ACCOMMODATION IN JARDINES DE LA REINA - AVALON FLEET
Tourism in the Jardines de la Reina Archipelago is still so restricted by the marine reserve rules that it is possible to say that it almost doesn’t exist. The divers’ and fishermen’s accommodation can only be arranged in the AVALON fleet: luxury yachts AVALON I, AVALON II, small floating hotel Tortuga (7 rooms), and typical safari ships Halcon (6 cabins) and la Reina (4 cabins).
MY AVALON I
It is a luxury yacht 33m long with two engines DETROIT MOTORS 550 HP and eight luxury two/three-bed cabins. The guests may use a saloon, bar, dining hall and PC workplace - everything with a very luxury design and covered with oak wood. You can’t find a more comfortable ship in Cuba. More photos...
MY AVALON II
It is the latest acquisition of the Avalon fleet, a luxury yacht with ten spacious luxury two-bed cabins - each cabin has a sanitary facility, air-conditioning and 110/220V sockets. The guests may use a saloon, dining hall, whirlpool and bar - everything with a decent luxury design. Without doubt, it is another of the most luxury yachts in Cuba. More photos...

The filling of bottles is arranged with two Bauer compressors and one Brownie Nitrox compressor. More fotos...
Floating hotel TORTUGA
It is located in the centre of the archipelago in a protected bay, and it is anchored so well that it doesn’t move by a millimetre even during a strong storm. It has seven cabins, very luxury from the local point of view, out of which some are two-bedded, three cabins are three-bedded, and two cabins can be used as four-bedded. Each of them is air-conditioned with its own WC and bathroom. On the ground floor there is an air-conditioned dining hall and a very nice outdoor bar, and there are deck chairs for sunbathing on the roof. In addition, the guests may also use publicly available Wi-Fi (probably the only case in Cuba...) with satellite access. It serves most often for fishermen’s accommodation.More photos...
MY La REINA
It is a decent small diving ship (15m) on which 8 divers can be accommodated in four two-bed cabins (bunk beds). Its good manoeuvre characteristics predetermine it especially to diving cruises. Once its name was Explorador, it changed the name after total reconstruction after which each cabin has its own WC and shower. With the reliable engine VOLVO D9 500 HPX2 it reaches a speed of 10 knots. More photos...
It is a classic yacht with six cabins for 10-12 people. Two cabins share one bathroom and WC. Inside, there is a spacious saloon with DVD and television. It is mostly used for fishermen’s accommodation. More photos...
