Welcome to our website dedicated to Cayo Coco, online since 2004. As Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo share the same airport, we also added into this website all the information regarding its sister island, Cayo Guillermo.
These islands are located in the Northern part of Cuba, in the Atlantic Ocean. This destination is known for its many kilometers of pristine beaches of fine white sand. The sea is calm, shallow and crystal clear waters of a beautiful turquoise blue. It is an oasis of peace for nature lovers, beach, family and relaxation.
Cayo Coco is an island with an area of 370 km2, the second largest in size after its neighbor Cayo Romano (465 km2) located East, connected with the island of Cayo Paredon Grande by small bridges, known for its lighthouse and its nice beach. There is an ongoing project to develop this island. They are all part of a group of several islands called Jardines Del Rey (King's Gardens in English) and which itself is part of a bigger archipelago called « Sabana-Camaguey ». The Spaniards named the archipelago Jardines del Rey in 1513 in honor of Ferdinand the Catholic. The little island of Cayo Guillermo (thirteen square kilometers) is located west of Cayo Coco and is considered to be the little sister of Cayo Coco.
