July, 2020.- From Manzanillo we sailed to the Guacanayabo, explored by Christopher Columbus, on his trips through the region.
We are guided by the memories of the Spanish chronicler Antonio Perpiñá, who was stunned by so much natural beauty.
«Those oases illuminated by the first rays of the sun, appeared to me to the enchanted islands ruled by the nymphs of the fable. Seabirds, crossing the immensity of the waves with majestic flight, left the lush forests to show off their colorful plumage on the sandy beaches of that peaceful sea. »
We can see Los Pájaros, a small island that is still wild and intact west of Cayo Blanco. They are places of suggestive seabed.
Later we distinguished seven keys, which symbolize the vanguard in the east of the Las Doce Leguas maze. It becomes a coast of different shades in this large portion of the sea that penetrates the land. Shades ranging from pastel blue to greenish blue.
We arrive at Santa Cruz del Sur through the Guacanayabo, with a green landscape in the background. It was like emerging from everyday paths, to explore nature in its total virginity; live off the abundance of the sea. (Author’s photos).(Translated by Linet Acuña Quilez)
