Cayo Largo has been declared the most important place in Cuba, and the fourth most important breeding ground for turtles in the Caribbean. They visit the beaches of Cayo Largo at night to lay their eggs in safety, far from the water's edge. Sol Cayo Largo invites you to take part in the care and protection of this wonderful species and to observe them at night on the beaches of this beautiful paradise, as they look for the ideal place in which to lay their eggs. The hotel, in collaboration with the Marina Cayo Largo and the Commission for the Environment, has created an incubation area for the turtles, which lay their eggs in high-risk places and require a minimum incubation period of 60 days, so that they can then be returned to their natural habitat in a magical ritual that you can share with us, from May to November.


Health Center with an area of more than 600 m2 where guests will find peace and tranquility. SPA with sauna, Jacuzzi, Turkish bath, a gym equipped with bodybuilding and cardiovascular equipment, massage service*, beauty salon*, manicure* and pedicure*, facial and body therapy, * mud therapy* (* Services with extra charge) Open: 7 days a week / 9:00 - 21:00hrs.
