The Jardines del Rey gets this curious name from Colonial times, specifically from 1513 and 1514, when the Spanish, led by Don Diego Velázquez, christened the archipelago with this name, in honor of the monarch Fernando El Católico, opposite to those in the southern provinces, which were already then known as the Jardines de La Reina in honor of Queen Isabel. What’s more, it set the scene for many battles amongst pirates and privateers, the same place in which groups of fishers have settled down and whose role has continued developing since the 80s as one of the main reception points for tourists on the island.

This ensemble of around ten islets, the famous Cuban Cayos (Keys), boats the marvellous characteristics you often see on Caribbean postcards, where the transparent blue waters and near-white sands create a wholly idyllic environment. Among the islets, you’ll find some with great renown across the entire island., such as Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo, Cayo Romano and Cayo Sabinal, all joined by their characteristic embankments.

On each of these, you’ll find the perfect conditions needed as much for relaxing as enjoying yourself to the best of your ability, as there is no lack of opportunity to take part in aquatic sports and many other diverse activities while you take in the beautiful landscape that surrounds you. What’s more, the wonderful wilderness that characterizes the archipelago are very worthy of taking a good look at, in which you’ll find a combination of a spectacular vegetation, waters chock-full of treasures such as coral reefs and a rich fauna, much of it indigenous, where reptiles, exotic birds and gorgeous flamingos will leave you speechless.

Although in order to reach any of the cayos, you can take highway routes that seem to float above the sea and that link one to the other, you can also do it by air, since the archipelago has its very own Jardines del Rey Airport. So, one way or another, you will be able to access this wonderful place to discover its charming natural elements, certain that you’ll have an utterly delightful experience.
