Cayo Ensenachos: A Paradise for Tourism

The Cuban archipelago, famous for its first-line coastal resorts like Varadero or Santa Lucía, also holds heavenly beaches on dozens of keys and islets that are part of a unique tourist offer.

In central Cuba, the development of the tourism industry has spread to Cayo Ensenachos, which is part of a large area that is considered a Fauna Refuge inhabited by several species of reptiles, amphibians, fish, birds and mammals, many of which are endemic, in addition to more than 245 plant species.

The region has a complex system of channels between the keys that grants the zone a unique value to develop tourist programs for those who love nature and nautical sports, in addition to sun, sand and sea.

The Bay of Buenavista separates the coast of the islet, which is 30 kilometers away.

Ensenachos is part of more than 500 islets that make up Cayos de la Herradura, which are located in an area of crystal-clear water that covers more than 1,300 square kilometers and is surrounded by the world's second largest coral reef on the north.

With an area of nearly two square kilometers, the key has the best beaches in the region (Los Ensenachos and El Mégano), which are characterized by small waves and a sea full of shades between green and blue.

Visitors can stay at the Hotel Iberostar Ensenachos, the first and only all-inclusive establishment in that secluded area, located on a beach that is 2.6 kilometers long.

The establishment consists of a main building and three areas for accommodation, with 506 rooms and 46 suites overlooking the ocean, the gardens or the swimming pool.

The hotel is at about an hour ride from the Abel Santa María International Airport in Villa Clara, and five minutes from Cayo Las Brujas, where there is a landing strip for small planes.

This paradise is also accessible through causeway built on a foundation of rocks deposited on the sea bottom.

The causeway is 48 kilometers long, from near the town of Caibarién to Cayo Santa María. It has 46 bridges that were designed to allow the normal flow of water and the marine fauna without damaging the marine and land ecosystems.

Due to its design and execution, the causeway is a significant engineering project that won the Puente de Alcántara Award to the Best Ibero-American Civil Work.

Visitors can enjoy nautical sports, tennis, golf, trekking, bicycle and horse-riding excursions, in addition to swimming.

Other options are excursions to nearby places such as Caibarién, a fishermen's town where tourists can enjoy dishes based on seafood in small private restaurants known as "paladares".

Another town to visit is Remedios, whose historic heart is very well preserved and where typical popular parties called "parrandas" are held every year.
