Holidays to Cayo Coco
The shimmering tropical island of Cayo Coco is a fantasy of palm groves, powder-white beaches and shallow, warm aquamarine waters. The fourth largest island of the Cuban archipelago, Cayo Coco package holidays take you to a luxurious island resort, with thatched bungalows reminiscent of the Maldives. Yet booked last minute, Cayo Coco holidays are surprisingly affordable. We at Coop Travel have bargain holidays to Cayo Coco that are a slice of pure paradise.
Cayo Coco holidays offer exclusivity on a grand scale. A lush, low-lying nature reserve that’s home to a rich variety of tropical plants and animals, a Cayo Coco holiday offers over 15 miles of pristine white sands, caressed by safe, tranquil waters. Fringed by the coconut palms that the island is named after, Cayo Coco beaches are all about relaxing and unwinding.
When you book late deals to Cayo Coco, you’ll quickly discover that scuba diving is the most popular pastime. More akin to the Indian Ocean than the Atlantic, the waves are calmed by the world's second largest coral reef, home to a rich variety of tropical marine life. Cayo Coco holidays are also popular with bird watchers, who come here for the exotic birdlife – in particular, the vast flock of flamingos; one of the world’s largest. With pelicans, humming birds, flying fish and iridescent butterflies all vying for attention, a Cayo Coco holiday offers the chance to truly get back to nature. If you want a more active holiday, walk along the causeway to Cayo Guillermo, where you’ll find crystal clear diving waters and a range of water sports activities.
Unlike some island resorts, cheap holidays don’t leave you feeling claustrophobic. Cayo Coco is the second largest Cuban resort after Varedero, and joined to the Cuban mainland by causeway. To see Cuba’s natural heritage to its best, we at Coop Travel suggest visiting the beautiful Caguanes National park and Laguna de Leche – Cuba’s largest freshwater lake.
