What you'll do

On board my ship called Mirtha as my mother, we will depart from the meeting point passing through Cayo Carenas, the only islet located in the middle of the bay of Cienfuegos, which only has access by boat and where about twenty people live. It was visited in the 16th century by pirates such as Francis Drake, Henry Morgan and other bandits who used the port to stock up on products and loot nearby villages. Here you can bathe in its wonderful and quiet beach. Then we will pass along the coast of a fishing village called El Perché, where you can appreciate the culture of the people who live there, continuing to the Castle of Jagua, where we will find our main destination: the Fortress Museum Our Lady of the Angels of Jagua , built in 1745 to protect the bay from pirates and privateers, the most important Spanish military fortification in central Cuba, full of stories and legends that you will know inside. Then we will have lunch at El Pescador Restaurant, located a few meters from the fortress, where you can enjoy an excellent meal with seafood, fish or other meat depending on the season of the year, then we return to the city.
