  • We took a long weekend trip to Cuba from Miami and our highlight of the trip was going to Playa Larga. From eating at Mily's, to a refreshing swim at Cueva de los Pesces, we can't wait to head straigh...  more »
  • If you can, make a stop here. There is a beautiful area for snorkeling on the ocean side. You can rent equipment for $5 CUC (mask), I believe it was another $5 CUC for the flippers as well. If you've ...  more »
  • Nice cenote didn't see a lot of fish as visibility wasn't great but worth a visit before swimming at the reef of Playa Larga which is at the same place. There are no steps/ladder into the cave so you ...  more »

  • an amazing heaven includes a cave and a sea wall. There is an underwater cave the depth is about 70 meters, the water on the surface is not that much salty but by going through the cave the rate of salt is getting more because the cace is connected to the sea. Also you can sea some kind of fishes and really big cave shrimp. I should add I went through the cave with Scub diving equipment a couple of months ago, it was one my best experience around the world really . Don't forget there is a nice beach with the coral wall also, by passing the wall the depth will be more than 400 meters and the visibility is more than 30 meters also.
  • Great spot to go Snorkeling and relax on a hot day. The water is clear and you can see all type of little fishes: rainbow fish and blue fish. On one side is snorkeling and on the other side is a small water cave that you can swim in as well.
  • Wonderful swimming hole which is connected to the sea and​ is full of beautiful fish.
  • Gorgeous secluded beach with snorkeling and all-inclusive drinks and lunch
  • A great place to stop on the way to Bay of Pigs. This is the deepest flooded cave in Cuba (70 meters). There is a restaurant and they offer rental of diving equipment. Swimming in the cave was free and fun.
