Holidays to Cayo Santa Maria

Holidays to Cayo Santa Maria

Cayo Santa Maria is often called the "white rose of the Jardines del Rey archipelago" and it is the largest island in the group. In area, it takes up a total of five square miles and has over six miles of beach. In the lush interior, a plethora of wildlife and exotic plants flourish, and many tours enable travellers to see them close up. A grand causeway made of natural stone links this islet to the mainland, so every luxury you'd expect elsewhere will be available on holidays to Cayo Santa Maria. Hotels are made up of exclusive bungalows carefully positioned in manicured grounds; they have warm sundecks offering ocean views and easy access to pristine private beaches. We love the huge freeform pools here, along with comfortable loungers and parasols for escaping the midday heat.
