Cuba - Ciénaga de Zapata

We've left Havana, and have driven for a couple of hours to Matanzas Province on the south coast of Cuba, where we will spend a few days near Playa Giron, the "Bay of Pigs". There is a big national park here, Parque Nacional Ciénaga de Zapata, where we take a boat ride to Guamá. According to Wikitravel, "This is an island in a lake, the Laguna del Tesero (Treasure Lake). Fidel Castro enjoyed vacationing on the island and commissioned the building of a Taíno native village and 32 sculptures depicting native life."
