Playa Giron

Playa Giron takes its name from a French pirate who once made the area unsafe. Today, Playa Giron is primarily the destination of divers and snorkelers from all over the world. The village itself is a village with about 2,000 inhabitants and a dreamy charm. On the beach, the shallow ground drops away to a wall of black coral. Here you can observe amber fish and small tuna fish. During the invasion in the Bay of Pigs in 1961 1300 Cuban exiles and CIA consultants landed in Playa Giron with the aim to overthrow the young government of Fidel Castro. After only 3 days they failed miserably. Prior to the United Nations General Assembly, the US government initially denied any involvement in the invasion, and later President John F. Kennedy took full responsibility.

General:

Playa Giron is located on the east coast of the Bay of Pigs, about 40 km southeast of Boca de Guama and only about 30 km from Playa Large, also a unique diving and snorkeling paradise. Guama is the largest subterranean cave and lake system in Latin America. From Girona, Playa Giron is about 145 km southwest on the Caribbean side of Cuba. You should also visit the bay Caleta Buena, only 6 km southeast of Playa Giron. For only 15 CUC you can buy here a 1 day all inclusive package and enjoy the beautiful bay with Mojito and Daiquiri.
