Rancho Luna, the underestimated beach
In the South of Cuba, there is a town called Cienfuegos with a small but stunning beach called Rancho Luna. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Cuba and the only one founded by the French. It is the perfect town to relax and to have a good time. There will be a separate post on Cienfuegos soon.
Cienfuegos is also special because of all the different excursions you can do outside the city, like visiting he Nicho Waterfalls or Trinidad. Or the Beach Rancho Luna.
Rancho Luna is a rather small beach and not as famous as beaches like Varadero, Guardalavaca, María la Gorda or Playa Ancón, but it has his advantages.
It is about 20 Minutes away from the City of Cienfuegos and a Taxi there costs about 10$.
You also can rent a place near the beach in a really quiet and a beautiful place to relax.
Rancho Luna might not be as impressive as other beaches in Cuba, but it still is beautiful and less crowded, even in summer.
There are coconut trees all around and a place to get drinks and snacks.
Nearby there is a diving school and an aquarium with a dolphin show.
My special tip: stick around for sundown, you won’t be disappointed
