Walking on the beach
This is without any doubt one of the most popular activities in Cayo Largo. This island is truly a walker's paradise due to its 20 km of beach all along the south coastline! Walking is made easy by the fine white sand, which never get too hot. If you walk east from the hotels, you may have sometimes to go around some rocks when the beach becomes narrower. Going west of the resort the beaches are generally wider.

Since 2007, the watersport equipments are located in Playa Sirena where the sea is calmer than Playa Lindamar. A transportation is available from the hotels to Playa Sirena. You may find other water sports at the marina ($).
With the all-inclusive package, you can use bicycles for one hour per day per person. This is for all the hotels. Beware, it is possible the bicycles are not functioning properly of simply not existing in some hotels. It is not recommended to go to the west beaches due to the sandy trails.
Since December 2011, the Horseback Riding activity is no longer offered in Cayo Largo. The horses have left the island. They were returned to Pinar Del Rio on the main island of Cuba, except for the two older horses (Yaki and Paty Blanco) which have remained in Cayo Largo but won’t work anymore. This also means that the nice and cheerful Ramon lost its job in Cayo Largo. He was responsible for the Horseback riding since several years. We wish the best of luck to Ramon and hope that he will find a new job where he can again work with horses.
There are two crocodiles in a pond located at the Tower's garden. There is no fee to enter but you have to go there by yourself.
