Cayo Santa María

Considered one of the most beautiful keys in the Cuban archipelago, Cayo Santa María is part of the group of small islands located on the northern coast of the Villa Clara province. It joins with the rest of the territory with a 28-mile-long road that crosses the sea and it is very close to the city of Remedios and the village of Caibarién. The territory has an exclusive diversity of flora and wildlife species and it was declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.

Cayo Cruz

The tropical island of Cayo Crux is a small slice of Caribbean paradise measuring just 26 km2 in the archipelago known as the “Jardines del Rey” (King’s Gardens) in the Camagüey province of Cuba, opposite the Old Bahama Channel. A destination far removed from mass tourism where you will find heavenly beaches and wild natural areas that will take your breath away.
