Santonio Los Morros, Cuba Check-in ?

Does anyone know if you can now checkin to Cuba at the northwest tip at Santonio (Los Morros)? Its not listed as a port of entry in Noonsite Cuba.

That seems correct.
As of October 2010, Maria La Gorda is no longer a port of entry.

OK thanks.

A followup question: can you get diesel fuel there?

Thanks Gord,

Finally a new Cuba Cruising Guide. Cheryl will make a fortune once Cuba opens up.

Hello Cruisers. Yes, you can get diesel at the dock in Los Morros. However, you must not be tied there in a northerly wind as the dock is untenable. The best and only anchorage is tucked into Cayo de la Lena roughly 3.5 nm east from the dock at Los Morros. Cheryl Barr

Phiggins, We found that diesel is available at about every marina, but you will need give advance notice and it arrives by truck in 55 gallon drums. You pay for all that you order whether you can take it all on board or not. There are times when no diesel is available no matter what, so you have to plan for all contingencies. Chuck

Thankyou Cheryl and Chuck for the information.

Reading about the snakes and crocodiles around that area was kind of scary because back in 2006 on my way to Mexico I stopped there and we went to the Fisherman's shack at the end of the bay mentioned in the other Cuba cruising guides. They were so happy to have company they prepared us a feast of fish and lobster, we supplied the rum. When one of them went to catch the lobster in the mangrove swamps around there, I went snorkeling with him to see how it was done. We spent a few hours diving for them. Guess all the crocodiles were full.

Judging from these threads on sailing to Cuba from the Keys, it appears the passage is above board. Am I missing something? Friends tell me just return back to the Bahamas first and check in there before returning to Keys.
