Cayo Coco, part of an island chain called Jardines Del Rey (or King’s Garden), is situated on the idyllic North coast of Cuba. Think tropical blue coloured waters and white, talcum powder soft sands which are best enjoyed with a dash of rum and you pretty much have the image of Cayo Coco.
What used to be quite an isolated part of Cuba, due to its separation from the mainland, is now linked by a 27km long causeway which slices through the beautiful Bahia de Perros (Bay of Dogs). This short drive from the mainland leads to a place where the wild swamps and scrubland contrast with the glistening all-inclusive resorts that line the coast and cater to visitors all year round.
However, don’t be fooled into thinking that all there is to do here in Cayo Coco is lounging around on the pristine sands (it is a pretty good reason to come here though). There’s one of the largest coral reefs in the world to dive and plenty of water sports to make the most of the clear waters! So a visit to Cayo Coco can be as active, or as leisurely as you want it to be!
Sitting quietly on Cuba’s east coast, Guardalavaca combines understated Cuban charm with modern luxury, for a quintessential Caribbean paradise. 20 kilometres of bleached white sands and the bluest of blue oceans lie alongside lush rainforests, waterfalls and rustic fishing villages.READ MORE
