A coastal idyll, some three hours west of Havana, Cayo Jutias is located on a remote peninsula lined with white sand.
Relatively undiscovered, this area remains untouched by the development of larger, all-inclusive resorts elsewhere on the island; perfect for travellers in search of an authentic Cuba holiday experience with the added pleasure of those picture-perfect beaches that stretch for three kilometres along the coast.
Nature lovers will be in heaven here, with most of the peninsula covered in luscious mangroves ripe for exploring, and plenty of endemic species ready to be spotted in the treetops and amongst the undergrowth.
The undisturbed nature of this location means there is no accommodation directly on the peninsula and no hotels at all in the immediate area; instead you’ll stay in a casa particular, or private home. ‘Casas’ are government-licenced lodgings run by Cubans from their own residences – the closest UK equivalent would be a cosy bed & breakfast. All casas provided by Western & Oriental will have en suite facilities and most will be air-conditioned. For many, staying at casa is one of the highlights of their trip, as it gives them an opportunity to be immersed in everyday Cuban life and mingle with locals.
