Diving has become one of the most important choices for leisure in Cuba, according to experts.
Many tourism executives interviewed by Cubatravel said that there is a great demand up on this activity by people from all over the world, mainly Europeans.
Cuba, apart from having the ideal conditions for this sport, shows a sustainable development with respect to excursions related to nature, respectable plans of biodiversity and the environment.
As to its astonishing nature, there are adventure sites, such as the northern part of Camagüey, where it is possible to watch trainers feeding sharks, although there are also more conservative trips for newcomers.
Profesionals, for example, prefer the beauty of Jardines de la Reina in the southern coast, a truly magic place to which we can add other sites such as Cayo Largo, among many others.
With a annual rate of 100 thousand immersions of about 25 thousand divers from all over the world, Cuba intends to increase this kind of destinations.
Specialists added that the Island comprises more than 30 international diving institutions, 551 ideal sites for immersions, 150 certified guides and a special biodiversity, great for carrying out these activities.
The magic increases with the vast variety of coral reefs and sunken boats to enrich the underwater journey and a necessary protection with 10 hyperbaric chambers for possible accidents.
