|This small coastal town lies 36km north of Ciego de Avila. Its citizens, known as Moronians, have traditionally made their living from fishing although, with tourism beginning to blossom in the nearby resort of Cayo Coco, the town is looking optimistically towards a new, more lucrative future.
Close to the city on the northern coast is a strange lagoon called Laguna de la Leche, which is home to a variety of wildlife, most notably several thousand flamingos, it is a prime fishing lake and consequently is very popular with anglers, It is Cuba's largest natural reservoir and it was strategically important during Cuba's 1895 War of Independence. It is a lagoon milky-white from sodium carbonate deposits that seem to nourish snook and tarpon.
