We booked the Cayo Blanco tour with a catamaran (75 Eur/CUC per Person) because we wanted to go snorkeling. However, the day before the weather was rainy and windy and so the water was too sandy to see anything. Thus, all people on the boated opted to go directly to Cayo Blanco to the beach. We felt the trip was... More

If the beach at your resort is nice then there's no real reason to go on a catamaran trip to Cayo Blanco. The sand was very nice there but otherwise it's nothing special. The experience is very similar to being at the resort. You sit on chairs under palapas and eat a lobster buffet at 1pm. They don't make mojitos... More

This was a great day! We took booked this trip through our resort in varadero. The catamaran was great! Good drinks and music! They took us snorkelling in a great spot with over 100 colourful fish but it was very wavy and hard to snorkel. We opted out of the dolphin thing because that's cruel. Cayo blanco island was GORGEOUS!... More

Catamaran boat ride over was relaxing which was fine because it was early. Beach is beautiful. White sand blue water. Lunch was ok. Lots of lobster. There was dancing and other activities. Catamaran ride back was more fun because it was later in the day. Delicious rum punch and games on board !!

We visited Cayo Blanco via a Catamaran / Cayo Blanco excursion offered through Transat rep at our resort in Varadero. Although the day was sunny and beautiful, the value was not there. The catamaran ride over was so-so, the island beautiful but Varadero beach is much more lovely, and the lunch included in the excursion was definitely not what we... More

My family and I visited Cayo Blanco in Dec 2016. It was a wonderful experience. First of all the catamaran that took us there was modern and comfortable, the crew was friendly and the beach is spectacular. White sand, crystal clear sea, a perfect place for a good swim!

Trip with catamaran, with excellent fun and perfect staff. Absolutely great day on Cayo Blanco, when we came, it was not crowded (afternoon it really was :( ) and the beach is fabulous! Palm trees, white sand, warm crystal water.. Sunny day! Lunch was not so good, but who cares.... Soft drinks free on the island, on the catamaran bar... More

Going out on the ocean with the catamaran was a nice experience. Our guide was a bit too show-off with his language skills, and this took time when he was giving information. The captain/sailors did not speak or understand English so well. The island was not as stunning as we had thought. Just another tourist destination full of sunbeds and... More

We took the tour to Cayo Blanco for the day, were picked up at the hotel in the morning and then boarded a yacht heading to Cayo. On the way there was option to snorkel and also to swim with dolphins in the middle of the tour. In the boat had bar open at all times with animation. On arrival... More
