Cienfuegos: Nautical Activities and History in Central Cuba

All kinds of options for travelers characterize Cuba's leisure industry today, which is backed up by numerous attractions such as sun, beach, culture and history, which are found anywhere throughout the largest Antillean Island.

That broad range of offers is present in all Cuban provinces, some of which make emphasis on specific activities that turn the region into a unique destination for leisure, according to their individual characteristics.

One of the regions that stand out is the central province of Cienfuegos, whose capital city is known among nationals and foreigners as the Pearl of the South because of its beauty, design and hospitability.

Supported by tourism program linked to the province's potential for nautical activities and its historic-cultural traditions, Cienfuegos has become a must in many tourism programs on the Caribbean Island.

Cienfuegos was founded as the Villa de Fernandina de Jagua by Don Luis D'Clouet y Pietre in 1918 under a majagua tree, which was taken as a reference to design the streets that made up the city's nucleus.

Around that area, situated today at the José Martí Park, were built the most important official, religious and domestic institutions of the city, which is characterized by wide and symmetrical streets.

The city has many natural attractions, including the Bay of Cienfuegos, a pillar for the industrial and tourist development of the region, and the Trinidad mountain range, whose highest point is the San Juan Peak (1,150 meters above sea level).

An extensive fluvial network made up of the Damují, Caonao, Arimao, Yaguanabo and Hanabanilla rivers, whose names remind us of the aboriginal people who inhabited the Cuban archipelago over five centuries ago, covers the region.

The Caribbean Sea bathes Rancho Luna and El Inglés beaches, which are ideal spots for diving, since that area boasts the coral column known as Notre Dame, which is six meters tall and resembles the world-famous church in Paris.

Several dozens of diving sites allow vacationers to enjoy the beauty of Cuba's sea bottoms, where they can watch the remnants of Spanish ships, which are inhabited by numerous species of mollusks, sponges and schools of multicolored fish.

The capital city, a stronghold for tourism in central Cuba, preserves, according to experts, the peculiar attraction granted by a historic center characterized by big columns and spacious porches, which are harmonically integrated into the architectural style of more modern buildings.

Cienfuegos Province is the birthplace of the composer and singer Benny Moré, also known as the "Bárbaro del Ritmo" because he cultivated most Cuban musical genres, who was born in the town of Santa Isabel de las Lajas.

For all this, thousands of travelers who visit central Cuba every year can enjoy many tourist offers in a unique region for leisure.
