Location and Tips

Cayo Levisa
Cuba
Cuba

Cayo Levisa is 4 km long and accessible only by ferry which takes about half an hour. For day visitores buffet lunch in the hotel is included in the ferry ticket price. There is only one hotel with roughly 20 bungalows. It looked like a good choice for several nights. Cayo Levisa is well known for diving and snorkeling and the black coral. We enjoyed snorkeling a lot. This reef is one of the best. We spotted many different species of fish.

Nice island but diving and snorkeling was at the same place with same boat. It wasn't deeper than 15 meters.
