You are hereCayo Romano
Cayo Romano is located on Cuba's north coast, in the Provinces of Ciego del Avila and Camaguey. Cayo Romano's fishing grounds of reefs, cays, sand flats, coral flats, channels and beaches cover 1350 square miles, a vast archipelago.
The fishing at Cayo Romano is so extensive that guests can fish the western end of the archipelago - Paredón Grande - and be based on Cayo Coco in the Province of Ciego del Avila; or fish the eastern end - Cayo Cruz - with a base in the village of Brasil (formerly Jaronú) in the Province of Camaguey. Separate guides and skiffs are provided at each.
Much of the water has not yet seen fishermen and new spots are regularly discovered. Large numbers of Permit have been taken and Tarpon have been encountered in huge sizes. Bones are a good average too with regular catches of 5, 6 and 7lb, and there is a huge variety of inshore species to pursue. Clients have been building a record book of impressive catches on the main 3 flats species.
January to March is a great time for good-sized bonefish, small and medium tarpon (20-30lbs), and from mid-January the permit begin to appear.
April to June is perhaps the best time both for weather and for the appearence of large quantities of huge tarpon - in addition to the bonefish and permit.
August to October is recognised as the hurricane period but, the area is well protected by a string of cays on its northern boundary so it is rarely affected.
September to December is a good period for bonefish and for smaller quantities of large and medium tarpon.
