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.

The rugged and natural Cayo Jutias is yet another under-the-radar island off the coast of mainland Cuba.

Home to several untouched, wild beaches that make this unique Caribbean destination a true off-the-grid escape.

You won’t find any all-inclusive resorts here – just tiny guesthouses and spots for wild camping among the unspoiled beaches.

The easiest way to visit Cayo Jutias is by renting a vintage American car on the Cuban mainland to bring you over the long bridge connecting Cayo Jutias with the rest of Cuba.

While some visitors spend days on this laidback island, most choose to come just for the day while in the area visiting Viñales, one of the most picturesque natural destinations in the Caribbean.
