It is possible to forget about the time, spending days in unforgettable dives and relaxing siestas on the snow-white beaches. Cayo Largo is located at the south-central region of Cuban Archipelago. It is practically one of the last virgin areas on our planet. The island got its name for the prolonged shape. Approximately in 1494 admiral Christopher Columbus arrived here during his second trip to Cuba.
