Cayo Coco and
Cayo Guillermo form part of the Sabana-Camagüey island
group, just off the northern coast of Ciego de Avila Province.
Because of its spectacular natural beauty, this region is
known as Jardines del Rey.
The area is noted for the diversity of its seascapes, the
transparence of its water, the excellent quality of its sand
and the captivating enchantment of its coral reefs. You can
see sand dunes up to 15 meters (49 feet) high, large rocky
ledges and cliffs from three kilometers (almost two miles)
Beaked fish and many other species prized by fishermen abound
in its waters. Attractive seafaring and excursions include
tours to the beaches, lighthouses and nearby Cayo Media Luna
is particularly enticing. From the Puertosol Marina, you can
also sail the same sail the same route as Ernest Hemingway
did; go in for water sports or take a ride in a motorboat.
The Jardines del Rey International Scuba Diving Center offers
scuba diving courses at all levels and awards internationally
recognized certificates. In addition, the marina has a tourist
complex and offers a safe harbor for yachtsmen coming through
the Viejo Canal de Las Bahamas (Old Bahamas Channel) and nearby
