Cuba’s Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo


Photo Feature by Juan Suarez

HAVANA TIMES — We paid a visit to the keys north of Ciego de Avila in the resort area known as Jardines del Rey, which includes Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo. The popular tourist destination has exuberant vegetation, exotic birds, a colony of pink flamingos, and one of the best beaches in the country, Playa Pilar.

    I was able to enjoy the Cayos’ views of exquisite waterfowl and songbirds while on a birding tour, last year. I found the construction of yet more new resorts and infrastructure to be a huge disappointment, however, and can’t help but envision how this massive development will ecologically compromise what is surely one of Cuba’s most precious wildlife jewels.

    Yes of course staying on a beach at a hotel gives you little to none interaction
    with the real life or vibe of where you are visiting. When time permits we will vacation in another manner…. But when we have one or two weeks to vacation away from our bitter winter, it is more of a relax vacation. We always get of the beat and track on our own or with a private tour guide. It would be difficult for us not to explore a bit. Still nothing wrong with relax and recharge either. Looking forward to the time in our life that will allow a leisurely pace, staying at Casa Particulares and just exploring…….
