The feasts, festivals and events held in Cayo Guillermo are closely linked to what the few resorts in the area have to offer. This being one of the unspoilt areas in Cuba, featuring only tropical rainforests and sandy beaches (no towns or villages), most traditional festivals take place in the neighbouring Cayo Coco or in the town of Morón (the district Cayo Guillermo and Jardines del Rey belong to). The parties on El Paso or Pilar beach are not to be missed, though: there is music, dance and a real Caribbean atmosphere.

Main events in Cayo Guillermo

  • June – Jardines del Rey Jazz Festival: One of the most important festivals held in Morón-Ciego de Ávila. Hundreds of jazz lovers gather to enjoy a music style that has travelled across countries, centuries and hearts. The festival features concerts by both Cuban and international artists.
