4+ star resort without the price tag

by dankovic about Barcelo Cayo Largo Resort

The Barcelo Cayo Largo resort is a 4+ star resort, with lots of frills and activities on the grounds. The rooms are very clean, and equiped with all the necesities (fridge, tv, phone dryer, lamps etc). Great friendly staff that is constantly present and just waiting for you to start up a conversation with them. Lots of activities on site like ping pong tables, pool equiped with nets for waterpolo, basketball and volleyball court, jacuzzi, rent-a-bikes(to survey the little island), etc. as well as a free fast food restaurants open all day long. At the time I went in 2004 a huricanne blew away a lot of the sand from the beach right in front of the resort and exposed a lot of stone, although the beach was quite good nevertheless. So when we didnt want to go to that one there is a beach about 15 minutes away, with the little train, that was straight out of a dream (there was a free drinks bar there as well). The best thing on the beach was the catamaran ride, we went about a mile away in about 15 minutes, pretty cool. The only complaint is the fact that it is secluded so there isnt much of a nightlife, there is the standard nightly cabaret and the bars, so unless there is a large crowd of party people it may be a little dry.

Dentro de Cuba: un lugar que no se puede dejar de

by fga

CAYO LARGO: la pequeña isla cubana es una mezcla de edén bajado a la tierra con confort y posibilidades de practica de deportes acuaticos. Permite gozar de una estadia en convivencia armoniosa con la fauna, la flora y el sol caribeño.
Cayo Largo es una isla ubicada a 180 kilómetros al sur de La Habana. Es un lugar donde es posible extenderse de cara al cielo, en la arena fina y blanca, para gozar del sol. Es ideal una cabalgata o caminata durante la cual uno se encuentra rodeado de gaviotas y tortugas, colibríes y pelícanos o decida detenerse para darle de comer a alguna iguana. O bien, cerrar los ojos y verse sumergido en el mar turquesa, para contemplar los corales y peces multicolores.
Se puede elegir entre la tranquilidad y belleza de Playa Sirena, la amplitud de Playa Blanca, la intimidad de Lindamar. Playa Los Cocos tiene abundante sombra y restos de antiguos naufragios. Es posible hacer nudismo en Playa Paraíso o disfrutar de los corales y peces en Marina Cayo Largo del Sur.
Cayo Largo es la sede de importantes eventos como los Torneos de Pesca y las competencias de fotografia submarina. Hay servicios del Centro Internacional de Buceo y Marina para disfrutar, en los fondos de una barrera coralina de más de 30 kilómetros, donde se aprecia el coral negro.
Después de una extensa jornada de práctica de windsurf, esquí o snorkelling no existe nada mejor que descansar en las rústicas cabañas o bungalows de la isla.

Cayo Largo DIY Fishing Ban

by jfly

There is now a complete Do it Yourself fishing Ban on Cayo Largo.

There have been reports of harassment, equipment confiscation and fines for people caught fishing from shore.

The culprit is the Avalon Fishing Club who has bought exclusive fishing rights to the whole area.

You can fish with them for $3000 to $5000 for week

Don't go to Cayo Largo if you want to fish for fun

The information here is good, however it will either:-
Be deleted, because it is not a question.
Or
It will be lost as it vanishes down the travel forum.

May I suggest that you write it up as a travel tip, on your travel pages here at VT?
Once it is written up, it can be viewed by other members.

Choose the right beach for kids

by dabuwan

Not all Cayo Largo beaches are suitable for young kids. The beach in the resorts area is not. Playa Paraiso & Playa Sirena are the best choice. My 3 yo old daughter enjoyed playing in the water all day.
