Cayo Guillermo - Hemingway‘s Vacation Island

Cayo Guillermo: A dreamlike island with snow white paradise beaches and the tallest sand dunes in the Caribbean. It was here, where author Ernest Hemingway used to spend his lovely vacation to find his inspiration. And you can also find an overwhelming play for the eyes when you see the turquoise crystal clear water hit the fine snow white sand.

The Island of Inspiration...

Overview

Cayo Guillermo

Cayo Guillermo is an about 15 km² large island in the Atlantic ocean and is connected to the slightly bigger neighbor island Cayo Coco by several stone dams.

Cayo Guillermo also belongs to the smallest islands of the ‘Jardines del Rey’ archipelago of the province Ciego de Ávila, which is located in the center of Cuba.

The white sandy beaches and the turquoise sea of Cayo Guillermo don’t only invite you in for a swim or to have a longer walk at the seaside, no, they are also perfect for snorkeling and diving! And nature lovers can make interesting discoveries in the channels of the island’s mangrove areas!

Travel Details

Arrival                                                                                                       

You can reach Cayo Guillermo by taking a direct flight from Havana to Cayo Coco.

The transfer from Cayo Coco to a hotel on Cayo Guillermo takes approximately 40 minutes.

The island is reachable by car, but also by boat by crossing the Border and Yacht Port Cayo Guillermo.

The Island

Cayo Guillermo has three beaches with a total of 4 km length with calm water, of which Playa Pilar stands out due to its especially beautiful scenery. The tallest dunes of the insular Caribbean are located here. They reach a height of up to 15 meters.

In the northern part of the island you can find a snow white sandy beach that stretches out for many kilometers and basically invites you in to have a swim.

The coral reefs just off the shore are perfect for diving and snorkeling and the well-equipped Marina and diving base make it even easier.

Hotels on Cayo Guillermo

The area on Cayo Guillermo that was developed mainly for tourists has four hotel complexes that are located right next to each other in the north eastern corner at the Atlantic seaside. The beach Playa Pilar, which is also located in the north, is accessible from the hotel complexes.

Trips

In the southern part of the island there is a fascinating mangrove landscape that can be explored by boat.

In specific areas, snorkeling trips are also possible here.
