Playa Larga is a big travel destination for divers, as it's not far from the coast with great diving spots, though anyone with a love for nature will enjoy Playa Larga. This smaller village is just next to one of the most important protected areas of Cuba, The Zapata Swamp. This wetland is a haven for hundreds of species of birds. Additionally, it is also home to the Cuban Crocodile, found only in Cuba. And of course for any history fans, the invasion at the Bay of Pigs happened here on the beaches of Playa Larga.
