Cayo Saetia Island, Holguin

(260+ reviews on the web)
Island
An idyllic, uninhabited 42 m sq (137 ft sq) island sitting a top a coral reef, Cayo Saetia Island offers a quirky paradise where zebras, parrots and ostriches live side by side. The cay used to be the private holiday home to Fidel Castro until 1994, when it became open to the public. Take a dip along crystal shores before a jeep tour takes you around the island to visit African safari animals that roam free here. Grab a relaxing, tasty lunch at the islands resort, under the shade of mangroves with picturesque views. Put Cayo Saetia Island into our Holguin travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • The excursion to Cayo Saetia was in Bus and Catamaran, the place is excellent! We sailed up to a Bay where we snorkel, then we disembarked in the Bay where gave us an excellent typical food of the place, we enjoyed the amazing beach with the best water I saw in Cuba and finally safari style African Jeep around the reserve, you can see different animals imported from Africa, no predators or snakes, also saw a family of Dromedaries , giraffes are no longer more! proper care personnel. The spacious catamaran and comfortable with open bar, food poor aboard! to improve this detail!
