Cayo Santa Maria lies at the western end of the Archipielago de Sabana-Camaguey, 25 km west of Cayo Guillermo. Between 1989 and 1996, a massive 48km causeway called ``El Pedraplen`` was constructed across the Bahia Buena Vista from the port of Caibarien at a cost of 100 million pesos. Included in the design were 45 bridges to allow an exchange of tidal waters, an improvement over the earlier Cayo Coco causeway. Paving was completed in 1999, just as Las Brujas Airport was being built on Cayo Las Brujas, 45km northwest of Caibarien. The massive development is part of a plan to build 28 beach hotels with a total of 10.000 rooms in this previously inaccessible realm of low coral cays.
