Exploring Moron:

Municipality of Moron, known as the city of the Rooster. It is located to the north of the province of Ciego de Ávila in the central region of Cuba, under a cayería of vegetation and very beautiful beaches, infinitely escorted by the imposing Current of the Gulf. It’s the second most populated municipality of the province and in the cayería this nailed one of the biggest tourist poles of the country. It has patrimonial values that express a clear urban and territorial identity.


Founded in 1543, three centuries before provincial capital Ciego de Ávila, Morón is known island-wide as the Ciudad del Gallo (City of the Cockerel), for a ‘cocky’ bullying official in the colonial era who eventually got his comeuppance. The city has architecture to match its years, with more, better-preserved examples of those Ciego de Ávila column-flanked facades.

Museo Caonabo

In among the teeming sidewalks and peeling colonnades, this well-laid-out museum of history and archaeology is housed in Morón’s former bank, an impressive neoclassical building dating from 1919. There is a rooftop mirador (lookout) with a good view over town.

Parque Agramonte

Small park in the northern part of Morón with a small church and an old theater. The access road to Laguna de la Leche branches north from here.

Jardines del Rey

One of the most important economic lines of the municipality is tourism, since in the north, that is to say in the cayería, is the tourist destination “Jardines del Rey”, one of the main tourist regions of the country, where twelve hotels are exploited for the enjoyment of the international tourism, that come looking for fundamentally sun and beach.

Moron is s discovery land to discover, come with us and have a dram stay.
