Cayos de la Leņa
The Cayos de la Leña are part of the Arrecifes Colorados, located along the northwest coast of the province of Pinar del Río, Cuba. Until the early 1980s, De la Leña Keys was known as an untouched paradise, where nests of speices like Pandion haliaetus ridwayi could be found, but unrestricted access to visitors changed the privileged status, and remains of canned food could also be found down depths of 17 meters.
