Most people know this place because of the famous military operation that happened here in 1961. This event heated up the Cold War and marked a very important period in the history of Cuba. But it is not the only thing that attracts tourists to The Bay of Pigs.
This region is a paradise for outdoor adventurers. The Bay of Pigs (Bahia de Cochinos) is located on the south coast of Cuba and is framed by two marvelous white beaches: Playa Girón and Playa Larga. To reach them, you can take a hike in the Ciénaga de Zapata National Park. Every visitor admires the fabulous flora and fauna of this area.
On your way to the bay you can stop by the Crocodile Farm. In the past century the Cuban crocodile was in danger of extinction. But with the help of Boca de Guama farm, 300 adult species are released into the wild every year.
When you will arrive to the beach we recommend you to go snorkeling or diving. It doesn’t matter how much experience you have. Local warm waters are a magnet for the tourists who love to explore the underwater world. What makes this bay a special place for divers is an outstanding underwater wall that is descending 450 below the surface. By the way, it can be reached in a two-minute swim from the shore.
