Diving in Jardines de la Reina
The reason Jardines de la Reina has been called the Galapagos of the Caribbean is due to its spectacular biodiversity. Jardines de la Reina is one of the world’s most beautiful natural ecosystems. This area has been aggressively protected by the Cuban government, sanctioning it as a national park, and only allowing 300 divers to visit each year. The world’s third longest barrier reef is located in this archipelago, and is made up of 150 miles of intermixed mangrove and coral, as well as incredible biodiversity. The mangroves serve as a nursery for many different fish species.
