Village « Isla del Sol » or « Pueblito »

There is a small village called « El Pueblito » by the Cuban located in the North-West of the island, about 8 km from the hotel zone.

In the village, you will find the rooms where the workers live during their twenty days work then followed by ten days off at their home mostly in Havana or Isla de la Juventud.

There is no Cuban living permanently in Cayo Largo. Sometimes you may see a large group of workers during new constructions.

It is worth seeing the village and enjoy a cold beer at the « Taberna del Pirata », a nice place near the marina. The prices for drinks or meals are very affordable. A soda, a beer and a pizza for 3 CUC, unbeatable!
