Areas of Natural Interest
Address
Península de Zapata. Ciénaga de Zapata. Matanzas
Description
The swamp covers an area of 70 277 hectares and is located to the south of the Province of Matanzas in the peninsula known under the same name. It is recognized as the largest and most important humid soil of Cuba and the Caribbean islands. Its vegetation is made up of forests, great extensions of mangroves, swamp weed and coastal bushes, which is why it is considered the most important ecosystem of the country; serving as the habitat of numerous species of sea birds, mammals, amphibious and invertebrates; among them, the Crocodilus Rhombifer, endemic crocodile of Cuba; the manatí, the mottled woodpecker, the fermina, the parrot and the cabrerito of the swamp.



This is also an appropriate place for some migratory birds to rest during the winter. Due to its undisputable natural values, this place offers options of great interest, including ecotouristic pathways, the observation of birds, speleodiving in casimbas (sunken caves), excursions, nautical sports and others that allow you to admire its endemic flora and fauna.
