The Playa María la Gorda Beach is every diving lover’s dream. Its crystalline waters and the relative closeness of its reefs to the coast turn it, along with the Isla de la Juventud, into one of the best places to practice this sport.


There are two areas, which are especially interesting for diving, the Valle de Coral Negro (Black Coral Valley), which makes up the biggest black coral surface in the archipelago, and the Salón de María, where you can see lilies and corals of different colors.

In case you are interested, the International Diving Center offers a diving course. It lasts 4 days and costs approximately 365 CUC. Once you finish it, the Subaquatic Activities Worldwide Confederation will give you a diving certificate.

It is also possible to practice snorkeling, which is also cheaper (12 CUC approx.).
