Arrival on Cayo Levisa
When you reach the small harbour at Palma Rubia, you’ll hop in a boat for the 45 minute crossing to Cayo Levisa. Needless to say, it’s a really beautiful ride. Uninterrupted sapphire waters shimmer in the sunlight until the sugary sands of Cayo Levisa appear on the horizon.
You’ll stay in a simple wooden cabana next to the spotless white beach, where there isn’t a grain of sand out of place. Each cabin has air-conditioning, television and a little terrace for kicking back and soaking up the sea views. The resort is home to small restaurant (meals are included), as well as a bar and a handy shop – everything you need is on your doorstep. It’s a little outdated and rough around the edges, but we think the setting more than makes up for it.
Free Time & Departure
The island is all about taking a break from reality. Doze under a coconut palm, collapse into a lounger and cool down with a dip in the bright blue sea. Forget all about your real-world troubles – and your shoes. If you’re itching to explore, hire a kayak and paddle around the coastline, drinking in the views and the sunshine as you go.
The areas around Cayo Levisa and nearby Cayo Paraíso are terrific for snorkelling and diving, and you’ll be able to hire equipment locally. In the evening, you’ll find a bottle of rum with your name on it at the bar, so order a cocktail and catch a Caribbean sunset. The next day you’ll pack up your things and wave goodbye to the island life.
