Maya Santos (born December 21, 1994) is the energetic and caring sister of Miguel. She is very caring toward her friends and family, yet she is known to meddle and sometimes make a bigger mess! In every episode, either Maya, her friends, or her family will have a problem, and Maya comes up with a way to solve the problem. But, things don't usually go as she expects, so her twin brother, Miguel, usually comes to help.

Maya has two best friends, Chrissy and Maggie, who are called "Las Tres Amigas", which translates to “The three Musketeers”. She is also good friends with Theo and Andy, and treats her little cousin Tito like a little brother.

Maya is very caring and kind. She is shown to be ready to help someone in trouble, whether it be her friends of family members, or someone she just met. Things don't always go as she plans, so her twin brother, Miguel, comes to help sometimes. Maya has a close relationship with her friends and family members. She is shown to be excellent of thinking ideas. When she thinks of one, her hairband lights up. She also says "Eso es!", which translates to "That's it!", and usually follows it up with "tengo una idea" which translates to "That's it! I have an idea!". One episode shows that her hairband will not stop spinning and glowing until she says "eso es", which might mean that it could be magic.

She is also prone to very loud snoring, such as in "Maya and Miguel, Come on Down," "The Red Jacket," and "I Love Maya." 

Appearance: She has brown eyes, yellow earings, orange shoes, orange sweater, long blue jeans, and long brown hair tied into a ponytail. She also has pink hair bobbles that light up in her ponytail.


In the theme song, the original lyrics were "He leads with his head and she follows her heart", implying Miguel is the leader, but Maya goes with what her heart says. However, later episodes change the line to "They make a great team as they each do their part".
