The hotel is poor, don't stay there, however, the island is definitely worth a day trip. A beautiful sandy beach, almost no people, the chance to either relax in the loneliness of the place, swim in the beautiful sea or to walk the cost and encounter different kinds of animals is an experience beyond words.

We were staying in Pina del Rio and went here for a day trip. We had a great day. The beach is very clean and not crowded at all (enough beds to choose from). You go there by ferry in the morning and then take the afternoon ferry at 17:00 back. There is not much to see, so it really... More

a good chill out place if you are the gin by the pool type of person. Average food at the restaurant. We expected more seafood. The best part was the drive from Vinales through very picturesque country

Cayo Levisa is only acessible by ferry, and the landing site is hidden away down a typically rough road through a plantation. This serves as a perfect smokescreen for the beauty beyond. After a short boat ride over a crystal clear lagoon (very tempted to dive over) you find the 'resort' - it is divided into several bungalows, and from... More

Probably the best beach of Cuba, a little paradise. Having said that, staying on the Cajo is very expensive so we choose to do day trips - its only one our away from Vinales by car. The beach is very clean and long - great for walks. Strangely we were not even charged to use the beach chairs. There are... More

This small island is situated in the Los Colorados Archipelago by the northwest coast of Cuba, some 150 km and some 2 hours by car from Havana. The road is not very good so be prepared for slow driving, but not so bad so you can get a car broken. It is well signed from highway Havana-Vinales, and then just... More

We booked a day trip to Cayo Levisa the day before from the tour office in Vinales. About 28CUC per person including a sandwich and fruit juice for lunch. We went by bus to the boat and took the ferry across the island. As previous reviewers have said this is a tourist only beach. We didn’t want to snorkel or... More

It is the second time in three years I visit the islands, and yes it is beautiful. Beaches forever, mangroves, turquoise warm waters. Snorkeling is fun too, you go out with a boat and park by the corals for an hour. But be warned, it is a place only for tourists ( you need your passport as Cubans are not... More

You can scuba dive the house reef at 11:45 AM. The ferry arrives at 10:30 AM. The dive boat leave at 9 AM for other dive sites. This mean that you as a day-tourist can't dive the external/outer dive sites :-( Jorn S. Larsen (Denmark)

We were out of high season and it was very quiet - even the day trippers didn't make much of a crowd. Takes half hour to walk beach end to end, very clean. Minimal but sufficient activities for a ~3day stay. Snorkelling 18CUC for shared boat ride and 1 hr in water with divers and other snorkelers. Reef visibility clear,... More
