Santa Clara capital

The capital city is home to one of Cuba’s most important universities and bursting with young intellectual energy. It’s a great place to go out and meet people. It’s also packed with tons of historical stuff, which can get a bit boring after a while. The Monumento Ernesto Che Guevara is its most notable asset - and nowadays a huge tourist attraction. It’s a mausoleum and museum complex rolled into one, guarded by a massive statue of “El Che” himself. Casas Particulares in Santa Clara you'll find a lot, right in the center of the city.

Cuba Beach: Villa Clara

The northern coast of Villa Clara is home a number of small islands with some amazing virgin beaches. Along with Cayo Santa Maria, there’s Las Brujas, Fragoso, Cobos, Ensenachos and Frances Cayo.  The beaches here remain untouched by tourism but this is changing fast.

  • Keys "Cayo Santa María" & "Cayo Las Brujas"

    Two of the best beaches are on Cayo Santa Maria and Cayo Las Brujas.

    Cayo Santa María

    Known as the “White Rose” of the Jardines del Rey Archipelago, Cayo Santa Maria is a small paradise island just 13 kilometers long and two kilometers wide. This virgin beach has brilliant fine white sands and glistening blue waters. There are three hotels on Cayo Santa Maria run by the hotel chain "Sol Melia".Santa Maria has over 11 kilometers of fine white sandy beach, plus a wealth of flora and fauna.
    The diving here is top class, with a colorful variety of coral and crystal clear waters teaming with tropical fish. There are over 24 dive sites here on this small island.

    Cayo Las Brujas

    The other key "Cayo Las Brujas" is a tiny castaway type island with just under two kilometers of pristine white sandy beach. The white sands and sparkling waters are some of the purest your likely to see in the whole of the Caribbean. Both Cayos are home to large numbers of plant and animal species that can be found nowhere else in Cuba.

  • Cayo Las Brujas

    Las Brujas es una pequeña isla con poco menos de dos kilómetros de playa. Las arenas blancas y aguas cristalinas son algunas de las más limpias que probablemente se puedan encontrar en todo el Caribe. Además de albergar una pequeña y acogedora villa, al igual que Cayo Santa María es el hogar de un gran número de especies vegetales y animales endémicos de la zona.

  • Baños de Elguea

    Se trata de un balneario con con manantiales ricos en sulfuros donde la temperatura puede alcanzar los 50ºC. Se ofrecen terapias de barro, masajes e hidroterapia. El sitio goza de muy buena reputación por sus tratamientos medicinales.
