Isla de la Juventud

Interesting
Although similar in appearance to the main island, Isla de la Juventud has idiosyncrasies specific to its tumultuous story, played out at the margins of Cuba's history. There are traces of Indian civilisation here, and pirates who left legends and treasure in their wake used it as a base for decades. Its enviable location in the Caribbean also makes it an ideal destination for scuba-diving and fishing.
