The Puertosol El Colony International Scuba-Diving Center is on the Isia de la Juventud, Southwest of the Cuban mainland, 46 kilometers (29 miles) from Nueva Gerona, capital of that island municipality. Its enchantment steins both from its history -which is filled with legends of buried treasures- and from its beautiful sea beds.
The Siguanea Marina can fit you out for scuba diving in renowned sea depths, which many specialists consider one of the best in the world for scuba-diving. Tunnels, passages, grottoes, deep channels and underwater valleys form an incomparable submarine seascape inhabited by a great diversity of species.
Scuba-diving courses at all levels are offered, with internationally recognized certificates. An international underwater photography contest, Photosub, is held at this marina each year, upon clients’ request, with different specialties and prizes.
Punta Frances , a reserve of the biosphere, is near the Puertosol El Colony International Scuba-Diving Center. Its picturesque beaches are perfect, both for water sports and for simply enjoying Nature. Moreover, it is a special stopping-place for cruise ships.
