city in the province of Ciego de Ávila in Cuba
The main highway from the Carretera Central in Ciego de Avila to Cayo Coco skirts the edge of the town.
There is a regular train service from Ciego de Avila
. In addition, Morón is one of the stops along the Santa Clara to Nuevitas route.
The streets of Morón, like many cities in Cuba, are dominated by bici-taxis. These bike-rickshaw vehicles seat two passengers each, and the average Cuban pays no more than 25 CUP for any distance within the town. Operators will try to upsell you as a tourist; negotiate your price before getting on.
Gallo de Morón
- Visit the Laguna de Leche (Lake of Milk) - the largest natural lake in Cuba, lying on the northern edge of the town. At times the sediment in the water does make it appear milky. There are a number of bars on its shores, as well as a restaurant built on stilts on the lake. On Monday everything is closed down there. You can walk there within less then two hours or take a taxi from Morón.
- In the neighboring village of Patria, on the eastern side of the town, the sugar mill has been converted to a museum.
- Rancho Palma is on the road running east of the town towards Bolivia, and is a countryside park with animals and a traditional Cuban restaurant.
- Criadero de Cocodrilos is a bit further down the road towards Bolivia, past Rancho Palma. The property hosts a crocodile sanctuary as well as a bar.
