Jaguey Grande, simply known as Jagüey (Spanish pronunciation: [xaˈɣwej]), is a town and municipality in the Matanzas Province of Cuba. It is located east of the Zapata Peninsula, north of the Bahia de Cochinos, along the A1 motorway in the center of the province.
The municipality was historically divided into the barrios of Pueblo (town's centre), Gallardo, López, Murga Sinú and Rovira. Nowadays it counts the town itself and the popular councils (consejos populares, i.e. villages) of Agramonte, Australia, San José de Marcos and Torriente. Agramonte, the most populated village, was an autonomous municipality until the 1976 reform.
