Destination Details

Cayo Santa Maria, Villa Clara, Cuba

Cuba's central province of Villa Clara is also taking part in the dynamic development of the island's tourism industry, backed up by its exuberant nature and unique history. The strategy to boost tourism goes beyond the so-called big island, focusing on the territories that make up the Northern Keys, which boast several kilometers of excellent beaches and a pristine environment. A 48-km-long causeway on the sea connects the largest island of the Cuban archipelago with Santa María, Las Brujas, Ensenachos, Cobos, Majá, Fragoso, Francés, Las Picúas and Español de Adentro, among other keys. The key holds remnants of pre-Columbian cultures in caverns near the beaches, which boast beautiful underwater seascapes that provide a one-of-a-kind option for ecotourism. Legends are also present in the region, like in the case of Las Brujas (The Witches), whose name is linked to stories about ghosts, noises and apparitions that circulated among local dwellers, although other stories refer to love encounters between a local fisherman and a young lady.

On Cayo Las Brujas is the villa of the same name, which is located in Punta Periquillo, very close to a wide strip of sand that runs for about two kilometers. The villa was built on pillars on a reef. Very close to the villa is an airport, which can receive small- and medium-size planes, thus facilitating vacationers' access to the key.
