Lounge on the tropical beaches of Cayo Guillermo, a cay in Cuba's Jardines del Rey archipelago. The laid-back vibe of the small island attracts visitors, who come for the pristine stretches of sand that are hailed as some of the best beaches in Cuba. Swim and snorkel in the clear, turquoise waters, or sunbathe on the warm white sand. In addition to a couple of resorts, the cay supports a few local restaurants that serve traditional Cuban cuisine.

  • we stayed at Melia Cayo Guillermo We had a brilliant time, everyone one was friendly all staff were really good to us. We made friends with the animation team they are really cool guys, they played volleyball Zumba classes dance classes and many more thinks to keep you entertain from 10am to 11pm. After you can go with them to a discotheque that is only 5 minutes walk you pay $5pesos and you get a free drink. We also were very lucky on our last day the guys took us to a concert in the beach in the next hotel which was brilliant and we saw how the locals enjoyed themselves. Only one thing I recommend do not forget a lot of mosquitos repellent , sun lotion and after sun .
  • Beautiful Island off main island of Cuba. Just resorts here. No locals except employees. Great if you want to relax and hang. Not much excitement. Great beaches.
