Beautiful Cayo Coco has long been inspiring visitors, among them the illustrious American writer and Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemmingway. The island, together with nearby Cayo Guillermo, formed major settings in his novels Islands in the Stream and The Old Man and the Sea.

In 1988, the Cuban government constructed a causeway to the island, jumpstarting the era of resort-building and international tourism. There are now more than ten major resorts on Cayo Coco, as well as a small airport welcoming visitors since 2005. This means that you can opt out of ground transportation in favour of a one-hour domestic flight from Havana if you so choose.

All-Inclusive Indulgence

Cayo Coco is known particularly as an all-inclusive destination, meaning that the price you pay for your hotel also includes meals, drinks, excursions, activities, and non-motorised equipment rentals for water sports. However, this doesn't mean that small tips aren't accepted for quality service!

Every hotel on Cayo Coco is beachfront, so the silky white sand will be a short walk away no matter where you're staying. In addition, all resorts feature quality facilities including swimming pools, restaurants, and fine entertainment options regardless of the price level. So, whether you're looking for luxury, a secluded island paradise, or a mix of both, Cayo Coco could be the ideal Cuban spot for you and your loved ones.

Beautiful Beaches

As we mentioned above, you'll have beach access no matter where you stay on Cayo Coco. Even better, these are some of the most beautiful beaches in Cuba-and the world.

There are over 30 (non-continuous) kilometres of pristine white sand beaches on the northern side of Cayo Coco, where all the resorts are located. There is also a very fairly-priced shuttle service that runs the length of the island's north coast, so if you decide that you want to escape the "crowds" at your resort, you are totally free to go! The resorts are gathered together on the eastern side of the island, so heading west means heading away from the tourists and into even more peaceful, natural surroundings.

All beaches in Cuba are open to the public, so feel free to move about at your will. Whether in front of your own hotel, another resort, or on the quieter western end of Cayo Coco, you're sure to find a stunning beach just for you.

Surprising Scuba Diving

As part of the world-famous Jardines del Rey archipelago, Cayo Coco and its neighbouring islands offer some of the world's most pristine underwater habitats for you to enjoy.

Cayo Coco's offshore reefs are home to a variety of prime dive spots for both beginner and advanced scuba divers. With depths ranging from five to 30 metres and home to diverse species of fish, rays, turtles, and a few sharks, there's something here for everyone to enjoy.

If this sounds like something you'd enjoy, just let your hotel staff know. They'll be happy to put you in touch with a local certified guide.
