Scuba Diving Santiago de Cuba

Scuba diving Santiago de Cuba turtle

Between the lush greenery of the mountains and the intense blue of the sea rise tourist facilities of original architectural design and 4 diving centers Sigua, Daiquiri, Bucanero and Sierra Mar distributed over 100 kilometers of shores for those who love the Caribbean deep.

Besides their own specific attractions, these diving centers have something in common: the formation of large coral crags that communicate through tunnels and narrow channels, the refuge of big fish, crustaceans and mollusks, all covered by majestic gorgonians and sponges. The bottoms hold shipwrecks where you can personally feed enormous groupers. All sites are located on a narrow shelf, close to the diving centers.
