While beautiful in terms of nature, Cayo Coco is hardly part of typical Cuba. These islands are isolated from the mainland, connected only by a man-made causeway several kilometers long. Access is controlled by a security checkpoint.
A visit to Morón [] is a good way to see more of what Cuba really is like. Taxi drivers can organize inexpensive tours for groups of 4-5 people which may include visiting a country farmhouse.
The language spoken in Cuba(Cayo Coco) is spanish. Cubans have free education and you will often find a Cuban able to speak many languages but sometimes not fluently. Most employees of all inclusive hotel understand and speak a basic english. outside of resorts, you may have some difficulties to communicate if you don`t understand of speak a little bit of spanish.
Many airlines and charters fly to Cayo Coco airport, Jardines del rey(king`s garden). From Canada, you have Air Canada, Sunwing, Air Transat and Canjet that provides the service from many Canadian cities.
Several hotels - all "all-inclusive", most operated by foreign companies (mainly Sol Melia):
