Hotel Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba


An Overview by Authentic Cuba Travel

The Melia Cayo Santa Maria All Inclusive Resort is set in 12 hectares of grounds, alongside almost 400 metres of white, sandy beach. It owes its name to Santa Maria, one of the small islands in the Jardines del Rey archipelago.

A spacious, white sandy beach, crystal-clear, turquoise waters, lush vegetation and abundant fauna have made it a National Park (part of UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Buenavista) and one of the most exotic locations in the Caribbean.

The UNESCO Buenavista Biosphere Reserve is situated on the northern coast of Cuba, in parts of the Villa Clara, Sancti Spiritus and Ciego de Avila provinces, covering a total surface area of 313,502 hectares.

The Buenavista Biosphere Reserve has eleven core areas in two National Parks: Caguanes and Santa Maria Key. Other ecological reserves are established on Cayo Frances, Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Guillermo and Cayo Coco, while a fauna reserve is set up on Cayo Las Loras.

One of the singular features of this national park is the group of stone formations called Piedras Cays, which are surrounded by the sea and have coastal cliffs, natural arches and sea niches that serve as refuges for many species of flora and fauna.
