22, 1819. In 1830, when it was upgraded to a town, its name was changed to Cienfuegos, in honor of José Cienfuegos, the Governor-General of Cuba. Fifty years later, it was proclaimed a city and, for its beauty, was called "the pearl of the south." By the end of the 19th century, it had become the fourth most important city in the country.,
Considered the crowning jewel of Cuban architectural in the 19th century, Cienfuegos stands out for the perfect design of its streets and for the refinement and good taste of the buildings in the historic center of the city, which has been declared a national monument. When visiting, stop by the Casa del Fundador (the Founder's House); Nuestra Señora de la Purísima Concepción (Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception) Cathedral; the Tomás Terry Theater; the Ferrer Palace; and the José Martí Park, which contains the only arch of triumph in Cuba.,
Other attractions include the Prado Promenade, the Valle Palace, the museums of Naval and Provincial History, and the Reina (Queen's) Cemetery.,
Farther out from the center of the city, tour the Nuestra Señora de los Angeles de Jagua (Jagua for short) Fortress, the Tomás Acea Cemetery and the Botanical Gardens.,
In addition to these cultural and historic attractions, Cienfuegos has excellent facilities for scuba diving and other water sports, nature tourism and thermal baths.
