Cayo Guillermo

Cayo Guillermo Just west of Cayo Coco is Cayo Guillermo, a much smaller coral key connected to Cayo Coco by a causeway. The mangroves off the south coast of Cayo Guillermo are home to pink flamingos and pelicans, and there’s a great diversity of tropical fish and crustaceans on the key’s Atlantic reef. This was a favorite fishing spot of US writer Ernest Hemingway, who mentioned Cayo Guillermo in his book Islands in the Stream. From virgin beaches to modern resorts, and whether you want to stay in five star luxury or would just like to find a quiet place to hang your hammock, Cayo Guillermo is 13 kilometers (8.1 miles) long and has five beaches.

Cayo Guillermo is probably the number one sportfishing destination in Cuba. The deep-sea fishing facilities are good, and several freshwater lakes on the mainland are within commuting distance.
