Welcome to our website dedicated to the small and quiet Cuban island paradise of Cayo Largo! Online since February 2000, cayolargo.net has become the web's most complete source of information about Cayo Largo in Cuba.
Cayo Largo del Sur, known simply as Cayo Largo, is a natural paradise where you can feel a little like Robinson Crusoe on a deserted remote island far away from city life! This tiny island is located in the Caribbean sea, East of the Youth island.
An almost virgin island for people who like nature and are looking for a non-commercial quiet place away from massive tourism. Cayo Largo is unique in many ways!
There is a real easy-going, down-to-earth and friendly atmosphere in Cayo Largo, this is probably why the destination has also always been known to be gay friendly.
Cayo Largo is one of the few places in Cuba where you will find hotels with C.O. beaches to enjoy an « Au Natural » suntan. Live and let live! If you are looking for a party like ambiance, hectic nightlife, shopping malls, fancy restaurants or worse ... A McDonald, you will be terribly disappointed and SHOULD NOT consider going to Cayo Largo! But, if you are looking for tranquillity, a relaxed atmosphere, an unpretentious comfort, or search for endless gorgeous virgin beaches... Then Cayo Largo might be for you!
