So, you’re thinking of tying the knot in Cuba, weddings in Cayo Coco are pretty special. There are some fabulous venues with white powder like sand beaches, turquoise waters and as for the weather, well it’s practically guaranteed sunshine year round.
Cayo Coco is off the coast of the centre of Cuba and has its own airport. There are connecting cays Cayo Cruz which has several fairly new resorts:
• Ocean Arena Blanca (550 rooms), scheduled to open sometime in 2018.
• Hotel Quebrada 21 (700 rooms).
• Hotel Punta Cocina Parcela 32 (895 rooms).
• Hotel Quebrada 24 (680 rooms).
• Hotel Punta Cocina Parcela 30 (1,145 rooms)
Cayo Romano doesn’t have any as of yet. Cayo Coco is the most popular with the Melia Cayo Coco being the most lavish.
Pullman is just a little less expensive but still very nice. Tryp and Iberostar Colonial. They all have excellent beaches along with excellent service.
What I did find with resorts at the Cays is the fact there wasn’t much else to do in that area. There is nothing, which is great for all you sun worshippers out there, who like nothing better to do that lie on the beach all day. Soaking in those rays or sitting by the pool sipping endless all inclusive mojito’s is fine though.
If you want to see something of Cuba you’re going to need a Taxi to get to places like Moron, not a great lot to see or do there, so further afield is the very beautiful Trinidad. Just bear in mind it’s a good three hours and a pretty expensive taxi fare. (remember to barter).
Trinidad is amazing and it’s well worth the effort and expense in going, in my opinion.
A few questions I read in one of my facebook groups https://www.facebook.com/groups/destinationionweddings/ is brides saying they haven’t heard back from their wedding planner or Thomas Cook about their wedding plans and they only have 3 or 4 months to go! Relax, everything is fine. Wedding planners at these resorts are not only very busy they have to deal with slow internet. Rest assured everything will be done, although most of it when you arrive!
Cayo Coco’s are very picturesque but can be a little windy too at times. If you choose to go on the bus that takes you to other resorts (I think it’s 5 cuc’s) you might think it a good idea to get up top on the open top bus, I made the same mistake. It’s very windy, almost an uncomfortable wind, wear a hat at your peril.
The Pullman on Cayo Coco is the best value for money in regards to booking your wedding there. Food is amazing and the wedding planner there goes over and beyond your expectations to make everything perfect on your special day.
