Yuri Reboredo, representative of the Italian company Avalon, present at the Moscow Dive Show 2021 expo, stated that ‘Visiting the Jardines de la Reina archipelago is like back in time.’
The event, which ends this Sunday in Moscow, is the largest in Russia and the countries of Eastern Europe for tourism specialized in aquatic and underwater activities.
Avalon has joint ventures with Cuba’s Marlin Marine and Nautical Company of Cuba for the commercialization of Jardines de la Reina as a tourist product, which includes fishing, diving and the observation of the marine flora and fauna in the archipelago.
Reboredo explained to Prensa Latina that his offer at the expo ‘is very popular, especially for its preservation, the number and variety of marine species, the well-preserved coral reef, and the native fauna of the place.’
He pointed out that this is one of the main diving areas in Cuba and the entire Caribbean, located just 58 kilometers off the coast, between the provinces of Ciego de Avila and Camagüey, where there is a national park that has stayed ‘very well protected for years.’
He stressed that the main attraction of the proposal, both for Russia and for other countries, is diving with sharks, due to the number of species that can be seen and the interaction that divers achieve with them.
The place is compared to the Galapagos Islands, known for being one of the most famous destinations in the world for observing a great diversity of animal and plant species.
