Dazzling Cuba Underwater

Dive in 3 different spectacular places in the Caribbean Sea and get to know the most important sights of Central Cuba.


Description

Discover 3 different dive regions of the Cuban south coast: In Playa Larga you can dive directly from the shore. The area is very attractive thanks to the steep oceanic cliffs near the coast. In Cienfuegos you explore a wonderful landscape of soft and hard corals, labyrinths and cliffs and in Trinidad beautiful reefs, as well as small wrecks. In addition to the great diving spots, you will also discover the lively capital Havana, the historically known Bay of Pigs and the colonial triangle: Cienfuegos, Santa Clara and Trinidad.
