Hotel Cayo Levisa is a cute resort that features rustic yet pleasantly furnished beachfront cabins offering standard and Premium accommodation in a lovely setting.

The hotel is named after the cay on which it stands, a dream island in the province of Pinar del Río ringed by 3.5 kilometers of stunning sugar-white beaches.

The island is practically virgin therefore very peaceful and quiet. By walking only a little one can feel as on a completely deserted island. But of course, it can be boring after a day or two, not offering many activities during the afternoon / night.

Besides the beautiful beach which is perfect for walking and relaxing, the main interest of Cayo Levisa is its sea bottom, impressive coral reef and marine life. There is a diving center with professional instructors and 23 defined sites for SCUBA diving, highly recommended! Snorkeling at the coral reef is also possible.

Rooms are spread among several log cabins, which are pretty simple but nice, good size, clean and cozy.

All meals are included but not drinks (excluding coffee at breakfast). They are reasonably priced, though.

Food is about the same every day and probably not to European standards, but you can normally choose from pork, fish and chicken to be grilled for you, and salads, rice, fruits.

WiFi is available by buying a "Nauta" card but be aware, the hotel might have run out. It is probably a good idea to purchase one in Havana or Pinar del Río before hand.

Recommended for nature lovers, divers and all those travelers seeking a relaxing quiet place to rest.


Bring cash (CREDIT CARDS NOT ACCEPTED) and snacks, games, books, bug repellent.
