Feel right at home
Find all-inclusive resorts nestled along the white sandy shores of Cayo Coco and Cayo Santa Maria, with services and amenities galore to help you build the vacation of your dreams. Go for a morning dip in warm ocean waves, swim up to the pool bar and order your favourite cocktail, dine on local and international cuisine, or take full advantage of the services at the onsite Spa Center. Whatever way you choose to fill your days, you’ll find there’s plenty to see and do without leaving the resort.
Set sail off the Cayos
How about a change in perspective? Spend the day out on the sea with a Catamaran excursion! Take in miles of beautiful coast as you sail along the islands’ shores. Head for the reef and dive into crystal clear waters, where you swim among dazzling marine life and the beautiful corals of the Caribbean. When a morning of in the ocean has worked up an appetite, hop back on board and enjoy a delicious meal and refreshments from the on-board bar.
Explore nearby beaches
The Jardines del Ray archipelago, or King’s Gardens, is located off Cuba’s northern shore, an island chain that stretches over 200km. Made up of 10 beautiful islets, you’ll find no shortage of beaches to explore!
Visit the famous Playa Pilar located in Cayo Guillermo, one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful beaches! Its powdery, white sand and calm, turquoise waters make for a perfect getaway from, well, your getaway. Try your hand at fishing or other water activities or rent a palapas and spend your day lounging in the shade.
If you’re on Cayo Santa Maria, pack a picnic and head to the virgin shores of Playa de las Giovatas, a protected wildlife reserve on the eastern side of the island. After a short hike through jungle, you’ll be rewarded with a sparkling oasis away from resort life.
Savour the flavours of Cuba
Don’t forget to sample the national spirit of Cuba – rum! Rum is a major key in the island’s culture and identity. Cuban rum takes a well-deserved spot as some of the world’s best with over a dozen distilleries nationwide. Whether you enjoy it on the rocks, as a Cuba Libre, or in a daiquiri, its authentic flavours will transport you right into vacation mode.
Get into the Groove of Cuban Music
Step to the richness of Cuban music, intricately rooted in West African beats and Spanish melodies! Many resorts offer daily performances and live entertainment so you can experience this important part of the island’s culture. Whether you’re taking in world famous Cuban Jazz or dancing along to Salsa Cubano, let the vibrant lively rhythm of Cuban music take you away.
Take in the exotic wildlife and biodiversity
Did you know that Cuba is home to one of the Caribbean’s largest flamingo colonies? Bring your binoculars and try to spot the many different species of birds that call the islands home, zip through the dense forests of mangroves by speedboat, and keep a look out for dolphins off in the horizon.
With miles of lush landscapes, thriving corals, an abundance of exotic wildlife, and Cuba’s commitment to conservation, it’s not hard to see why Cuba is a popular destination among nature lovers.
Explore. Relax. Sleep. Repeat.
Whether you enjoy vacationing for the beach, the views, the excursions, or the culture, the Cuban Cayos certainly have it all.
