Maria La Gorda Scuba Diving Trip Price Cost Cheap Dive Excursions Diving trip to Maria La Gorda

In the western part of the island, in the area of Pinar del Rio, the isolated site of Maria la Gorda is internationally famous for its dives along big drop-offs covered with black corals. Accessible only if you are motorized, this haven of peace is classified biosphere reserve by UNESCO. This status has protected the many underwater species and corals of the area. There are no less than 38 species of hard corals, 27 species of gorgonians and 39 species of sponges. During the months of May and June, the sandy beaches of Maria Gorda serve as nesting places for sea turtles. A diving trip to Maria La Gorda is therefore an obligatory stop of your diving trip.

Bay of Pigs and Playa Larga

If you are looking for a easily accessible place from Havana with many nice dives, the easiest way is to go to Playa Larga, a charming little village by the sea or to Playa Giron. From there taxis can take you to the Cueva de los Peces which is a falling coral 70 meters high about 50 m from the shore. Small wrecks of landing barges rest on the edge of the wall. On the other side of the road, opposite the restaurant, there are several cenotes inundated with fresh water and salt water. On Route 11, there is another rest area: Punta Perdiz with a dive center and many dive sites. Once again, a superb drop off will allow you to observe the fauna and flora of the Caribbean.

Jardines de la Reina

Located about 100 kilometers or five sailing hours from Cuba, the Queen's Gardens is an uninhabited archipelago that became a national park in 2002.

Composed of nearly 600 cayos and covering an area of 2170 km2, it is one of the largest protected areas of Cuba. This archipelago is home to a preserved ecosystem that makes it one of the best diving spots in the world. Coral reefs are recognized as some of the most beautiful of the Caribbean. The mixture of ocean currents with the Caribbean Sea load this area with nutrients that reef fish enjoy very much. A busy life always attracts predators and big fish. The result is a magical underwater landscape and abundant wildlife.
