Cayo Largo is an island in Cuba.

Get in[edit]

Vilo Acuña Airport with flights from Montreal, Toronto, Havana, Buenos Aires and Milan. The airport is located minutes from the village and hotel zone.

The nicest way to get to Cayo Largo is by boat.

Get around[edit]

Taxis cost 2 CUC/person to/from most locations on the island. From the marina or hotel zone to Playa Paraiso or Playa Sirena, expect to pay 4 CUC/person (negotiable). Full-size tour buses may operate as taxis when not needed for free services; be sure to check the vehicle's status when boarding.

Most hotels offer free shuttle service between hotel and marina (check front desk for schedule).

There is a free water shuttle between the Marina and Playa Sirena. Generally three runs every morning from Marina to beach, and three trips in the afternoon in the other direction.

Small jeeps and scooters are available for rent. Offices at Playa Blanca hotel and Sol Cayo Largo.

Some hotels have a limited number of bicycles for guests' use.

See[edit][add listing]

The main attraction of Cayo Largo is that there are very few attractions.

Almost all excursions (offered through guests' package-tour companies) are related to scuba, snorkelling, fishing, visiting small nearby islets etc.

On the island itself, the village where the Marina is located has a sea-turtle hatchery, Casa del Habano cigar store, small bowling alley, bank, gift shop, tiny museum (ask Villa Marinera hotel front desk about access) and a plaza with souvenir vendors. In the hotel zone is a nursery with a pet iguana and crocodile.

La Yana, a tree reputed to be over 600 years old, is located on the road between the hotel zone and Playa Paraiso.

Otherwise, it's all beaches, beaches and more beaches, many of them remote and with absolutely no facilities, and so with very few visitors.

Playa Sirena is the largest and most popular off-resort beach. It has a full range of services, including restaurant, bar, toilets, changing area, on-beach bar service, lounge chairs and non-motorized water sports.
