Cayo Cruz Cuba Resorts

Cayo Cruz

Havana, Cuba

What to do in Cayo Cruz?


Due to being located off the northern coast of Cuba, Cayo Cruz is an excellent place to go snorkeling. The cape has an abundance of beaches and reefs spread across its coastline, giving its visitors easy access to prime snorkelling areas no matter where they are on the cape. You’ll likely spend most of your time in Cayo Cruz at many of its famous beaches, so snorkeling can be a fun way to mix up some of your trips to the beach.

Cayo Cruz Fishery

Cayo Cruz is mostly known for its abundance of beaches and hotels, however, the marine park that surrounds Cayo Cruz is also quite popular among fishing enthusiasts. The fishery is right off the coast of Cayo Cruz and takes up over 350 square kilometers in area. Here, you can catch tons of exotic creatures like mutton snapper and barracuda.

Rocarena Climbing Center

The Rocarena Climbing Center is located in Cayo Coco (another Cape close to Cayo Cruz). The facility first opened in May 2015 and has continued to provide fun for the whole family ever since. The Rocarena Climbing Center has a multilevel hexagonal structure for all ages to climb, bungee jumping, zip lines, and even a giant swing. It’s a great place to take a day trip, especially if you’re traveling with kids.

What to see in Cayo Cruz?

Jardines del Rey

Jardines del Rey, which translates to “The King’s Gardens,” is the name of the archipelago Cayo Cruz belongs to. The archipelago encompasses many capes, islands, and cays including Cayo Coco, Cayo Romano, and Cayo Sabinal. You can spend days travelling along the coasts of Jardines del Rey and take in all of the picturesque views and unique landscapes.

Camagüey’s Cinema Street

If you’re in Cayo Cruz but are getting sick of the beaches, you should consider taking a day trip to the city of Camagüey. The city has a very different atmosphere than Cayo Cruz, but that just makes the trip all the more worthwhile. Once you’re there, be sure to check out Cinema Street, an area of Camaguey that’s sure to interest any movie buff. The street has 5 cinemas and multiple cafes and shops dedicated to paying homage to the film industry. Cinema Street is a good representation of Camagüey’s uniqueness.

Casino Campestre Park

This park is also located in the city of Camagüey and acts as a good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Casino Campestre Park is littered with beautiful trees and historical statues and monuments, which makes for a very different experience from what you’d get on Cayo Cruz’s beaches. This attraction by itself may not be worth a trip to Camagüey, but if you’re already taking a trip to the city, Casino Campestre is definitely worth a visit.

Where to stay in Cayo Cruz?

Melia Cayo Coco

With rooms spread across a stunning lagoon, this 18+ all-inclusive resort is the ideal place for weddings and honeymoons. Melia Cayo Coco offers its guests direct beach access and top of the line accommodations, much like many other all-inclusive resorts. Unlike other resorts, however, the Melia Cayo Coco provides its guests with the option of staying in a room that’s elevated with stilts and sits on top of the lagoon completely detached from any other buildings. These rooms radiate a gorgeous white which contrasts nicely with the sand and water.

Valentin Cayo Cruz

Valentin Cayo Cruz is another 18+ all-inclusive resort, but this time, it’s located directly in Cayo Cruz. This resort is only an hour’s drive away from Cayo Coco International Airport and is a perfect place to stay if you hate large crowds. Cayo Cruz is a relatively new tourist destination, which means there aren’t that many attractions or hotels in the area yet. This has made the Valentin Cayo Cruz a very convenient yet secluded place to stay during your visit.

Pullman Cayo Coco

This all-inclusive resort is great for those who are travelling with kids and/or like to spend a lot of their vacation in the resort itself. Pullman Cayo Coco offers its guests a ton of different amenities that will keep you busy for days such as an outdoor pool, tennis court, children’s playground, and even free bikes. The resort also has water sports facilities, windsurfing, and diving, but these all require additional charges.
