Maria La Gorda - International Diving Center Information


María la Gorda’s International Diving Center is located on the far West of Cuba; the Peninsula Guanahacabibes (declared Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1987), in the province Pinar del Río.

Although María la Gorda is glorified by divers, it is also a magnificent option for eco-tourism.

Maria la Gorda has 55 comfortable cabins, some of them directly at the beach, others landward surrounded by varied vegetation.

Only because of it sunsets the trip is worthwhile, but if you add the good kitchen, big and confortable rooms, the best snorkelling and the staff that makes you feel very good in the water and out of it, it is clear that this is one of the best destinations in the country. Greatings for all, and remember that Industriales team is not good. Long live to Pinar del Rio

This is the ideal place for rest, scuba diving and for getting away from everything we hate. The service, the food, the staff and professionalism of the scuba guides all were excellent. This is the second time I've gone there and it simply got better. I want to return soon.

Fue un exquisito placer estar hospedada en el Hotel María La Gorda. El paisaje inigualable, la comida de la mejor, el personal muy atento y profesional, el mar, la arena y los sunsets únicos!!! El lugar ideal para descansar y olvidarse del mundo y sus problemas! El que no bucea, también disfrutala.

What a spectacular location, great workers, fantastic sunsets, the ocean, the mojitos, the gatherings at the bar at night! The mosquitoes are awful however, but even so, me and my whole family cant wait to come back. Hugs to all the staff, we highly recommend this hotel.

Schön dort, wirklich tolle Unterwasserwelt und ein super Abendbuffet wie ich es sonst nicht in Kuba gefunden habe. Allerdings könnten die Taucheranzüge mal generalüberholt werden.

The setting is great, with a nice beach, cristal clear waters and wonderful sea bottoms right in front of the beach. Rich marine life even for snorkeling from the beach. Amazing locations for diving.

However, most issues depending on the Hotel organization are quite disappointing. Checkout at 12.00 and checkin at 16.00, but rooms may not be ready by that time. Friendly but inefficient staff, both at the reception desk and at the bar, restaurant and buffet. Chaotic organization regarding meals, as after paying the buffet at the reception desk you may arrive at the buffet room to find out that nearly all the food is finished. And so on...

However, if you are not too demanding with service, huts in the woods are nice and the place is great for diving and snorkeling.

Tip: do not forget to take strong insect repellent with you, as sandflies are terrible in the morning and evening!!

You have to calculate a very though ride to Maria del Gordo. Absolutely the worst road of the whole Cuba trip (Maria Del Gordo till Santa Clara).
But then it is exquisit. Nice beach, good snorkeling, good food, small hotel so quite tranquil. (they are building new rooms so next year it will be a litlle less tranquil.
Very nice staff. And lots of hummingbirds, crabs, and other small animals.

Arrival:
27 july 2011

Rooms:
spacious, good beds, large bathroom, nice outside deck.

Restaurants and Bars:
good cook!
