Discover the Wonders

Not knowing to people, my hometown is a nice place to live. We’ve got several extravagant beach resorts, breathtaking views from up hill, quality schools, recreation spots and good people.

Santa Maria is a municipality in the Province of Davao del Sur. It’s a 2 hours drive from the heart of Davao City. The municipality is very accessible since we have 3 bus companies lined up to accommodate the residents and the visitors as well.
