Reviews for Marina Darsena De Siguanea
Bad diesel!!!!!, 2016-05-11
Captain: , Austin,TX (191)

we purchased diesel here and it was the dirties we have seen and had the most water in it. Our raycors filled up with water in 1 hour. I would wait for Cayo Largo or Los Morros if posible.

All in all the anchorage is fine in easterlies, but it can get bumpy in a NNE or SSE. But is fine for the most part. If it gets rough head up to Buenavista, nice place. Nothing there, but it's calm

The officials will not come out to your boat you have to go pick them up. The entrance to the marina is 4.5 feet at best. Anchor in front on the channel markers.

Take a walk up to the Hotel Colony in the AM and wait outside for a bus to Nueva Gerona. Ask each bus where they are going, one will be headed there. It is a few cents to ride. Be sure to have Pesos Nacional. I think there is an 8ish bus and an 11ish bus. Then either take the late bus, 7pm ish, back or get a taxi for $15usd. (they want 60usd round trip from the marina or hotel).

Otherwise not much else here.


Pretty desolate place - April 2015, 2015-12-16
Captain: , New Smyrna Beach, FL (60)

Lonely and gritty, with cranky officials. Not a port of entry when we were there, so be sure you have already cleared in elsewhere. Very shoal channel ... if you draw more than 5' you may have to dinghy in, which will likely require two trips, since the officials will want to visit your boat just to break up the monotony. There is not much on this end of the Isla de la Juventud other than a tiny resort that is frequented mostly by locals. There was no bus service when we were there; if you wanted to visit Nuevo Gerona, you had to pay an arm and a leg for a cab. Even if you want to visit the nearby resort, unless you are lucky enough to catch a ride, you will likely be hoofing it through the forest. Nuevo Gerona is a pretty little town, if they would open up the harbor on that end of the island, it would be a lot easier to visit. IdlJ is bigger than most Caribbean islands, but mostly empty. There is a lovely bay just outside the Ensenada at lat/lon 2135.7/8310.2 where we loitered for a few days.

Nice place (although run down), but fuel is REALLY expensive here, 2015-01-29
Captain: , Muskegon, MI (3132)

Some cruising guides suggest that this is one of the cheapest places on the south coast to get diesel. This is NOT the case....diesel was 30% more expensive than anywhere else we saw. ItIS possible to get inside the harbor with a 5 foot draft if you hug the stakes on the south side of channel, but the bugs in the harbor are REALLY bad in the evening. We stayed out at anchor and it was not terrible.

Isolated Fuel Stop, 2012-08-20
Captain: , Halifax, Canada (392)

we anchored just north of the marina entrance in April, 2010. Entrance was too shallow for us to enter the marina (about 4 ft). Diesel was available for dive boats and transients.
Facility was OK, no services. El Colony hotel is 2km away. A dive bus runs divers back and forth from the hotel to the marina. The bus sits around most of the day. They loaned us the bus and driver to go shopping!
Shopping (very little stuff available) is on the other end of Isla de Juventud at Nueva Gerona.
Wonderful friendly people - our spanish dictionary came in handy!
