The magnificent beaches and crystal-clear waters make Cayo Santa Maria the perfect spot for taking long, romantic walks, swimming in the sea or just relaxing under the sun. The beaches are home to ancient coral reefs, so it is recommended to bring water shoes and sandals for walking.
Activities & Attractions

The largest dolphinarium in Latin America is located near the island and is a must visit for swimming with the dolphins and taking in a sea lion show.
