Cayo Coco, one of the jewels that make up the tiny island chain of Jardines del Rey (which translates as the King's Gardens) off Cuba's north coast, is the perfect Caribbean destination for anyone seeking a total escape from the strains of everyday life.
If you are looking for a luxurious place to stay, a world-class beach, warm seas, and very little else, then holidays in Cayo Coco are for you.
This sumptuously quiet part of the Caribbean is fairly isolated from Cuba, giving it a unique identity. Indeed, it wasn't until recent times that a man-made causeway - some 27 km long - was created to connect the dreamy islands to the mainland.
For those who manage to tear themselves away from the beach, however, there are opportunities to head out. If you fancy a different beach, take the bus up to Playa Pilar, which is often hailed as one of the best beaches in the world. And Moron - the nearest big town - is where to head if you fancy a livelier night out than you can otherwise will find in the beach hotels.
Some hotels will band together to lay on the occasional disco, and the local nightclub will throw open its doors a couple of nights a week, but this place knows that most visitors want little more than a few rums, some fresh seafood and sand between their toes.
It is worth keeping an eye out for the busy restaurants, though. Cuban food is often criticised as being bland but if you see where the discerning locals like to tuck in, then you'll know where the best grub is. Obviously, seafood is going to be a speciality in the Jardines del Rey, but meat lovers will adore the exquisite, slow-baked pork dishes. As many Cayo Coco holidays are sold as all-inclusive, it's worth heading out of your hotel to see what is on offer locally.
It is possible to hire cars from Cayo Coco Airport (CCC), but prices can vary dramatically so make sure you get the right deal.
