Given the growing number of hotels in the region and there is no housing for employees on the island of Cayo Santa Maria, the Cuban government has decided to construct new buildings to house people who work in tourism, here in Caibarién.

An excellent initiative, as some of those workers remain in the city of Santa Clara and must make the journey of 1 ½ hours every day!

We rented a Jeep to visit this small village. It cost 2 CUC to drive on the causeway. We liked walking in the streets of this small fishing village. It is very quiet and typical to Cuba.

Please note it is better to get back to the hotels before dusk, because the causeway is dark and difficult for driving by car, especially if you are not used to drive by night!

There are good restaurants in the village of Caibarien and Remdios. Do not hesitate, prices are affordable and the food delicious! Since 2001, Cuban are familiar about tourism visiting the town and restaurants in this region.
