Where to stay in Cayo Santa Maria

Easy transportation to places like Havana makes Cayo Santa Maria a great stop-off point or holiday destination, but its high-end prices and lack of choice may be off-putting to some travelers. Most hotels and apartments are in high demand due to their coastline location, so be sure to book in advance if you plan on visiting Villa Clara Province.
