Isla Juventud To Do

Activities include scuba diving for everyone from beginner to professionals, sunning, swimming, seafaris, visits to beautiful Punta Frances Beach, excursions to other places in the area, trips to Nueva Gerona and to the black sand beaches on the northern coast, and visits to Havana and Cayo Largo.

The Isle of Youth, the second largest island in the Cuban archipelago, is famous for its citrus fruit, its marble quarries, the black-sand beaches on its northern coast and the excellent white-sand beaches on its southern coast. There are important artistic and handicrafts movements, fascinating stories about buried treasure and a large infrastructure of services.

The Punta del Este caves are one of the island's main attractions. One of them descibed as the "Sistine Chapel of the Caribbean Rupestrian Art"- contains more than 200 aboriginal pictographs.

The island also has a large ecological preserve, with thick forest of tropical trees. A high proportion of the flora (which includes carnivorous plants) is endemic. The fauna includes large colonies of parrots, iguanas and wild boars.

The former Model Prison-now a museum-is where several generations of Cuban revolutionaries were imprisoned. They included Fidel Castro and his comrades, after their attack on the Moncada Garrison in 1953. Lanier Swamp has a crocodile-breeding center.
