Key Largo Key Largo, Florida

Key Largo’s written history dates back to the 1600s when a Dutch cartographer named Johannes Vingboons labeled the island “Caio dos 12 Ligues,” or “Key of 12 Leagues.” Caio or cayo is where the term “Key” comes from. Eventually, a post office named Cayo Largo was established in the present day Rock Harbor area. At the time, the town had a population of 60 people. In only 15 years, the population jumped to 230. By the time the railroad got started in 1908, Key Largo had four train stops. This helped increase the flow of immigration onto the island. The island was officially named Key Largo in 1921 by the postmaster of the area. Through the early 1900s, the island was primarily farmland for key limes and grapefruits. Now, Key Largo is one of the more well-known islands in the Keys. It is a great spot for both families and the single renter or buyer. Key Largo’s prime location leaves you only about an hour from Miami, and not too far from the rest of the Florida Keys.
