Capital of Cuba
The beautiful, crystalline waters around Havana lend themselves perfectly to snorkeling. You can hire snorkeling equipment on many of the main beaches around Havana, and then head out into the water to take a look at the bright colours of the local marine life. The tides off the coast are mostly gentle, but do ensure that a lifeguard is present on the beach before entering the water. Snorkeling in Havana is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon, and the perfect prelude to a cocktail on the beach.
