Went on the Thomas Cook trip via a catamaran. It's a free bar on board and a smooth trip to Cayo Saetia (or paradise island to the tourists). There's a chance to snorkel just off the beach with two highly professional guides,there are plenty of fish of all types to see. On arriving on the isle the views the are... More

We arrived on this beautiful beach via The Bay Adventure excursion. Took the catamaran across the bay to get there. First off the staff on the boat was great, This has to be the best beach I have ever been to. Jeep safari was so much fun and the driver was great. Food at the buffet was the best we... More

Interesting catamaran trip from Anthill. Safari off the package as does not meet UK insurance requirements for the jeeps, but the bus looks just as bad. But Chances to see Camels, Ostriches, wild pigs, huge iguanas, buffalo, maybe more. Beach was perfect, restaurant food was superb, snorkeling was OK. Well worth the trip

Beautiful and remote, this is one of the nicest undiscovered beaches in Cuba but sadly the state run hotel formula affects the service price and quality or I would have stayed much longer.

Très joli tour pour une famille qui n'a pas d'enfants de 0-6 ans.le personnel du catamaran est agréable, la guide était drôle (Tina), la plage est superbe, pour la nourriture par contre.. on repassera tout est froid (les fruits sont super). Déçue du tour en jeep / camion, je me demande encore du pourquoi des animaux d'Afrique.. pas vu de... More

The weather wasnt fantastic on the day we went but once at the island it cheered up. Went for a horse ride down the beach which was definately worth it

I just loved the visit. We really enjoyed the catamaran cruise. I wished it was longer :) Then the snorkeling was amazing. Our guide had lots of crackers and bread for the fish and he attracted all sorts of fish, we swam around the corals and even saw Nemo and Dory :) and then who wanted could do the deep... More

To be honest we have expected something more... Maybe because we have seen quite a lot previously but I was expecting the white sand, etc. The beach was small but all right. My husband went snorkeling (part of the trip) but he was a bit disappointed- he has seen more fish at our hotel (Playa Pesquero beach) rather than there.... More

It's a bit of a trek on the coach from the Rio Del Oro Hotel to the coast, but once you're on the catamaran all is well and it's a relaxing sail to the island where we were picked up by Russian jeeps and safari-ed into the island for lunch at the little hotel there. The hotel is what used... More
