  • Avalon Scuba Diving Center is located in Granma
  • The territory limits to the north with the provinces of Las Tunas and Holguín; to the west with the Gulf of Guacanayabo; to the south with the Caribbean Sea, and to the east with Santiago de Cuba. It has more than 760 000 inhabitants in its 8 470 , Km2 of territorial extension.

    There are two airports: Sierra Maestra, located in Manzanillo for international operations, and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes, in Bayamo, for domestic flights. By road, the Central Highway links Granma with the other cities of the country. The Sierra Maestra majestic mountains, main mountainous group of Cuba, the intense blue colour of the Caribbean Sea and the fertile plains bathed by rivers coming from the high mountains present Granma as presenting a wide range of contrasts. "Desembarco del Granma" National Park is within the limits of this province, declared by UNESCO, as World Natural Site.

    The province is known as the Birthplace of Cuban Nationality and preserves a rich historical and cultural heritage. It was in this city where the National Anthem of Cuba was sung for the first time. In this region is indispensable to visit Desembarco del Granma National Park, with its very interesting natural phenomena and areas of exceptional beauty. There are also other places to be visited, such as La Demajagua Park, where on October 10th, 1868, the Cuban struggles for independence began; Manzanillo, a coastal city wrapped in an atmosphere of pirates and corsairs' legends, and Bayamo, provincial capital and National Monument.

    A stay at Marea del Portillo hotel, with a beach that draws attention for the dark colour of its sand, is ideal to discover the charms of Cayo Blanco, a place of suggestive sea bottoms; to enter the impressive system of marine terraces or to come closer to the natural and archaeological reservation El Guafe. Excursions to its mountainous system are one of the biggest attractiveness, for the visitor has the possibility to go into one of the more preserved, intimate, and better places of Cuban nature.

    “Scuba diving with sharks ”
    We spent several days diving from sea hotel Tortuga We were fortunate enough to have a double bed room which was very comfortable. The divings is outstanding, particularly if you are interested in sharks, and the dive guides were fabulous. Highly recommend this. Not a place to go f you do not scuba dive.

    “Sharks and Coral ”
    We spent a week on the small boat La Reina. Even though we had booked Caballones and been told we'd been upgraded to Tortuga, in the end it all worked out. La Reina is a small and basic converted fishing boat. it has 4 en-suite cabins with bunk beds sleeping up to 8 divers. There was only 5 on our... More

    “Diving in Jardines de la Riena, Cuba ”
    I organized a dive for 4 divers from the United States in October, 2013. I worked with Luisa from Avalon Diving, and even though Avalon is the only operator allowed access to Jardines de la Riena, I received first class service and support from Luisa and Avalon Diving. She was extremely helpful in making our arrangements for travel and lodging.... More

    “An Absolutely Fantastic Experience ”
    This trip was the trip of a lifetime and one of those experiences that is so cool that there isn't a bucket big enough for it to be included as one's "bucket list" item. I went with The Ocean Doctor (www.oceandoctor.com) which did an A+++ job on logistics and arrangements. Everything was handled first class from the meeting at Miami's... More

    “Scuba Cuba! ”
    I traveled legally to the Gardens with Ocean Doctor, a U.S. based non-profit that does marine conservation work in Cuba. They have a people-to-people license from the Department of Treasury. 6 days of their 11 day trip is spent on liveaboards in the Gardens. The water is warm, clear and full of marine life, including sharks and crocodiles, and, my... More

    I am sitting on the deck of the Tortuga in Jardines de la Reina as I write this review. Sadly our week here is soon coming to an end. We have enjoyed every moment of being at this magical place. The diving is spectacular. We are fairly new divers and were not sure what to expect on our first liveaboard... More
