If you are undecided about your next holiday destination, look at a single picture of Pestana Cayo Coco and all your problems are solved. In one of the most beautiful and emblematic beaches of the island - the Playa de los Flamengos - you will get into the caribbean spirit immediately when the warm breeze envelops you, while landing in Jardines del Rey. It is impossible to remain serious or frustrated when the environment is so extraordinary. Enter the bus that will take you to paradise and leave all worries behind.
Upon arriving at the Pestana Cayo Coco, a refreshing drink will help you stabilize the temperature, while a welcoming dance sets you to the rhythm that will determine your days here. The mambo and rumba are ubiquitous, spawning the famous Cuban "son" and it will be hard not to rehearse at least a dance step over the days. After checking in, you will be led to your room through the beautiful gardens where royal poincianas, cacti, palm trees and many other luxurious and colorful species add an exotic note.
For those who want total local immersion, you can take a taxi or call a typical old car to go through the incredible link between Cuba and Cayo Coco, built in the middle of the ocean, in broad Bay of Los Perros where you can see flocks of flamingos resting and the incredible shades of the sea at different depths. On moonless and cloudless nights, you almost feel like you can touch the million stars which fill the sky and your life with a magical and impressive atmosphere. If you're hungry, in your individual explorations, Cayo has several ranchóns where you can taste delicious Creole food. If you have the opportunity to taste a potaje of garbanzo, with meat and malanga, it is guaranteed that it will be an unforgettable meal. You can also explore the surroundings of Cayo and, perhaps, even go to Havana or schedule trips to visit the crocodile park or take the bus to go to the beautiful Play del Pilar and visit a local market.
On the sea that stretches as far as the eye can see, there is much to explore. This area is protected by an extensive coral reef, perfect for snorkelling, sailing and kite surfing. At the hotel, the nautical center offers kayaks, hobie cats and paddle boats for you to reach the coral area. But there are also sea safaris on catamaran, with guides, to go even further and discover unique and completely unexplored corners. There are spaces where you will insistently remember Pirates of the Caribbean.
Spacious, full of light and decorated with the typically Caribbean navy and coral blue. The rooms have spacious-suite rooms and have enough closets and drawers for you to feel that you have all the storage under control. Discover everything the Pestana Cayo Coco has to offer.
Huge pools immediately call the attention of the little ones, as there is a baby corner, an area for children and a deeper area for adults to take a dip. Shadows and loungers surround this space, with a very inviting swim-up bar, where you can order a drink at any time. In fact, several bars are open throughout the day, so you never feel thirsty or hot. The snack bar is open 24 hours a day, in case you miss one of the main meals at the buffet restaurant or at the theme restaurants. Creole, Portuguese and Italian can be your choice to make the night even more special. But the buffet also has different themes: Cuban, Oriental, Mexican, Portuguese, Italian, gala and fusion are the theme for each night of the week.
You can take advantage of the gym with a free PT, or the tennis and basketball courts. At the Pestana Cayo Coco, whether you stay on the right side, in the huts' area, where music and animation keep everyone in a festive spirit, or you go to the left, where tranquility reigns and the vast turquoise sea awaits for your company, the best is to live and fully enjoy every environment, you can spend the whole day at the beach, since the huts with pizza, roast pork sandwiches and a mini buffet are placed at the entrance, so you do not miss even one second of sun nor a sea dive.
Pestana Tip: The links are not always reliable, so the ideal is to bring money in cash to be able to exchange at the hotel. All hotel activities are included, but if you want to explore the surroundings, you will need convertible Cuban pesos and not always can be purchased with credit card. Although Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel, this is only accessible via cards with passwords that can be used for two hours (non-continuous). It is essential to log out whenever you use the card, otherwise the two hours will be consumed and you will have to purchase another card. You can buy as many cards you want at the hotel, but the links are not always available and are certainly slower than you're used to. Use an adapter for the USA in all electronic devices.
