Cayo Coco is an island in the central region of Cuba, its area of 370 km² makes it the fourth largest island in this country; It is famous for its luxurious all-inclusive resorts. It is located in the province of Ciego de Ávila and more specifically in the Morón municipality. It is part of a chain of islands known as Jardines del Rey.
The key is linked to the island of Cuba by means of an artificial road, called pedraplén, about 17 km long. The construction caused protests on the part of the environmentalists since it interrupted the flow of the waves and in this way the marine life cycle. Despite initial fears, wild flamingos still live in the shallow waters and can often be seen from the artificial path, though not as often as before the construction.
The island has its own international airport, Jardines del Rey International Airport. Since 2005, tourists can fly directly to the airport in Cayo Coco, instead of having to do it through the main island of Cuba.
