Cayo Levisa is a beautiful destination, and if you have time ( I recommend at least 3 nights, as it takes a while to get to and you have limited ferry rides to choose from), a much better choice than Varadaro.. because it is much quieter, isolated, and not commercial at all. It is more expensive and difficult to get... More

Cayo Levisa is not a world class luxury resort. You will not find groomed beaches or fancy food, the finest linen or service of your every whim. Get that straight and you will discover a beautiful island with a hotel of comfortable bungalows, friendly staff, and a relaxed atmosphere where you can enjoy the sun and sand. It's not saying...

The cayo Levisa is an amazing beach only reachable by boat. We booked a day there for 39CUC and it is really an adventure. After 1h of bus, we had to wait one hour under the sun for the next boat, what was actually already full do after loads of discussion and the bus refusing to go back to vinales... More

If you want a beach day , take this day trip from vinales. Beautiful sands and clear water. Well organized, however if I was to.do it again, I would choose a la carte or the sandwich deal. The lunch deal.which was buffet style was disappointing whereas the restaurant looked great. The sandwich deal was ample and delicious according to a... More

Takes 1 hour bus trip from Vinjales and 40 min with boat to get there. Well worth it. The Beach is stunning and NOT crowded. You will have your own peace. The restaurant in nice. Hotels organize day trips but I would spend 1-2 nights there easily.

A stunning beach where you can see sea stars in the water without having to snorkle. There are many sun beds along the beach that you can use free of charge. I found the facilities better here than at Cayo Jutias as there were several restaurants and bars plus toilets to use. I came with Cubantur so my luch was... More

If you don't get to stay here, at least visit for the day, walk along the beach to find your own deserted desert island and swim naked in the sea.

We were supposed to stay here two nights, but after one day we decided to leave early. Location: this island is remote. To get there you need to drive the worst road in cuba. No small towns close to it to visit if weather not good enough for sunbathing. You pay for secure parking. But when we got our car... More

Tiny tropical island with white beach and few tourists. Accessible only by boat, the island has some accomodations available (book early), a couple of restaurants and bars, diving center and some shops. Very small and not overly expensive. As a day trip from Vinales, it is a nice place to relax
