Jibacoa, or more properly Playa Jibacoa, is a fishing village in the Mayabeque Province of Cuba. It is located in the municipality of Santa Cruz del Norte, at the mouth of the Jibacoa River, 60 km east of Havana.

Overview[edit]

The settlement was founded in 1756 on the location of a corral.

In the 1990s, an all-inclusive resort (under the Jamaican Superclub Breezes brand) was built east of the village. This was one of the first openings of Cuban economy to foreign investments.[citation needed]
