Introduction

The cays, islets and larger islands-such as Coco, Guillermo, Santa María, Paredón Grande and Cruz-which the Spaniards named the Jardines del Rey Archipelago in 1513, in honor of Ferdinand the Catholic, offer you tropical scenery of amazing beauty.
Coco and Guillermo Cays-two of the best islets in this group-are ideal natural settings for water sports and other recreational activities, with fine white sandy beaches protected by coral reefs and lush vegetation, the habitat of a wide range of animals (none of which are harmful to man). Of them, the Roseate Flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber ruber) are particularly outstanding.

There, man has provided modern comforts to complement what Nature created over the course of centuries and which is now carefully protected.

Location
