Boca de Guamá is the most important wetland in Cuba and in the entire Caribbean, located halfway between Jagüey Grande and the Bahía de Cochinos (Bay of Pigs). The name comes from the Taino chief Guamá, and it consists of several sites where to perform different activities. Among others, you can visit Villa Guamá, the Laguna del Tesoro Lagoon, the crocodile breeding farm or the small area with shops and restaurants, where you can taste the local cuisine.

It has a group of pre-colonial houses built on the Laguna del Tesoro. A system of buildings on wooden poles was developed because of the need to avoid the predators that inhabit the waters of the lagoon.

The main attraction is the boat trip through the channels between the mangroves and across the Laguna del Tesoro towards the recreation of a Taino village where nearly 100,000 hikers arrive every year. A series of 25 life-size sculptures of Taino natives engaged in hunting, fishing and other activities show us the indigenous way of life. The sculptures will bring you on a journey through the history of the area, made by the renowned Cuban sculptor Rita Longa.

The crocodile farm is one of the most interesting attractions of the visit. You can see more than 4,000 specimens of all ages and in groups by age and size in order to improve their quality of life.

Once the tour is over, there are a wide range of restaurants, snack bars and gift shops to complete your adventure to the accompaniment of the island's most popular music.
