Cayo Levisa Travel Guide

Cayo Levisa

The Archipiélago de los Colorados runs west along Cuba's northern coast, beginning at Cayo Paraíso, a famous haunt of Hemingway who moored his fishing boat Pilar here. A plaque erected near the wooden dock at Cayo Paraíso on the 90th anniversary of his birth immortalizes Hemingway's love for this pristine spot, which, in fact, he named (old navigational charts identify it as Cayo Megano).
