David & I love to travel. We love to travel South in the Winter to escape the cold. Believe it or not this is our very first time to stay at a resort for an entire week!
Our choice Winter getaway is cruising! This year, however,we are in Cuba. We are here for the wedding and it’s also a great way to see if we like all inclusive resort vacations. We flew into Santa Clara Airport and then took a bus to the resort. ( Our very own Wedding Group bus)
Just off Cuba’s north coast is the inviting resort destination of Cayo Santa Maria. With its white sand beaches, azure waters, and range of resorts, a vacation here is full of sunshine and relaxation. The area is known for its beaches, and has become famous for tourists that flock to its shores to step away from reality and enjoy the Cuban hospitality, heat, and landscape.
Cayo Santa Maria is an island on the north of Cuba in the Jardines del Rey archipelago, connected to mainland Cuba by a 48-kilometer causeway. With more than 10-kilometers of pristine, white sand beaches lapped by crystal clear blue waters. Flights from Canada to Cayo Santa Maria arrive at the Santa Clara airport and then take a bus transfer approximately 1.5 hours from Cayo Santa Maria to the resort district on the island and across the causeway from mainland Cuba. Due to Cayo Santa Maria’s location, on an island just off of the mainland north coast of Cuba, the area is known for its resort community, but little else beyond the beach and poolside activities.
So…What to do a whole week in one place?
Well seeing as we were there for the wedding, a bit of time was spent making sure everything was ready for Saturday and then it was beach time, eating, pool time, eating, eating, entertainment, coffee and check mail, eating, and LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of walking. Melia las Dunas resort is large and so we spent a lot of time all week walking just getting to places.
We had so much fun…
Tomorrow see what else we did!
