The history of Cayo Blanco goes back to 1972 when Fidel Castro, during a visit to Berlin, decided to honor his hosts in a symbolic way with some of its cays. Concretely, Blanco Cay of the South became Ernest Thaelmann Cay, as a homage to the leader of the German Communist Party which during the 20s and 30s opposed to Hitler, who years later jailed and executed him.

The only way to visit Blanco Cay is by hiring a tour from the coast on board of a zodiac or a little boat, since are the only two ones which do not take the risk of getting stuck in the bottoms.
