Those who visit the fortress today have the chance to see the majestic pocket bay, with deep and tranquil waters, and exceptional conditions for sailing, fishing and water ports. Its 88 square kilometers of surface area make a large and comfortable aquatic track suitable for the international jetski competitions held there, these being the modern heirs of the regattas held in the early 1900s.
Cienfuegos cuisine is rich in seafood. One of its specialties is paella, a combination of fragances and flavors that are unforgettable. And anyone who stays in its modern and comfortable hotels, diner in its seaside restaurants, sails on its bay or wanders the city and its seafront drive will want to come back again and again.
