Tour Overview

Discover Bay of Pigs where 50+ years ago an invasion by Cuban exiles and organized by the US government took place. Bay of Pigs is in Zapata Swamp the biggest natural reserve in Cuba and a place that teems with wildlife.

Our first stop is Cueva de los Peces, a 70m-deep cenote (sinkhole) on the inland side of the coast road halfway between Playa Larga and Playa Girón. It’s a pretty spot popular with swimmers and snorkelers for spotting tropical fish. The brave can glide into the darker parts of an underwater cave with diving gear. Hammocks swing languidly around the crystal clear pool while the beach sparkles with aquatic promise.

Next, we’ll Learn about the history of Bay of Pigs invasion at Playa Giron’s museum. This well-kept museum with its descriptive display cases evokes a tangible sense of the history of the famous Cold War episode that unfolded within rifle-firing distance of this spot in 1961. The museum offers two rooms of artifacts from the Bay of Pigs skirmish plus numerous photos of the combat.

After lunch we’ll make our last stop of the day at Punta Perdiz, a snorkeling and diving spot where you can glide out from the shore in fish-tank clear water to a world of coral and tropical treasure.

“We did a 7 day experience with Cuba 360 – Havana, Cienfuegos, Trinidad and Varadero. Engaged with Cubans throughout and learned tons. Cesar made it so outstanding, right down to learning how to make the very best mojito! Muchas muchas gracias and here’s to a positive future for the people of the US and Cuba!”

“If I could give Cuba 360 more starts I would. These guys go far beyond to make sure you have the best trip. I’m from South Carolina and had a ton of questions about being an American. Cesar was always very quick to provide insight and answer any questions we had…”
