The area around Santa Lucía is blessed with stunning natural attractions. Explore the caverns and isles surrounding the Sierra de Cubitas, or go flamingo-watching along the protected Santa Lucía coastline. Don’t miss Cayo Sabinal, a coral key lined with mangroves, marshes and lagoons and home to masses of butterflies.
Escape to this gorgeous, unspoiled coral key lined with mangroves, marshes and lagoons and watch clouds of butterflies flutter above the lush landscape. Be sure to spend an afternoon at Playa Los Pinos, a standout amid the key’s many beaches, located 22 km from the town of Nuevitas.
Sail along the Santa Lucía coastline to visit a flamingo colony south of Cayo Sabinal. You’re sure to see hundreds of the pretty pink birds, and if you’re lucky, you might even spot a dolphin in Nuevitas Bay.
