In this itinerary is the Pio – Cuá, representative restaurant of a typical specialty of the area, and later La Boca, where we will embark in some fast boats (the travelship last about 20 min) that took us to the taino village through the almost mythical “Laguna del Tesoro”, where can still be distinguished some manatees, a cuban specie almost in extinction. In the vicinity of The Mouth is a hatchery of crocodiles which we will visit.
Guamá, with their taino village, constitutes a special show; with their cabins and their little bridges on the Lagoon; there you will be able to relax in the observation of 32 sculptures, it is a work of the famous cuban artist Rita Longa and they represent habitat forms, feeding and customs of our first residents’.
