This crack diving center attracts an interesting clientele, by no means all divers. The cabins and rooms are comfortable, and the restaurant's buffet fare ($$) improves vastly when someone catches a fresh pargo. Frank Cabrera and his dive school organize dives from the beginners' one-day "baptism" (48 cuc) to the five-day package (175 cuc) to the 20-day program (560 cuc), with equipment rental included. The hotel also serves as bar, disco, and general headquarters for
the entire peninsula. Permits for the Parque Nacional Península de Guanahacabibes must be obtained here before driving the two and a half hours out to Cuba's western tip.
