The central part of the country has many attractions, especially along the northern coast. It is there that you will find the heavenly little islands of the Archipelago of Camagüey and Santa Lucia, with its long, fine-sand beaches washed by emerald waters.

Cayo Coco

One of the largest islands in the Archipelago of Camagüey, Cayo Coco is gradually becoming one of Cuba's principal tourist regions. The main attractions of this island off the Atlantic coast are its white sand beaches and crystalline waters ranging in colour from blue to turquoise.

A spectacular 17-kilometre stretch of road runs through the marshes to Cayo Coco. Although there are legends about this region having been a pirate haunt, Cayo Coco looked like a desert island before the tourist industry began developing in the early 1980s. Its superb beaches, emerald waters and marshy landscapes make for a worry-free stay that is sure to leave you well rested.

The development of the local tourist industry worries environmentalists, however. The construction of numerous hotel complexes is bound to have an impact on the fragile ecosystem of this nearly pristine territory. To learn more about this subject, you can venture off the tourist track and visit the Centro de Investigación de Ecosystems Costeros, located at the entrance to Cayo Coco, near the kiosk. Administered by the Cuban Ministry of Science, this centre studies Cayo Coco's ecosystem in order to ensure its protection.
