Playa Jibacoa is the name of a small village located in the North coast of the Island, exactly in the province of Mayabeque. The region offers to the visitor a very quiet place with wonderful littoral views and a wide variety of colors.
Actually, the area is surrounded by a vast vegetation and high cliffs that contrast with the quiet seashore line. Even if Jibacoa has always been a fishing village, the place is growing for tourism thanks to the location and magnificent resort complexes established in the area.
