Lets face it. Everybody goes to the Caribbean for sun, surf and sand. Cayo Largo, part of the Archipielago de los Canarreos
is located 177 kilometres south of Havana and 120 kilometres east of Isla de la Juventud. It is a narrow (three-km-wide) 25
kilometre long boomerang shaped island. If all you want to do is laze in the sun, this is the place to be. You won't learn
much about Cuban life, but for a classic Caribbean resort vacation this is a very safe spot to be. The only Cubans on the
island are staff who are flown in for a 4 week work stint, followed by 10 days off at their mainland homes. Because of this
isolation, there are no beach vendors or other disruptions to your relaxation and enjoyment.
The Melia Sol Club Cayo Largo is located on Playa Lindamar, one of four beaches stretching an unbroken 20 kilometres
along the islands southern side. The other beaches are Playa Blanca, Playa Los Cocos and Playa Tortuga. Nothing can beat the sugar
fine white sand leading right to the turquoise water. And when you tire of the beach, you can always lounge around the large
free-form fresh water swimming pool in the resort.
