My question is about renting scooters in Cayor Coco. We have done this previously but I am wondering about taking the causeway to the mainland.
Is it safe, is there anything for us to see if we make a day of it and would you do it?
is there a local market?

How much does it cost to swim with the dolphins 2 adults and 1 8year old child?
Hello We have been to Cuba before (Varadero) but were looking at going to Cayo Coco for the week of August 5th 2013. We were kind of scared off due to Hurricane season and were wondering what weather conditions are typically for that time of year?
Do there still do a daily trip to Havana from Cayo Coco and return as a tourist. I did the rip about 5 years ago fully escorted?
Is there a place to go to swim with the dolphins that does not involve an aquarium or a plane ride to get there?
Should I take my own Rod reel and flies?

Hello. We have booked to visit Cayo Coco next June, staying in Melia. Want to gather some information on the overnight excursion to Havana. Can anyone give some guidance on who to book with, how much, how long on the coach etc.
We are travelling to your hotel on the 14th June we are really looking forward to our first stay with you. Please could you tell us if you have wifi facilities at your hotel. Also could we please request a top floor room with a nice view of the sea. Looking forward to seeing you soon Diane and Maurice Branch.
We're going to the Blau Colonial in March and have been hearing and reading conflicting stories about tipping and gifting the staff. Some say do it generously and regularly, others say that the country may seem poor but that the staff in the resorts are not because of the generous volume of tips they receive. I've never been to an all inclusive resort and want to do the right thing, but don't want to just throw money around either. My sister said that she tips at the end of her trips and when she stayed in Cayo Coco (different resort) that her service quickly dwindled because she wasn't tipping as she went along. Also, how much is recommended to tip? I've heard one peso per day/service, but I've also heard that's not enough. What's a girl to do???? Thanks!
Wondering if anyone else is looking to drive to Havana from Cayo Coco On Jan 18th afternoon
email me if you would like to share transportaion
Why is Blau not listed in the list or resorts in Cayo Coco. I wanted to put up a review but seems that all resorts are listed except Blau. Am I missing something here?
I'm off to Hotel Melia Cayo Coco with my partner 21 January, and I want to do some fishing although it's not purely a fishing holiday. I've never done anything like this sort of fishing before.
I've read the query from juneboulton (25oct10) and the reply from ozzb1 (05nov10). Both should now be back from their recent trips. I'd appreciate anything they could add to ozzb1's helpful suggestions, based on their recent experiences, and of course anything that any other member would care to offer. I intend to take an 8-wt 9' fly rod (plus poss 6-wt for backup in case of accident) with pike/bass type flies and a 10' spinning rod with poppers and possibly other stuff.
Suggestions would be appreciated re:
- terminal tackle for bait fishing, braided line vs monofil, and what sort of strength, obtaining dead bait, etc
- landing net?
- getting to other nearby 'well worth it' locations including inland channels and lagoons, bridges on causeways
- up-to-date info on boat trips and guides for shore fishing (but I can't spend a lot)
- can you get caught fish cooked at the hotel and, assuming you do well, can you give fish to the hotel kitchen and or individual local people?
- what about mosquitoes and other precautions/risks while fishing, in addition to the obvious sun exposure
I hope juneboulton and ozzb1 and respective partners had really good trips.
My partner and I are off to Cayo Coco on the 5 dec, we are only going for a week unfortunately, but wanting to find some good things to do with our time and not really finding a lot through the internet, so hoping some people with experience will help us out! We really want to go to Havana but found out its an overnight stay, or is there a other way of getting there?
Are there any good sugar cane trips or cigar factory trips, or anything fun also
We are off to cuba the end of November and my husband is an avid fisherman. Can anyone give us any advice on the fishing in cayo coco - best places to go/best people to ask/who to fish with. What have people caught in Cayo Coco. Any relies would be appreciated.
Any tips on trips or traps re: visiting Havana from Cayo Coco? My husband & I are staying at the Sol Melia Cayo Coco next summer, & are keen to visit Havana. I would like to know mode of transport...eg. plane? coach? legnth of journey? approx costs etc?
we are four people going to Cuba in January and we want to go direct to Cayo Coco from Havana. Does anyone know how to get from Havana to Cayo Coco? Have checked Viazul (http://www.viazul.cu) but they have no direct route to Cayo Coco (I think the nearest stop is Ciego de Avila). We have also considered rental car, but are unsure of price and availability in the period that we intend to go.

I'm heading to Cayo Coco in a couple of days. I'm just wondering what the best option is for going to Havana for a day or two. Does anyone know what the cost is for a flight? Is it worth it to just book a flight directly without doing the whole package deal through the resort? What about a car rental? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
