This small coastal town lies 36km north of Ciego de Avila. Its citizens have traditionally made their living from fishing although, with tourism beginning to blossom in the nearby resort of Cayo Coco, the town is looking optimistically towards a new and more lucrative future. Close to the city on the northern coast is a strange lagoon called Laguna de la Leche, which is home to a variety of wildlife, most notably several thousand flamingos, it is a prime fishing lake and consequently is very popular with anglers, It is Cuba's largest natural reservoir and it was strategically important during Cuba's 1895 War of Independence.

Best time to visit
December through April, is also the most popular time. The weather is at its coolest and driest during these months, yet it\'s still far warmer than North America and Europe.
In the spring and fall, it\'s off-seasons and this can mean fewer hotel amenities; some hotels may be closed entirely for repairs. There are, however, benefits to traveling in the off-seasons: lack of crowds and prices that tumble by up to 25%.
