With five towers, seven hook up points, capacity for up to 110 skiers per day (12 simultaneously), and an area of more than 7,000 square meters, the water skiing cable-way, located in the northern Jardines del Rey resort, will contribute to the diversification of Cuban tourism products.
A cable skiing system makes it possible to learn and practice water skiing and wake-boarding at a constant speed, over a course that covers a distance of up to 530 meters. The skier’s rope and handle are pulled by a horizontal electrically-driven cable, up to ten meters above sea level.

The most dire diplomatic crisis of the Trump administration, or maybe just the weirdest, began without much notice in November 2016, some three weeks after the new president was elected. An American working at the U.S. Embassy in Havana—some call him Patient Zero—complained that he had heard strange noises outside his home. “It was annoying to the point where you had to go in the house and close all the windows and doors and turn up the TV,” the diplomat told ProPublica.
