marina in cuba jamaica florida keys haiti ??

We will be sailing our 56ft cat from st martin in late Dec to Cuba, but need to travel back home to Oz for 4-6 weeks in early Feb and would like to leave her in the area so we can continue our cruise upon our return. Any recommendations would be appreciated (safety, security, price)

Re: marina in cuba jamaica florida keys haiti ??

Marinas in Cuba are available in both Cayo Largo and Cienfuegos.
After spending time at both I think they are safe and there are people that could watch your boat.
Cienfuegos would be easier for you to get to the Havana Airport if you wanted to rent a minibus or car. However you could also fly out of Cayo Largo to Havana if money is not an issue.

However my suggestion would be to leave the boat in Grand Cayman (overnight sail to Cuba) either at a marina or Private dock which most are in gated communities and quite safe. Also quite reasonable prices compared to the eastern Caribbean and you can get most anything you need there.

I should mention that Port Antonio Jamaica has a very nice marina and they are really trying to grow. The boat boys that walk the docks are a bit irritating but I think your boat would be safe. Also the airports are quite a distance with Kingston being the closest.

Good luck on your voyage.
