The Bay of Pigs has a number of exclusive features for dive (and snorkel) enthusiasts:
• It is an exceptional dive site located relatively close to Varadero and Havana.
• We talk about shore-diving; from the coast. Boat-transport becomes unnecessary (beneficial for people suffering seasickness), making the immersions economically more attractive.
• This also implies that one usually could make two immersions during daytime and one night dive.
• One can combine open water and cave diving in flooded brackish water, which is common in this area.
Enrich and plan your travel itinerary. Book and pay on-line attractive scuba dive packages, together with your hotel reservation in Playa Larga or Playa Girón.
