Cayo Coco is a small island located at the northern coast of Cuba, in the central province of Ciego de Avila. Along with its neighboring keys (Cayo Guillermo and Cayo Romano), it is part of a chain of islands called the Jardines del Rey (King’s Gardens) archipelago. Spanish Conqueror Diego Velazquez named it Jardines del Rey in honor of the Spanish King Fernando the Catholic. These keys are connected to the main island of Cuba by a aproximatelly 27km causeway.
Cayo Coco is uninhabited (no villages, no cities, and no farms). About 85% of Cayo Coco is covered with vegetation, with more than 200 species of birds, including a large colony of flamingos.
The powdery white sand bathed by crystal-clear turquoise waters and the excellent tropical environment make this beach-resort a perfect place to enjoy safe swimming and long walks on the beach. Offshore coral reef platforms protect the beaches from high surf and every beach has many shallow areas created by the sand dunes. These calm waters are great for families with young children, and also to enjoy all-kinds of water sports.
Most of the all-inclusive hotels in Cayo Coco are directly on the beach and offer a lot of services for tourists spend a great stay. The most popular activities in the Jardines del Rey archipelago include: Water sports, fishing, kite surfing, diving, swimming with dolphins, and of course relaxing on the beach.
