Cuba - Playa Giron

While visiting La Cienaga de Zapata, we stayed at the Hotel Playa de Giron, which has a rather strange structure guarding the beach. We think it is a breakwater, though some have suggested that it is intended to impede another invasion like that of the Bay of Pigs, which happened here in 1961.
