The first person to land on it was the French pirate Jacques de Sores, after his assaults to Havana and Port-au-Prince. Later, in 1752, here landed the first landowner of the island, a Spanish named Santiago Abuero Castañeda. Between 1927 and 1955, around 600 people tried to make a living from charcoal production, but after the Revolution the sector didn’t make sense anymore due to the use of electric power. In 1988, Coco Cay was finally communicated to the main island by an elevated road 27 kilometers length.

Despite the beauty of its beaches, after the 1990s Cayo Coco was only a mangrove full of mosquitoes. It was then when the first hotel in the area was built, in Guillermo Cay, and since then the construction of urbanizations hasn’t stopped.

The island is regarded as a natural tourist park, which urbanization is in the north, so the rest of the island remains natural. Its main attraction are its wonderful fine-grained sand and crystalline waters beaches, being the most spectacular Las Coloradas, Playa Larga Beach, El Paso, Playa Flamencos Beach and Playa Pilar Beach. Another attraction are the sea beds of the island, which you’ll be able to discover thanks to the several diving centers and hotels that guarantee the benefit of their privileged natural surroundings.
