Jardines del Rey, is a collection of keys, islands and islets that were given their name by the Spanish between 1513 and 1514 in honor of the then monarch Fernando the Catholic.
Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo, two of the most outstanding keys, are natural settings for water sports and leisure, with beaches defended by coral reefs and abundant forest vegetation that is home to diverse fauna among which the pink flamingos reign.
Jardines del Rey is located north of the province of Ciego de Avila in central-eastern Cuba, between the province of Sancti Spíritus (west) and Camagüey (east).
¿How to get there?
- You can get here by air through the modern international airport. Jardines del Rey is also connected by domestic flights with the main tourist destinations on the island.
