The beaches are amazing, the food is delicious, the lobster it´s very good. A swim in its crystal clear waters with a mojito in hand is priceless! You can see the dolphins also.

Besides the breath taking beach, this place really needs to be cleaned up. There was a lot of trash, seaweed/seaplants, dead animals and etc all washed up all around the beach. We were taking to a place just right before we got onto the island for snorkeling and the place was filled with jellyfish. The tour guides said there was... More

We did a catamaran excursion to Cayo Blanco. It was an all day trip with an open bar, and snacks available on the boat.There was snorkeling before arriving at Cayo Blanco with plenty of tropical fish to be seen! This secluded island is definitely a must see place when visiting Cuba! The sand was the whitest, softest sand I've ever... More

A day trip by catamaran takes you from Varadero to a deserted island called Cayo Blanco which means White Island and a well deserved name since it has the whitest sand you could imagine. Lobster dinner is served on the island and you can swin for an hour before returning to the catamaran and back to Varadero.
