We'll be staying in Remedios in late February 2012 (with a hire care) and wanted to take a trip over to Cayo Las Brujas/Ensenachos/Santa Maria. My husand wants us to stay overnight on one of the Cays (probably Cayo Las Brujas) so that we can best enjoy the beaches, but the resorts all seem to be extremely pricey (besides maybe Villa Las Brujas, but it doesn't have the greatest TA reviews & I can't seem to find accurate prices) and we'll be in our third month of a six month Central/South America trip, so won't have a great deal of money.
I was wondering what you guys thought about staying in Remedios an extra night and doing a long day trip over to the Cays, returning to Remedios at the end of the day, versus saying on one of the Cays. Is it that much more worthwhile to stay on the Cays? Will we miss out on a lot if we return to Remedios at the end of the day? We don't know this area at all, so any advice you have would be much appreciated!
