Take a break from your hectic schedule and unwind on a relaxing holiday to Cayo Coco. Located on the archipelago of Jardines del Rey, just off the north coast of Cuba, you won’t find many places more exotic and blissful than this dreamy Cuban resort. Jardines del Rey literally translates as ‘King’s Gardens’, giving you an idea of just how beautiful the surrounding area of the resort is. So grab a cocktail and take a moment to just picture yourself there.
Everywhere you turn in Cayo Coco, you’ll find immaculate white sand beaches with swaying green palms and dazzling azure seas. It would be very tempting to just lay back and soak up the sun all day, occasionally dipping into a good book or sipping on a cocktail. But Cayo Coco is famous for its excellent water sports, so why not try your hand at some while you’re there?
The coral reef off the coast of Cuba is one of the biggest in the world, so take the opportunity to delve deep below the crystal clear waters and see the colourful marine life for yourself. Try snorkelling if you fancy staying close to the surface of the water. If you’d prefer a more immersive experience, hire some scuba diving equipment and explore the ocean floor.
Cuba may well be the largest of the Caribbean islands, but it certainly still has the same cool, calm and laid-back vibe that the Caribbean is so famous for. Having said that, Cubans sure know how to party. If you don’t want to stay in one place on your holiday, you can try incredible food, drink and parties in various hotels along the beaches of Cayo Coco. You can also make the journey along the causeway linking Cayo Coco to the mainland and enjoy the local culture of Morón.
