Museo de las
Parrandas en Remedios
The appearance and
further development of traditional parties of the Remedios municipality,
identified as "Parrandas remedianas", are shown in the museum. Since
the moment of its appearance, this sort of carnival competes with its analogues
at the locations of Vueltas and Camajuaní. The museum exhibits models, lamps,
garments, and many other objects that identify this homely territory.

Clara Province Beaches
Brujas and Santa Maria Cayos
Brujas and Santa Maria Cayos-together with Fragoso, Cobos, Ensenachos and
Frances Cayos-just off the northern coast of Villa Clara Province, constitute an
island paradise with over ten and a half miles (17 km) of beaches and virgin
nature that are gradually being opened to tourism.
"the white rose of the Jardines del Rey Archipelago" , Santa
Maria is the last and largest of the cayos. Together with Las Brujas and
Ensenachos Cayos, it is linked to terra firma by an impressive stone causeway.
Santa Maria is 5 square miles (13 square km) in size. It has over six and a half
miles (11 km) of beaches of excellent quality, plus a wealth of flora and fauna
which can be seen during tours inlands
is a scuba-diving center with 24 well-chosen diving sites, so you can outfit
yourself and see agreat variety of coral and fish in its clear water and virgin
Brujas is a tiny islet whose fine white sand, dazzling sea and untouched nature
make its visitors feel like Robinson Crusoe. It has over a mile of virgin
beaches. Its singlestory cabanas built of a cliff are linked with one another
and with the social areas by wooden bridges, so the local animals-which are
entirely harmless-can be move around freely. On both Cayos are large numbers of
endemic plants and animals.
Santa María is a paradisiacal key off the northern coast of Cuba covered by
lush tropical vegetation, with fine white sand beaches kissed by clear turquoise
blue waters. Sun, beach and nature combined! You can ride the waves on a
catamaran, go snorkeling along the coral reef barrier, trek though the area, go
cycling or horseback riding.
& How to Get There
Cayos are just off the northern coast of Villa Clara Province, in Central Cuba.
Santa Clara, the capital of the province, which is around 62 miles (255
km) east of Havana. They are linked to terra firma by one of the main
engineering works in Cuba of the 20th century: an ecological stone causeway
built 30 miles (48 km) into the sea, with 45 bridges so as not to adversely
affect the ecosystems and sea currents in the area. In addition to this means of
access, both Las Brujas Cayo and Santa Clara have airports that can handle small
and medium-sized planes.
