  • Description Scuba Diving Site and Center: Punta Perdiz Scuba Diving Site, Zapata Swamp. Cuba

    This site is located in the Bay of Pigs, in the Caribbean Sea and you can swim up to it from the coast. It is one of the most spectacular wall diving sites, since the ecological conditions in the area have favored the development of a typical and exuberant underwater ecosystem which accompanies divers right from the coastline down to the very edge of the wall, at a depth of scarcely 10 meters, then drops off sharply to over 300 meters.

  • Punta Perdiz 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.

    “Uninspired ”
    Punta Perdiz is actually a nice place. There is a large lawn where you can sit under some trees; the restaurant is so far OK and you can even make a decent dive there. But there is (like always in Cuba) one very weak point: The entrance into the sea. You can only enter the sea at ONE point as... More

    “An interesting dive spot in the Bahia de Cochinos ”
    Im my humble opinion the best dive spot in the Bay of the Pigs. The dive starts straight from the shore, getting in and out is fairly easy when the water is relatively calm. We've been diving in Punta Perdiz in early November 2014 and we had excellent visibility underwater - approximately 30-40 meters. The diversity of underwater life is... More

    “Dive spot ”
    Great dive, the wall is worth the trip. The ladder can be a little tricky when the water is choppy and there is a line up to get in or out. Best to stay back about 20 feet to avoid being slammed into the shore or bottom until it is clear. However once in the water, the small wreck, the... More

    Excellent snorkeling near playa Giron. Sea is very calm. Interesting fish, some hassling form the local remora. There is an entrance fee of 15 CUC, we negotiaded a price of 5 CUC each for chairs and the open bar since we weren't planning to eat there. There are several entrance points to the sea, there is a rocky one but... More

    “good snorkelling and diving ”
    Can be crowded and perhaps best to check out similar spots which can be very nearby. Similarly you can avoid the fees by just moving a few metres

    “Punta Perdiz is a great place for snorkeling around Playa Giron ”
    Punta Perdiz is one of the marked sites around the road from Playa Larga to Playa Giron. It is a great place for snorkeling around Playa Giron. It is open 11am-5pm and entry costs 15 CUC/person. There is also a restaurant that looks like a ship. We came there at 5pm so we entered without any fee. There is no... More

    “Do not pay the entry.. just go few meters away... ”
    It's amazing piece of shore close to the Punta Perdiz. But you don't have to snorkel with all the other tourists, just go further and than you will find amazing wildlife... :)
