Playa Giron

The Bay of Pigs

After Trinidad we decided to not see another touristic city in Cuba but go to another beach and check out some more diving areas. That´s why we drove to the Bay of Pigs. Playa Giron – at the Bay of Pigs – is a normal, not really beautiful village. There is a governmental hotel, many casas and a few restaurants (but eating in the casas is a good option here). People come here either for relaxing, snorkeling or diving. Our casa was 20 CUC/ night, 5 CUC for a very rich breakfast (perfect for diving) and 8 CUC for dinner (vegetarian should be cheaper).


  • Don´t go diving with the dive school at Hotel Playa Giron, take the bus to Caleta Buena or to Bahia de los Pesces, there are also diving schools, less divers, more relaxed
  • The beach right in front of the Hotel is not nice, because of the big wavebreaker. If you go a bit more northeast you´ll get to another nice beach, there is nothing but a nice bar with beer, fruites, coconuts, plus nice swimming.
