  • Our group was on board the Neptune. We anchored here in the morning and had a little explore as the place was opening. Lovely beach with a restaurant surrounded by nature. There are Iguanas and Hutia ...  more »
  • We spent one week on this beautiful place for relax and dive. Unfortunatly it was colder than expected, only 20-22C and cold in the evening. Anyhow the white sandy beaches and the friendly people made...  more »
  • Cayo Rico is an island tiny to two hours of surfing (trimaran) from Cayo Largo, so small that you can walk in 10 minutes (or hours if lovers pictures like yours truly). The island has a bar/restaurant where you can enjoy a delicious Cuban lobster (with tomato sauce), which only opens during the excursions, and offers some umbrellas and deck chairs. It is inhabited exclusively by Jutias (very similar to our otters) and iguanas, little parenthesis should be open about the latter: iguanas are nearsighted so don't give them food because you don't discern the food from the hand and smelling, jumping and attack (as happened to myself and I still carry the sign ... ahahhah) [If you are thinking that I have got too close to my hand to his mouth think evil iguana has made a big jump ... don't be fooled by their slowness:D]. Back to tips interesting (no, I don't speak of my misadventures;D) sand is very fine and white sand, the sea is blue almost fluorescent and there is low tide so notable for one dive you need to walk and too much. Don't be put off by the two hours that are perfect because there is Cuban music, rum and cola unlimited, two stages snorkeling (a leg and one in the back) and then the trimaran is very pleasant and very much more of the catamaran! PS sunscreen (as they say in Naples) with shovel. total filter ... I burned with 35. Enjoy:)

Where to stay in Cayo Largo

Most accommodations on Cayo Largo sit on the south coast, not far from the beach. These consist of resorts, hotels, and private villas--expect a swimming pool, air-conditioned rooms, and complimentary breakfast. If you're after a slightly different scene, you can stay at a bed and breakfast at the center of the island, or an eco-lodge in the north.
