Ciego de Ávila isn't one of Cuba's most memorable culinary provinces. The big resorts on the northern cayos have self-contained food operations. The best bet for independent travelers is the handful of beach-side ranchones (rustic, opened-sided restaurants) on Cayos Coco and Guillermo. The cities of Morón and Ciego de Ávila have a light sprinkling of private restaurants and some pretty ordinary (if cheap) state-run joints.
