We really enjoyed the trip to this island. Beautiful white sand and clear blue seas. It really is worth a look... it really is the idea of paradise!

Cayo Saetia is a protected game reserve featuring antelope, ostrich, zebras, camels, lizards. The restaurant for lunch offered a very tasty buffet. there was a lovely beach with high cliffs and also the opportunity to horse-back ride. What amazed me was that the soil on the island was RED. It felt like home ( PEI ) !! We were told that it is also a place where Government officials go to holiday as there is a 12 room hotel.....but we did not go anywhere near it !! There is a heavier forested area as well as flat grassy wide open areas.....it has a real African Saffari feel to it !! Try it out!

This was by far the best day on our trip to Cuba! We took the catamaran to this beautiful island and stopped along the way to snorkel. Upon arrival we went on the jeep safari with a very friendly driver who gave us plenty of time to take pictures. Had a great lunch then spent an hour on the gorgeous beach! Great day trip!

As the last reviewer said, this is not a resort it is an excursion,day trip destination.
We booked this trip when we stayed at the PCV.On the day the weather looked a bit dodgy but our tour rep insisted that we would have a fantastic day. The drive through the countryside was excellent, but when we arrived at the catermaran dock the whole place looked so run down and desolate, we rounded a corner and there was our gleaming large catermaran waiting for us.
Soon as we stepped on board we were made to feel very welcome, the staff were all there to make sure we had a wonderful day. The weather took a turn for the better and for our 45 min sail to the Island we basked in glorious sunshine, with Cuban music playing in the background and drinks flowing. On the way to the Island we had a snorkel stop for half an hour in a small cove where we saw some beautiful fish.
Then on again to the Island, when we were pulling in to the jetty you could hear people going " oh wow" the place is stunning with the most beautiful beaches for you to lounge on, the sea was very warm and snorkeling off shore was a joy.Lunch was included in the beach hut, and water buffalo was on the menu as well as chicken/fish and lots of other choices, the food was lovely, There is a very large Iguana that comes for lunch when he sniffs the BBQ starting, so feed him a few scraps,There was options to go horse riding or off on a jeep tour,but we chose to stay on the wonderful beach and relax.
The journey back was just as nice as the outward one, and when we got back to dock we were so chilled out we were practically comatose.
Go on this trip, you will Love it, cost was about £65 each but worth every penny.
