Cayo Largo Cuba Travel Agency, The Canarreos Archipelago whose high level of conservation
and diversity of resources are its main potentials for tourism lies along
the southwestern coast of the island of Cuba.
The gem of this group, which consists of around 300 keys, is Cayo Largo
del Sur, a long, thin islet whose greatest width is 6,5 km (four miles)
across and whose narrowest point is just a little over half a mile wide.
Everyone who has seen its 27 km (nearly 17 miles) of beaches describes
it as "out of this world."
Prestigious specialized publications such as the National Geographic
have said that the seabed near Cayo Largo del Sur is one of the best-preserved
on earth-the truth of which can be confirmed by diving at any of the 33
scuba-diving sites near the cay. Bird watching in its large mangrove swamps
is also very rewarding.
The Puertosol Marinas chain (international free ports) also offers facilities
for fishing; living on board; and sailing around the islet, neighboring
cays-Rosario, Rico, Cantiles and Iguana-and the Isle of Youth, where you
can save time by flying from Vilo Acuņa International Airport. Dubbed
"the All-Inclusive island," Cayo Largo del Sur now has more than 1000
rooms in inviting hotels and villas.
Cayo Largo del Sur has 27 km (nearly 17 miles) of fine white sandy beaches.
Some of the seven beaches on this islet-such as Paradiso (Paradise) and
Lindamar (Pretty Sea) are very intimate; Blanca (White) Beach is protected
by crags, and turtles come ashore to lay their eggs on Tortuga (Turtle)
Beach. The sand on Sirena (Siren) Beach never gets uncomfortably hot,
no matter how strong the sun may be, and colonies of coral are easy to
find near it at a depth of 35 m (115 feet) Cayo Largo Cuba Travel Agency.
