Located in In the southern coast of Cuba "Cayo Largo del Sur" is the best jewel in the "Canarreos Archipelago". Prestigious specialized publications such as National Geographic have said that its seabed is one of the best-preserved on Earth. This long and narrow 37 kilometer island has 27 kilometers of serene beaches and 32 scuba-diving sites.

Known simply as "Cayo Largo" the island is an idyllic paradise of peace and serenity. The beaches merge gently into waters that run from lightest green through turquoise and jade to deep cobalt far out. Its ultra-fine sand´s texture and unique crystalline structure prevents from getting too hot, no matter how strong the sun may be.  The Key is the perfect destination for immersion in an environment of fascinating coral formations, tunnels, steep walls covered with gorgonians and a wealth of multicolored marine life. Cayo Largo also treasures a rich fauna among them birds, butterflies, iguanas, crabs, and as the rest of the country there are no dangerous to man.
