I went there with the catamaran ride which was very enjoyable. The island is pristine and it was a real joy to have a seafood feast while looking at the beautiful aqua colored sea. Tip the chef and you will get extra servings.

A wonderful catamaran ride to a sugary white sand beach. Go exploring and snorkel in the clear, warm water. Finally lunch. they give a choice of fish or chicken. Choose fish, it as actually delicious, fresh lobster. a must do, on your Cuban vacation.

A catamaran to Cayo Blanco is a must. If possible use a company that operates out of Varadero Marina as they are much bigger and spacious. This was my 2nd trip and this time stopped off for a Dolphin enclosure out at sea before there...More
