What is the first thing that comes to mind when you picture islands in the Caribbean?

You might be surprised to learn that you can find so much more than the crystal clear water and white sand beaches, you’ve seen on a postcard.

If you’re a fan of Ernest Hemingway, you may have heard of Cayo Guillermo.

The author’s work “Islands in the Stream” lauds this tiny island off the northern coast of Cuba.

It has incredible natural beauty, shallow coral reefs, and crystal clear waters.

Rimmed with some of the best beaches in Cuba, Cayo Guillermo is one of the best Caribbean islands for a getaway at a luxurious all-inclusive resort that may not have been on your radar.

Once a wild and natural getaway, this has caught the recent attention of some of the world’s largest hotel chains, and new developments have popped up along the island’s east coast.

Staking claim over the island’s most beautiful beach – Playa Pilar – are beautiful Kempinski and Iberostar properties where you can enjoy the beach.

Cayo Guillermo is easily accessible via the Jardines del Rey International Airport on the neighboring island of Cayo Coco.
