We spent an hour or so at the Castillo and enjoyed it, but probably enjoyed the busy (really really crowded) ferry ride there and back as much - be warned, we got there ten mins before the ferry was due to leave and had to run and practically jump on it as it had decided it was leaving early!

This was a fun excursion, first taxi, then ferry, then another ferry back across the bay. The castle/fort has some interesting stuff. There’s a great, tiny seafood cafe nearby with fresh lobster. A great day out. Recommend

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Jugua Castle. It’s really an old fort that was never in battle. It is well-preserved, scenic, and has interesting exhibits.

Lovely ferry trip over the mouth of the bay in Cienfuegos to visit this wonderful castle. Guided tour gave us a wonderful history of the fortifications.

Pretty neat structure from the Spanish days.

It’s in good shape and about a 30 minute boat ride from town.

Worth the effort to check it out.

This place is one hour from the city taking the ferry. The Castle is a museum and you can go upstairs to take wonderful pictures of the bay. Around the Castle you can find different places to take the lunch with fresh fish.

The Jagua Castle is very well preserved and a has a great views of the entrance to the bay as well as the ocean. We were on a cruise and when we left the harbor you can take some great pictures.

This fort was on my top 5 things to see in cienfuegos.Its a hidden gem,out there on the bay,waiting to be seen.Like other Spanish forts,it used to protect the bay.Theres is a ferry early in the morning,at 8am and at 1pm.I took the 1pm.A crowded ferry,but worth it once you see the entire bay,and panoramic views from the area.Make sure u check what time ferry returns,once you are there you wanna take your time,remember Cuba is not like back home,things are more layback there.Transportation wont be there when u need it.After seen all the Fort,I took my time,I decided to eat after in a local house w gorgeous views of the bay.People as soon as the ferry gets to Jagua castle,they'll be inviting you to there homes restaurants to eat,with a bay view.The fort and museum had many artifacts,and colonial things that will make you go back in time.The ladys that are there where all very nice.One had some picture of me taken when I was leaving the castle.I enjoyed the castle,as much as possible,just as I enjoyed the ones in havana.This one was a favorite,wasnt too crowed.One last thing,do not take other ferry to pasacaballo,not much to see there but a goverment hotel,made by a Russian engineer,I was told.If you do take it,taxis and transportation are hard to get there.I ended up,crossing to pasacaballo,and I regreted it.Could not find no taxis there,only transportation was the local bus.waited more an hour, and ahalf.I ennded up takingt locals bus to returned to cienfuegos.All because I took my time at the castle and eating afterwards.But at the end I enjoyed everything!!
