The Cueva de los Peces is located between Playa Larga et Playa Giron.
We visited this natural swimming pool with crystal-clear water, who is 70 meters deep. Our guide explained us that this natural swimming pool gives direct access to the deepest cave in Cuba, resulting from long-term tectonic motion.
A beautiful and peaceful place! Because crystal-clear waters are full of tropical fish and multicolored corals, it's a paradise for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts!!!

Beautiful environment to have a dip. Crabs are housing on the rocks around the cenote. Free entry, unless you come by rental car and pay for the car `watch`. Still worth the visit.

We had a stop there during our Bay of Pigs Tour. We stayed a bit there to rest and relax. But I was the only one to swim and I chose to go snorkeling in the sea. This location is relaxing and peaceful. Lots of green, nice pathway until the cave and nice singing birds' surroundings. At the entrance, there is also a young crocodile, that you can touch, hug and carry. "El Pucho" is his name. (If it happens that you are Greek like me, you'll probably laugh as much as I did when I heard it!). It was fun & interesting. What a shame though we didn't get to see the birds. The snorkeling though at the sea across the cave, paid off for everything!

Intresting dive exploring a steep wall which goes deep. You are starting from the shore and its a fairly easy dive, except to access the sea. Do not forget to take a proper pair of shoes

It was rather strange seeing beautiful coloured reef fish in this fresh & salt water lagoon. It's a beautiful little swimming hole with apparantly lots of good cave diving & snorkeling in the area. Not many tourists here mainly locals & very under developed but scratch the surface & you can find some beautiful natural unspoilt areas to explore. At the beach opposite you can go snorkeling or scuba diving right off the beach, no boat needed. The variety of fish & coral is amazing with a big deep reef drop off only 100 meters out from the shore. The area is renowned for the massive red crab migration crossing the road from the mangroves to the beach for spawning in December. Playa Larga has a nice sandy beach also.

Both this spot and Punta Perdiz are great diving and snorkeling spots. It is easy to get there from Playa Larga. The dive centre sends a school bus around town every morning (ask your casa for times - usually starting about 8:30) and then runs all interested folks who climb aboard over to the dive centre. You can choose to dive (CUC 35 for a newby session; or CUC 25 for experienced divers per dive) or snorkel (just pay CUC10 for the ride or add CUC 5 if you need to rent gear). Bus runs to Punta Perdiz first, giving divers about 45' and snorkelers about 90' in the water; then back to Cueva de los Peces - giving similar times in the water. Bus gets back to town around 2pm.

An oasis of sweet water in the forest. The place is beautiful and you can swim around and observe the fishes. They have as well a restaurant.

Cueva de los peces itself was pretty gross. The water was dirty and you could see plastic pieces floating. However just at the other side of the road the spot at the beach for snorkel is pretty good and we managed to see plenty of fishes. Water was clean and even though the access is not the best one it’s beautiful.
