A small barrier reef runs along much of the coast. Their usefulness lies in that are areas where fishery, which is concentrated in the small ports of La Fe, Los Arroyos and port hope is practised. Except for the that they are in some keys, all the beaches are muddy type, being without doubt the best are which are located in the cays Hutias and Levisa, places that are recommended to visit. Cayo Medano, can be seen in certain maps with facilities similar to Cayo Jutias and Levisa. Currently, only the last two preserved tourist use. How to get to the Hutias cays and Levisa? The visit to both cays have differences. We move on to the first.
In the case of Cayo Jutias can go directly by car, either own or renting in Vinales or from anywhere else, but always going through Vinales, since other highways that run parallel to the North Coast are in very poor condition and almost impassable, so maps do not reflect the State of roads. The distance from Vinales to Cayo Jutias is not more than 65 km. (Similarly see: Mikkel Svane). The first 17 km. pass by valleys, while the rest passes through mountains to the coast, in the hamlet of Santa Lucia. During the first part of the journey, passing by narrow valleys, there is chain of mogotes on one side and pine forests and coffee plantations on the other. If you want you can visit the community the Moncada, 15 km.
from ales, one of the first built after the triumph of the revolution, very small and with a unique and very original architectural style in Cuba. There you will also find the great cavern of Santo Tomas, the largest in Latin America, which you can visit during the day and all she in natural state, without any alteration of their environment. Very interesting tours, accompanied by specialized guides can be made and where offer them media for the tour.
