Playa Girón is found on the Bay of Pigs, a bay with a famous name that is now being appreciated for its abundance of wildlife. The village is centered along the beach, found in one of the world’s largest wetland.
At the center of a conflict back in 1961, Girón and Larga were actually landing sites during the Bay of Pigs Invasion, and there is a museum here that is well worth a visit. The conflict between the USA and Cuba that began around this time is finally on the road to mending itself, today.
The islands are warm and comfortable throughout the year, and are frequented by tourism. There are still places to get away from it all here, making it a favorite haunt for backpackers and adventurers.
On Playa Girón, go to the Museo Giron where you will learn all about the region’s fascinating history. Go to the Cueva de los Peces for an excellent hike or two, as well as a stellar place to cool off, taking a wel- earned dip. Both islands have beaches that you won’t want to leave, so soak up some rays in that warm Cuban sun.
Once you make it to Havana you can take a local flight to a nearby town or utilize public transportation. Many guests opt to rent or hire a car, getting you where you need to go in the fastest time possible.
