Cayo Coco is a beautiful tropical paradise just off northern central Cuba. Its known for its gorgeous, powdery soft white sand beaches which stretch for kilometers.
The 400-kilometer-long coral reef that stretches along the archipelago creates very calm beaches, crystal-clear waters and excellent scuba diving and snorkeling. The reef is thought of as one of the major reefs in the world, behind the Australian Great Coral Wall.
The natural features of the island include lagoons and marshes that are home to birds and a colony of pink flamingos that’s ranked among the largest in the Americas.
Both Cayo Coco and nearby Cayo Guillermo are connected to the main island of Cuba by a 17-kilometer causeway. With the new Jardines del Rey International Airport, travel time to your hotel is greatly reduced and ranges from 15 to 25 minutes depending on which resort you’re staying at.Temperatures in Cayo Coco are amazingly consistent throughout the year, ranging from mid-20 Celsius to the low 30 Celsius in the summer months. However, during the winter months from January through March, a light sweater or long sleeve shirt is sometimes needed for the cooler evenings. The rainy season usually runs from April through June and the hurricane season runs from June through September or early October so you’re wise to double check its status before making your travel plans.
