Jardines de la Reina – https://www.flywatertravel.com/destination/jardines_de_la_reina
Jardines de la Reina is a remote archipelago of islands lying some 50 miles off the southern coast of the Cuban mainland. This is a protected marine area with a limited number of catch and release anglers, divers and eco-tourists allowed to visit annually. The habitat here is pristine and untouched, enabling bonefish, permit, tarpon, barracuda, jacks and snapper to flourish. With a total fishing area greater than the Florida Keys, anglers are given a large area per skiff to fish, ensuring that they rarely see other fishermen. In fact, Avalon only allows a maximum of 15 skiffs fishing JDR at any one time.

Cayo Largo lies at the very eastern edge of the Carnarreos archipelago, which is comprised of nearly 350 islands on Cuba’s southern coast. A resort island, Cayo Largo is largely visited by Canadians and Europeans seeking its pristine white-sand beaches, large all-inclusive resorts and crystal clear waters. Better yet, the waters around Cayo Largo hold abundant and extremely healthy populations of the skinny species fish fly anglers love to stalk.

Located north of Camaguey, Cayo Cruz is an island in the Jardines del Rey archipelago (Gardens of the King). This pristine and massive area is prime hunting ground for large bonefish, permit, tarpon (in season), large jacks, snapper and barracuda. Known for its expansive hard sand flats, anglers that are keen to get out of the boat and stalk fish from their feet may fall in love with Cayo Cruz.

Isla de la Juventud – https://www.flywatertravel.com/destination/isla_de_juventud
Isla de la Juventud (Island of the Youth), is the largest island in the nearly 4000 islands that surround the Cuban mainland. The habitat here is pristine, and seldom visited, except for a few intrepid divers, lobster fisherman, and anglers in the know. With mangrove islands, tannin stained interior bays, and close proximity to the deeper water to the south, tarpon flourish near IDJ as juveniles, and return as adults during their migratory months. The “Baby Tarpon” that live in and around the mangroves range in size from 5-30 pounds, while the migratory fish will range from 40-120 pounds.
