On the way to Cayo Coco & Cayo Guillermo, Hotel Islazul La Casona, which means “the big house”, is a small and intimate detached villa surrounded by a veranda & a garden. The hotel offers not only accommodation, but a home for nature lovers, fishermen, curious travellers & adventurers who wish to escape the beaten track.
La Casona is located in the urban area of the city of Moron; from here you can visit the swamp, arrange fishing, boating (or kayaking) & discover its beautiful mangrove ecosystem.
La Casona's facilities include a swimming pool, a restaurant, a bar & a disco, which during the weekends gets very busy – if you are looking for a good night sleep, ear plugs are recommended.
This small coastal town lies 36km north of Ciego de Avila. Its citizens, known as Moronians, have traditionally made their living from fishing although, with tourism beginning to blossom in the nearby resort of Cayo Coco, the town is looking optimistically towards a new, more lucrative future.
Close to the city on the northern coast is a strange lagoon called Laguna de la Leche, which is home to a variety of wildlife, most notably several thousand flamingos, it is a prime fishing lake and consequently is very popular with anglers, It is Cuba's largest natural reservoir and it was strategically important during Cuba's 1895 War of Independence. It is a lagoon milky-white from sodium carbonate deposits that seem to nourish snook and tarpon.
