Cayo Coco

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

Off the northern coast of Cuba, this gorgeous part of the world rises from the turquoise waters of the Atlantic. Miles of sand, a dense forest, mangroves and rose flamingos, the Camaguey archipelago is not unlike a Robinson Crusoe hideout. The hotels are located mostly on the main island of Cayo Coco, linked to the mainland by a majestic road running for some 12 miles. You will also find some high quality hotels in Cayo Guillermo if you travel to Cayo Coco.

To see

People come here to relax and enjoy a holiday by the ocean so, relaxation and sports activities are on the agenda and not much else!

To do

If you're a fan of watersports you'll get your fix; from waterskiing, to windsurfing, jetskiing to sailing, diving or snorkelling - it's all possible here!

pros

  • +  The hotels are of a good standard and in good condition
  • +  It's isolated
  • +  The airport is not too far

cons

  • -  Few tour operators include the archipelago as a direct destination
  • -  The prices can get expensive

To think about

Remember to avoid the cyclone season (October - November). Bring along light clothing and lots of sunscreen.

To avoid

Avoid making negative or critical comments about the Castros, or ask their opinion on the political regime; this may make Cubans feel uncomfortable.

To try

Cuban cuisine is quite simple and not diverse. Chicken and rice are its main staples. It is common for potatoes, fried bananas and yams to be served with the main meal. Make it your mission to taste the local lobster!

To bring back

Of course, Cuban rum is excellent, as are the cigars. The local shirts, known as guayabera and straw hats guajiro are also a good buy. As for the music, you will find many recordings by local artists.
