What to do in Cayo Santa Maria


Heavenly beaches

Looking for tranquility, turquoise waters and white sand? Look no further, Cayo Santa Maria is the destination for you! Cayo Santa Maria’s breathtaking beach will blow you mind! It is the ideal spot for romantic sunset walks.


Santa Clara

Capital of the province of Villa Clara, Santa Clara is a historically rich city. You can visit the museum dedicated to Che Guevara in order to learn more about this figure so important for Cubans. Stroll on the famous Boulevard 1889 and take the opportunity to stock up on souvenirs from the various merchants. Then, you should head to Parque Vidal, located in the center of the city. A theater, a library and even a market surround this park. It is certainly a nice place to visit.


Fishing

If the weather permits, you should take a deep sea-fishing trip with local anglers that will teach you a ton of tips. Good catches await you: swordfish, mahi-mahi, sea pikes or even barracudas! Check with your destination representative.


Boat tours

Want to see the ocean from another angle? Book a boat trip! There are several options available to you. If you are an adventurer and you like speed, go for a "speed boat" trip while an aquatic safari will show you fascinating landscapes. If you're more a chill-out type, take a catamaran cruise. You will get a closer look at the crystal clear waters and who knows, you could even spot some pretty colorful fish!

Official language

Spanish is the official language in Cuba. However, since this is a very popular destination for Canadians, it is not uncommon for people to exchange a few words in French or English with all-inclusive hotel staff.

Voltage

Voltage is 220V in most hotels. If your devices only work on 110V, be sure to bring a converter.

Electrical outlets are generally able to accommodate flat plugs (such as those used in North America) and round pin plugs (such as those used in Europe). On the other hand, remember that some older hotels can only take round pin plugs. Please remember to bring a power adapter and a converter.
