Cayo Largo Diving

Where is it? Off the southern coast of Cuba, it’s 177 km south of Havana and 120 km east of the Isle of Youth. Strictly for tourism, the 26 km island’s only Cuban inhabitants are workers in its tourism industry. The diving is based out of the Cayo Largo Marina. Daily transfers included from all Cayo Largo hotels to/from the Marina.

Getting there: Daily domestic flight from Havana or in certain seasons, direct weekly charter flights from Canada (with Cubana) and other countries.

Flights to Cayo Largo: Daily flights available, transfers included.

Accommodations: The dive center (marina) has a small 10 room hotel, Villa Marinera (right at the marina) as well as the nearby all inclusive Sol Cayo Largo, Hotel Pelícano or Iberostar Playa Blanca properties. WoWCuba can facilitate accommodations in the property of your choice in conjunction with your dive package.

The Scuba Diving: 32 dive sites, barrier reef just 1 km offshore, vertical wall, grottoes, sunken ships. The dive center is the Cayo Largo del Sur International Dive Center.
