1 Sierra de las Casas
The short, easy and enjoyable trek up these low hills rewards with some of the best views of the Isla de la Juventud.
2 Museo Presidio Modelo
A walk around the huge ruined cell blocks of this “Model Prison”, with its forbidding atmosphere and grim history, is unforgettable.
3 Diving at Punta Francés
One of the premier diving areas in Cuba, with over fifty dive sites – from shipwrecks and caves to coral walls and tunnels – and some stunning marine life.
4 Cuevas de Punta del Este
These atmospheric caves, once home to the Siboney people, hold significant examples of early pre-Columbian art, while the nearby beach completes a day-trip.
5 Playa Francés
On a remote, upturned hook of land, the silver sands and limpid waters here make this the best beach on Isla de la Juventud.
6 Boat trips from Cayo Largo
Hop on a catamaran or a yacht to the outlying cays around Cayo Largo to see the iguana colonies and snorkel at coral reefs and deserted beaches.
