  • Bay of Pigs Scuba Diving Site is located in Zapata Swamp
  • The Zapata Peninsula, one of the most important ecosystems in Cuba and the largest swamp reserve in the Caribbean, is situated in southern Matanzas. It features exceptional species of flora and fauna, many of which are endemic.

    The Montemar Great Natural Park is located in the peninsula. Here, you will find beaches, woods, mangrove swamps, rivers, lakes, flooded caves that open on the sea, natural pools and a seabed of particular beauty. In short, it is an ideal place for day and night scuba diving by both beginners and experienced divers, including the exploration of marine caves., One of the park's main attractions is its cave system, which extends along the coast for 70 km (over 43 miles). The roof of some of these caverns has caved in, turning them into semicircular lakes called "cenotes". The park is also an excellent place to go hiking, horseback riding and boating. In addition, many animals live here, and the international flyways of several kinds of birds go over the park, so you can see both native and migratory species. While in you are in the area, Guamá -a restored Taino Indian village on Laguna del Tesoro (Treasure Lake)-, the crocodile-breeding center and the Playa Girón (Bay of Pigs) Museum are musts.

      “it was a long drive from the resort, but saw lots of native activities and agriculture. ”
      The weather was great: the day was warm, and we visited a couple of Theme parks with an opportunity to select some native souvenirs . I didn't like having to pay to use a washroom..

      “We had a nice beach day at this famous bay where they invasion took place 2 end the regime of Fidel Castro ”
      It's a nice beach, but you should take your watershoes with you because of the rocks. We had lunch here and it was good. They also give you an all inclusive bracelet so you can get free drinks, which are very nice like the famous Mojito, Cuba libre or softdrinks ofcourse. This trip you just enjoy the beach life on...

      “Looking at the World Through a Different Lens ”
      For those of us of a certain age, the Bay of Pigs is an unpleasant memory, regardless of your politics. However, just how screwed up the battle plan was is made more than evident by visiting this area and excellent museum and see just how badly the cards were stacked against the invaders.

      “Excellent Casa at Playa Larga ”
      one of the few beeches in Cuba we found where you can get away from the all-inclusives (and meet some real Cubanos. if you want a great casa that doesn't have a website, go to Osneida and Leticia's casa. From the bus, grab a bicycle cab ("bc") and he'll take you there. (it's on the boat lagoon (forget it'sname). these... More

      “Great Snorkelling ”
      Did a day trip here from Varadero via the crocodile farm and the most bizarre zoo I've ever been to! The snorkelling here is fantastic and you don't even have to venture out to far to see some beautiful fish.

      “so glad we went! ”
      Came here on a day trip from Varadero Was well worth going, plenty to see and do, the museum is small, but gives a real view on how it was for the people at the time (not a fancy push buttons place) afterwards you can swim or snorkel in the Caribbean sea Just great!

      “Just amazing ”
      We just spend our 4th wedding anniversary, diving at playa Giron. I've dove Bay of pigs a few times with Club Scubazul and the beauty if this place just amazes me... I always see new things and It's mostly because of our dive masters. Do visit the crocodile farms, jump in the cenote and go for the great paladar lunch.
