Cayo Coco, is located in the Jardines del Rey archipelago and together with Varadero represent the Cuba most popular beaches.
Its 22km of white-sand beaches, its lush tropical landscape, its turquoise and calm waters, its 10 km of enchanting underwater coral reef, its flocks of pink Flamingo have inspired Ernest Hemingway’s novel, Islands in the Stream.
No wonder why! The perfect place to relax and set your mind free and away from the rest of the world. For those looking for activities, Cayo Coco has plenty to do above and under its Caribbean waters: as windsurfing, sailing, fishing and bird watching (other than Flamingo many other species inhabit this area like Cormorants, Woodpeckers, Mockingbirds and Pelicans).
For the snorkeling and diving enthusiasts the island is equipped with diving facilities offering scuba packages and services.
Very few places in the world can compete with Cayo Coco’s beauty, even at night, when the sky is illuminated with millions of stars, the natural show is breath taking.

another paradise of white sandy coral beaches fringed by palms and bathed by the blue-green waters of the Caribbean sea. The favorite fishing place of Ernest Hemingway’s Cayo Guillermo is the most attractive destination in Cuba for deep-sea fishing lovers. Visit Playa Pilar, the beach named like the boat of American writer…..and she’s still docked there! Quite smaller than Cayo Coco, however Cayo Guillermo is famous for its sand dunes, ones of the tallest in the Caribbean and for its over 30 dive sites spread on the long coral reef. Other than fishing, water sports like surfing or boat riding are some of the activities practicable on the spectacular water of this small island.
You can also choose to explore the natural surround or going for horseback riding or again for bird watching. At the west end of Cayo Guillermo there’s a vast colony of pink Flamingos and Pelicans.
like Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo represents the ideal setting for a wonderful and relaxing holiday in Cuba
Don’t forget to take the book “Islands in the Stream” with you when you leave home to these paradisiac locations!
We recommend a guided tour on the catamaran as the best way to explore and discover the beauty of all other minors cays of the archipelago.
For those wishing a trip to the mainland, the province of Ciego de Ávila, we suggest fishing at Laguna Redonda or Laguna de la Leche, Cuba’s largest natural lake; and excursions to the historic military route, La Trocha, or a weekend to Isla Turiguanó for the rodeo.
