This lagoon is located on the way to Cayo Coco and is navigable across its 4.5 km² surface. It boasts beautiful natural canals, flanked by a dense forest of mangroves.

The city of Morón is the ideal place for short excursions, due to its proximity to the keys. Founded in the middle of the 18th century, it is the second largest city in the province of Ciego de Ávila. On entering the town you are met by an enormous cockerel, an artwork by the prestigious Cuban sculptress Rita Longa and a symbol of the region. One of its most remarkable buildings is its railway station, built at the beginning of the last century as the headquarters of the North Cuba Railway. Morón also has some remarkable archaeological treasures, currently on display in its museum.
Capital of the province of the same name, founded in 1840. The Parque Martí park forms the heart of the city's social life, around which stand major buildings such as the Teatro Principal theatre, the church of San Eugenio de la Palma, the Museum of Decorative Arts and the House of Culture. There are still some remains of one of the country's most important historical monuments, the Trocha (or defensive line) from Júcaro to Morón, built at the end of the 19th century to prevent the War of Independence from spreading into the West of Cuba.
