Cuba: Playa Giron

In the south of the Cuba there is a place called Playa Giron, or Bahia de Cochinos, or in simple English the Bay of Pigs. During our 14-day round trip we made a short break in one of the beach resorts for tourists. For a fixed entry fee, you can get unlimited access to buffet and drinks and beach access. There is also a centre for water sports, snorkeling and diving – for which the bay was just great. This bay has also a certain historical meaning to Cubans – a failed military invasion of Cuba on 17 April 1961. More about this for example on wiki.

Zátoka svíň sa nachádza na juhozápade Kuby. Toto miesto je známe z histórie: Invázia v Zátoke Svíň (Wiki). My sme sa tam zastavili v rámci nášho 14-dňového objanovania ostrova slobody v jednom turistickom rezorte schladiť a vykúpať. Za malý poplatok (tuším to bolo 5 CUC) nás pustilo do areálu, kde bol bufet all you can eat, nápoje, voda, toalety a “šatne”. V rezorte bolo aj stredisko pre potápanie, šnorchlovanie a vodné športy. Vstup do vody bol veľmi strmý, najlepšie sa išlo po schodoch. Rybičky si vás prišli okuknúť až takmer k brehu. A nás schladilo nielen more ale aj občasný Karibský dáždik.
