The name of this destination comes from its long shape, and its history dates from the aboriginal period, since remains and artifacts from the Siboney culture have been found on the cayo. Admiral Christopher Columbus landed on Cayo Largo del Sur in 1494, and many corsairs and pirates turned the cayo into their base of operations in the Caribbean Sea.
