Iberostar Daiquiri is an all inclusive resort situated on a small island off the coast of Cuba. The island is Cayo Guillermo and the nearest airport is in another island Cayo Coco. These islands are connected by road that also goes to Cuba’s mainland province of Ciego de Avila. Cuba is the largest of Caribbean islands and has many all inclusive resorts all over its coast. Spring is very nice season in Cuba, as it is northern most of all the islands in the Caribbean sometimes it may get cold in Cuba especially in January and February. March and April are probably the best months to consider for spring vacations.

Iberostar Daiquiri resort consists of several brightly colored hotel buildings and more expensive units are closer to the beach. This is not a large all inclusive resort and everything is close by anyways. Iberostar Daiquiri hotel also has a local Cuban bank where all the tourists from nearby resorts flock to exchange currencies. The bank supposedly has the best rates and lower commissions than front desks at the hotels. It is a small building to the right of the Iberostar Daiquiri entrance. If you have some Cuban money left you will be able to exchange at an even better rate at the airport where local people will come to you while you wait in the customs line.
