Plenty of family-friendly resort options
The island of Cayo Largo will be home to 11 resorts rebuilt or beautifully renovated and rebranded as Grand Memories Resorts & Spa, Memories Resorts & Spa, Starfish Resorts and Villa properties that families will love. The beachfront Starfish Cayo Largo offers family-friendly amenities including a kids pool and Baby Club for the little ones, plus a white-sand beach with clear, shallow waters that mini-vacationers won’t get enough of. For added luxury during their stay, families can book a stay at Grand Memories Cayo Largo, featuring lavish amenities and Diamond Club room categories offering exclusive amenities and services for an elevated family vacation.
Discover the island’s unique attractions
While Varadero gets much of the well-deserved acclaim, Cayo Largo is home to some of Cuba’s most beautiful beaches. On the western side of the island, travellers will find the stunning shores of Playa Paraiso and Playa Sirena. These beaches are perfect for families with young children as the waters are very calm on this side of the island and the sand is soft, white and stretches as far as the eye can see. Cayo Largo also hosts exciting attractions including the village of Isla del Sol, which families can visit with the island’s convenient tourist train, a fun experience for kids. There they’ll find souvenir shops, entertainment, restaurants and a museum, plus the Sea Turtle Rescue Centre where the efforts being made to protect, rehabilitate and preserve these incredible animals can be learned at an early age.
A haven for water sports
Some of the most popular activities in Cayo Largo can be found off the coast of the island. Cayo Largo offers some of the best conditions for a range of motorized and non-motorized water sports for guests of all ages. While small children can splash in the surf, mature guests can explore beneath the waves of the Caribbean Sea with snorkelling and scuba diving at more than 30 dive sites, a protected marine reserve and over 200 ancient shipwrecks. There’s also a marina on the island where families can charter a boat and take in the stunning Caribbean sunset as they cruise along the coast of Cayo Largo.
