Fishing and Sailing

Deep sea fishing in Cuba, made famous by Ernest Hemingway, is particularly good off the north-western coast, where catch will include swordfish, tuna, mackerel and marlin.There is also an abundance of stock inland, the best spots being Lake Zaza in Sancti Spiritus region and Lake Hanabanilla near Trinidad, particularly for bass fishing. Bonefish is also plentiful, especially off Cayo Largo, and tarpon in Treasure Lake situated in the Zapata province. Freshwater fishing enthusiasts are recommended to take their own rods and tackle. 

Casual watersports such as snorkelling, pedaloes, kayaks, introductory diving sessions and windsurfing are widely available at most resorts.
