Where is it ?
Cayo Paredón Grande is a tiny island of 8.7 km2 located north of Cayo Romano, in the province of Camagüey, Cuba. Cayo Romano is the largest island in the King’s Gardens archipelago with its neighbors Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo. Cayo Paredon is located closer to Cayo Coco (CCC) International Airport than hotels and services in Cayo Guillermo. An interesting asset for the development!
The island of Cayo Coco is connected to the mainland by a causeway « pedraplen » in the sea inaugurated on July 26th, 1988. The airport of Cayo Coco welcomed its first tourists on December 26th, 2002. Before the construction of the airport on the island of Cayo Coco, travelers had to go to the international airport of Ciego de Avila (AVI), located an hour and half from the hotels in Cayo Coco, and about 2 hours for Cayo Guillermo.
From the Cayo Coco airport, turn right at the roundabout (1.1 km from the airport) then turn right again (3 km from the roundabout) to access the main road to Cayo Romano. About 6 km away, you will see the bridge that divides the province of Ciego de Avila and Camaguey. Continue on the same road for about 10 km until you reach the junction to go to Cayo Paredon. You will cross two bridges to get to the island.
Google Earth is an excellent positioning software. On the satellite image below, you can see the location of Cayo Paredon. I added bookmarks on the map, move your pointer over them to see the info. Using your mouse, you can move the image (click and drag) to see other points of interest in the region. Use your wheel to zoom in or zoom out.
