Paredon Grande Key is located in Cayo Coco
Cuba, a tourist attraction par excellence, has expanded its offers beyond its limits by adding unexplored islets and keys for the enjoyment of vacationers.North of the Cuban eastern province of Ciego de Avila is one of the fastest-growing destinations in the Island's tourist sector, the Jardines del Rey (King's Gardens) archipelago.
According to legend, the exuberant nature of such islets as Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo and Paredon Grande led Conquistador Diego Velázquez to name that region in honor of Spanish King Fernando the Catholic.The region's tourist infrastructure has grown dynamically, and the sector's main target is to build more than 20,000 rooms, in addition to a modern airport, ports, nautical bases, natural parks and, of course, to implement ecotourism programs.Jardines del Rey's closeness to a 400-kilometer coral reef, considered the second largest in the world - after the one in Australia, gives a touch of class to the region's tourist offer, with a wide range of diving activities in warm and crystal-clear waters.

Review about Cuban Keys: Paredon Grande KeyExcellent
Paredon Grande Key
This little islet is just 6 square kilometres / 2.3 square miles in size but offers plenty in the way of beaches and great swimming sites. It is a short boat ride away from Cayo Guillermo, and so makes an excellent day trip if you want to explore more cays that are completely undeveloped. A highlight here is the wrought iron lighthouse, which was built in 1857 and rises 48 metres / 157 feet above the sand.
