  • Cenote de los Peces 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.

    “Interesting but disappointing ”
    Came here thinking we would see fish here but lucky to find one only. As a sinkhole other than the depth of it, it is probably safer than the beach over the road which can be choppy. Eventually went back to the beach and found the swim there more enjoyable.

    “Great place for a swim ”
    We stopped off at the Bay of Pigs with our Explore group on the way from Havana to Trinidad. Went swimming in the sea first but it was a bit choppy and the laval rocks which are sharp means you have to be careful getting in and out of the sea. This is a natural rock pool, it is fed... More

    We hired a taxi driver, Jesus, at our hotel, Iberostar Varadero, for a private tour to Playa de Giron (the Bay of Pigs). I only wish I still had his surname and phone number. I would highly recommend Jesus. He was recommend to us by our hotel concierge, Ernesto. We were quite pleased with the choice. Jesus is also the... More

The water is extremely deep (i.e. 60 meters) and there were a few people diving in and swimming around. There's a beach right across the road where you can do walk in SCUBA diving on a coral bottom with... More
