CUBA


Back across the causeway, on Cuba itself, is the nation’s fifth largest city, Santa Clara. Here, among the sights, you’ll find superb colonial architecture, monuments to the 1958 Cuban Revolution (this was the site of the final battle), and a cigar factory where, yes, they still faithfully roll their produce by hand. Dominating one of the squares is a huge bronze statue of Che Guevara, dressed in military fatigues and brandishing a rifle. Nearby is the mausoleum containing his and his comrades’ remains.


Access to Cayo Santa Maria from the UK is surprisingly easy, with weekly flights from Manchester. The Santa Clara international airport is an hour and a half away from the island by car, with a transfer that takes you first through scenic Cuban countryside and then across the long causeway. The latter consists of over 40 linked bridges, and one longer bridge designed to allow sea life to pass beneath with the ocean’s natural currents. Thanks to its low impact on the environment, the construction company that built the causeway was given an international engineering award.


As you negotiate this causeway, don’t be surprised if your driver puts his foot down a little: after all, it was here that filmmakers


shot one of the scenes from the Hollywood movie The Fate of the Furious, the eighth instalment in The Fast and the Furious franchise. As you drive across, with the Caribbean Sea glistening on either side, you may want to tighten your seatbelt.


The Hotel Playa Cayo Santa Maria is situated directly on the stunning white sands of Cayo Santa Maria beach. It’s modern in design and features a wide array of services and high-quality amenities such as a spa that offers relaxing and beautifying treatments and a sports club with a variety of All inclusive activities.


(From summer 2018 there will be weekly flights every Saturday from Manchester to Santa Clara international airport. Flight time ten hours.)
