Cienfuegos offers all the services of a modern marina. It can be your perfect base for your sailing holiday. La Perla del Sur (Pearl of the South), this translation in English, describes the city entirely. Cienfuegos is an important trading port – more than any other commodity, sugar is exported from here, and imported oil – is second only to Havana. Nevertheless, the city retains the beauty of its unique location and rich architectural heritage, especially from the 19th century.
