Central Cuba Travel Guide

Boat and Ferry Travel

Thousands of people visit Cuba on private boats every year, and there are a number of marinas in the central provinces with mooring space, electricity, water, diesel, and other services. The largest operation is Puertosol, with marinas in Cienfuegos, Trinidad, and Cayo Guillermo. Marlin is number two, with marinas in Cayo Coco and Playa Santa Lucía. A rusty ferry crosses the bay from Cienfuegos to the Castillo de Jagua daily at 8, 11, 3, and 5:20. The trip takes about 40 minutes and costs 1 cuc.
