To drive along a pedraplén (causeway) is an incredible experience, especially the longest one in the world, going from Caibarién to Santa María CayCuba, around 48 kilometers along which you’ll have the feeling of driving over the sea. When the sea is calm there are no waves and the sky is mirrored on the water’s surface, giving the impression that the horizon has disappeared and that you’re driving across a flat world.
