Villa Azul is a budget hotel, set in a lush area off the beaten path yet just 10 minutes away from the stunning Cayo Coco area, with its glorious beaches & unique cave nightclub.
Islazul Azul hotel has 30 rooms which are basic and cheap yet comfortable, providing an authentic Cuban feel compared to the all-inclusive hotels in Cayo Coco. The facilities include a pizzeria, café & restaurant, while Villa Azul also hosts discos that provide a great opportunity to have fun with other guests & locals. We have heard sometimes the aprthotel only has cold water.
With the complex being off the beaten path, it is recommended that guests hire a car to enable them to enjoy the beauty of the island’s coastline, where you might even see pink flamingos.
Visitors to Villa Azul hotel can have the best of both worlds, seeing the unspoiled inner island & yet only a few kilometres from beautiful white sandy beaches.
Cayo Coco is the forth island in term of size forming the Cuban archipelago; with 370 square kilometers, it is located to the Atlantic coast of Cuba, close to the Canal Viejo de Bahamas. It is linked to the main land by a stone road, 17 km long.
Today, Cayo Coco is a paradisiacal place relevant for the balance and degree of preservation of the ecosystem it has attained, by protecting its virgin atmosphere isolated from modern world. Its beach is 10 Km long, of fine sand and warm and crystal-clear waters.
A privileged reserve for flora and fauna, this key hosts species such as the wading birds, particularly the coconut the island was named after, the gray heron, and the pink flamingo which total over 30 000 and is among the biggest herds in the world. It is also favorite habitat for other bird species such as the cormorant, woodpecker, mockingbird, pelicans and many duck species.
A 10-30 Mt. coral reef, over 10 Km long, adds more attraction to the place; the diversity and abundance of marine species make divers feel in a real aquarium.
Very few places in the world can compete with such beauty; one may find the Mega lops atlantica, the Trachinotus, as well as big snappers, meros, sharks and barracudas, adding more attractive to diving at the places "Coco Diving Center" may offer.
