Welcome to Cayo Largo del Sur
No permanent Cuban settlement has ever existed on the Cayo. Instead, the island was developed in the early 1980s purely as a tourism enterprise. Cayo Largo del Sur is largely frequented by Italian tourists – several resorts here cater exclusively to them. The other all-inclusives are less picky. The heavenly beaches surpass most visitors' expectations of Caribbean paradise and are renowned for their size, emptiness and nesting turtles. There's also a profusion of iguanas and birdlife, including hummingbirds and flamingos.
