The "Gardens of the Queen" Bucket List Adventure in Cuba.

“Cuba is the most beautiful land human eyes have ever seen.” – Christoper Columbus as he first discovered Cuba on October 27th, 1492. He was so impressed with a particularly healthy reef system in the south that he named it after the Queen, Jardines de la Reina or “Gardens of the Queen.”  BOOK NOW!

Jardines de la Reina National Park is one of the last MPA’s, (marine protected areas,) in the entire Caribbean and it is truly magical. Its healthy reef system is home to many species of sharks and its mangroves also provide an opportunity to snorkel with crocodiles.

John and Dan are very excited to explore these pristine waters with YOU!
