The Jardines del Rey (Gardens of the King) Archipelago lies just off the northern coast of Ciego de Ávila Province and is part of the Sabana-Camagüey Archipelago, the longest of the four archipelagos near the island of Cuba and the one with more of 2500 cays and islets.
Governor Diego Velázquez named this archipelago Jardines del Rey (Gardens of the King) in honor of Ferdinand the Catholic, of Spain, in 1514. Now, more than 500 years later, this island group still has new things for you to discover.

Coco and Guillermo Cays, two of the jewels in this necklace of islands, have great natural beauty. Here, comforts of the modern world have been added carefully, to complement and protect the environment. Paredon Grande (Big Wall)-the smallest of these cays, but in no way inferior to the others-is about to be developed for tourism.

The attraction that the Jardines del Rey (Gardens of the King) Archipelago has for tourists is reinforced by exceptionally beautiful natural components: its wealth of birds (over 200 species live in the area) and the high degree of conservation of its sea and land ecosystems.

If you’re coming directly from Europe or another part of the Americas, you’ll come through Jardines del Rey International Airport, in Cay Coco, only 15 minutes from Cay Coco hotels and 35 minutes from Cay Guillermo Hotels. You can come by sea, using the facilities of the Cay Guillermo marina.
