Cayo Santa Maria means beauty and adventure, they said. A landscape with an adequate infrastructure and a cuisine that highlights traditional recipes, it also includes safety due to the health situation caused by Covid-19.

Another novelty of these places is that they are the only three Cuban islets interconnected by a causeway.
