For this excursion we can leave from two different places:the first is from Havana and the second one from Playa Larga´s Neighborhood at Ciénaga de Zapata´s Municipality. In both places we can  pick the customers up in their own accommodations  or Hoteles; in case of Havana we must start at 7:30 due to the long distance  but if the customers are in Playa larga we can start at 9:00 am.The first activity of the day will be the visit to The Fishes´ Cave ( Lat: 22,166 Lon: – 81,136 ) this is one of the deepest cave of the island with 74 m. We will make a snorkel enjoying of several fishes’ habitat in, immediately afterwards changing positions to the water of Cochinos’s Bay to continue with the snorkel but this time in the bay’s crystalline water where we will enjoy the coral reef with over a hundred of fishes that interact to form all tinted show which we won´t forget.
