Cayo Guilllermo

Just returned from trip to Cayo Guillermo, one of the small 'islands/cayos' off Cuba's northern coast. Stayed at Gran Caribe/Villa Cojimar.
Cayo Guillermo is part nature reserve, and as the island has been developed especially for tourism there are no cubans living there - there are only a few hotels (four I think). The Cuban workers are bussed in every day to work at the resorts. All the resorts, I believe, are all inclusive, and although you are perhaps not seeing the 'real' Cuba, it is a beautiful Caribbean destination worth visiting, particularly as the prices seem cheaper to visit Cuba compared to other Caribbean countries.

    Im heading to Villa Cojimar in Oct 2006. Thanks for the insight. Is there anywhere where the water is deep in the ocean?
