Cuba Port of Entry - Cabo San Antonio

I heard that you can not check in or out of Cuba at Las Morros (Cabo San Antonio), I find this very hard to believe. Does anyone know?

Re: Cuba Port of entry Cabo San Antonio

I know for fact that Maria La Gorda is not an entry anymore. We went to Los Morros (West side of Cuba aka Cabo San Antonio) which last year was a port of entry, but is not listed on your list. Maria was listed but we were there 2 months ago and is no longer. The info we received at Los Morros is that they were out of tourist cards so we checked in a Hemmingway.
Hemmingway officials said it was no longer acceptable to check in at Los Morros, but I find that very hard to believe as we were there a few days before and they were simply out of forms. What is the truth on this, not sure?

Re: Cuba Port of entry Cabo San Antonio

Try asking the source. Cuba has many embassies including one in your home port:

Cuban Embassy in Panama City, Panama
Embassy of Cuba in Panama City, Panama
Ave. Cuba y Calle Ecuador
Bellavista, Panama City
Panama

Re: Cuba Port of Entry - Cabo San Antonio

I sailed around Cuba, anticlockwise from eastern tip , north coast, Havana, Cabo Antonio, south coast all the way to Cienfuego, and away to Belize.

Upon arrival , we learned that Baracoa was no longer a port of entry. So we proceeded westward under yellow flag, befriending the pleasant locals when at anchor, to Puerto Vita.
Entrance procedures were lengthy but pleasant as officials were extremely polite, e.g. spontaneously taking of their boats before boarding.
They gave us tourist visas and a cruising permit quoting Havana as our destination. They told us explicitly that this permit enabled us to go to every ensanada, pueblo, praias, puerto... but non zona militares.
Yet in most places we where denied the right to land by the paranoid Guarda Fronteras, or held up for hours on the on the wharf until some remote refe ordered us back to our boat, and if we wanted to buy bread ashore we should go to the next marina (which could be 6 days sailing away ).
The only places where we could visit the north of Cuba was when we reached one of the 4 so called marinas, including Puerto Vita and Marina Hemingway near Havana.
On the South coast the officials were more sensible. the only restriction we met was that crews could only leave us or join us , changing our crew list, in marinas : Nueva Gerona in Isla de la Juventud, Cayo Largo, Cienfuego
