We are traveling further around islands of Cuba and after visiting the island of La Isla de la JuventudCayo Largo and Cayo Coco we decided to stop at one more amazing place – Cayo Santa MariaTravelers come to this small island that is situated in the north of the mainland Cuba to bask in the sun, swim in the clear emerald water and enjoy high-level service at all-inclusive resorts.


To explore Cuba itself and learn more about Cuban culture, you’ll need to go further afield, but if you’re simply looking for a tropical break without any hustle or bustle, Cayo Santa Maria might be your perfect choice.


Just imagine a white sandy beach, a beautiful garden, bright rooms and a luxury spa – such conditions are waiting for tourists in the local hotels.


Cayo Santa Maria is just a small island length of which is just 13 km and a width is no more than 2 km. Apart from a beach holiday you should definitely visit the local villages.


Caibarién is a small fishing village, where you can taste tilapia, bonefish, tarpon and lobster.

Remedios conveys a distinctive atmosphere of Cuba.

Pueblo la Estreya was built a few years ago specifically for the entertainment of tourists. Here you will find souvenir shops, bars and restaurants.

If you want to visit the paradise of Cuba, then wander down to the nearby island of Cayo Ensenachos. You will find yourself in a quiet lagoon, surrounded by palm trees, where the crystal clear water is always in complete calm because it is surrounded by coral reefs, and only white fine sand rustles underfoot.


To get to Cayo Santa Maria you can drive a car along the scenic dam, also called Pedraplen, from the island of Cayo Coco, or fly from Havana to a small airport at Las Brujas Airport, that is a 15-minute drive from Cayo Santa Maria.
