    At caleta buena there is a sort of mini resort with a bar, restaurant, a small diving centre.
    You pay 15 cuc to enter and you can stay untill 5 pm, have as many drinks as you want, have lunch.
    We enjoyed so much the swimming and the sunbathing that we did not even have lunch, it was incredible but when we have been there we were the only tourists, all that paradise just for us!

    We came to Caleta buena from Cienfuegos which is about 120 kilometers far.
    The Casa owner arranged a car with a driver for us and the trip was about 3 hours long as the street is not the best and the car......either!
    We paid 25 cuc to come here and it was a deal as the caleta was really wonderful.

    Caleta buena is not just a paradise for snorkles and people like us that just love enjoying the seaside, it's also somehow an historical place.
    Caleta buena infact is part of Bahia de Ochinos(bay of pigs) where in the 1961, 1500 opponents to Castro's governament, coming from USA tried to start an invasion of the island that quikly failed.

    Favorite thing: What surprised us first in caleta buena was the fact that there was no tourist around, we were simply alone with the staff.
    Then, after moving around a bit, we realised that there was no bungalow, no hotel, no resort, just that small restaurant and a narrow sandy street to ge there.They were so happy to sea that that small jewel had not been ruined by big buildings and yachts yet.
