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.

Took a catamaran day trip from Varadero sea port. The program included snorkeling in the open sea near a coral reef, petting the dolphins in the see valley and 3 hours stay at Cayo Blanco beach. Snorkeling didn't impress that much as it does in the Red sea. Dolphins are all beautiful and petting them gave unforgettable impressions. Beautiful Cayo... More

If you want to see a real white sand beach like that one in tv commercials Cayo Blanco is for you. Don't forget your sunglasses though, it's really hard to see in the clear day.

We took the Catamaran tour out to this island. The whole tour included a short stop to snorkel, a visit at a dolphin enclosure and lunch on the island. First of all I didn't really enjoy the snorkelling it was short, there were too many people in the water and there really wasn't much to see. The dolphin enclosure was... More

I went to Cayo Blanco with the Catamaran experience. I was extremely disappointed with the beach. I went on this excursion primarily for the white sand beach and turquoise water but could not believe the amount of seaweed on the beach. It had an acrid odour and it was necessary to "wade" through the seaweed to get to the ocean.... More
