Cayo Coco is one of the paradisiacal tourist centers in Cuba and the Caribbean, with beaches of white sand, calm, transparent waters and mangrove forest reaching the shoreline. The crystal blue of the sea, the immaculate white beaches and the refreshing green forest come together to make this beautiful place the best destination for an unforgettable vacation.
Cayo Coco ranks fourth in terms of extension in the Cuban archipelago, with an area of 370 sq. km and the added appeal of 22 kilometers of excellent beaches, supplemented by the mangrove forest and coconut trees which, contrary to what it may seem, do not give Cayo Coco its name—this comes from a bird known as the White Ibis, popularly called the pájaro coco [Coco Bird], with its bright colored feathers adding personality to the region.
Many colonies of flamingos and other migratory bird species have Cayo Coco or other islands in the archipelago as ports of call, so to say, but this does not clash with the tourist infrastructures in the zone, which are highly respectful of the natural surroundings.
The nearness of a coral barrier stretching over 400 kilometers, which experts consider the second most important one in the world (after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia) adds a touch of distinction, aside from being ideal for diving or snorkeling activities, in warm waters featuring excellent visibility.
Cayo Coco features first rate hotels, artificial lakes, swimming pools, a great entertainment offer, guest animation and services and even an air travel terminal. All of this can be enjoyed in one of the best natural environments in Cuba that has hardly been altered by man.
