Cuba's tourism sector, an essential element in the country's economy, stands out for its natural, historic and cultural attractions, and unique recreational options in the Caribbean region.
The island nation also has a broad hotel infrastructure, characterized by its diversity in the dimension, design and location of the establishments.
Precisely, Cuba's hotel sector combines large establishments and small buildings turned into lodging facilities.
One of the newest establishments is the NH Krystal Laguna Hotel, on Cayo Coco.
The islet's pristine nature is complemented by the amenities of the modern four-star-plus hotel, which offers 690 rooms.
Hotels such as Nacional de Cuba, Plaza and Inglaterra are among the most significant establishments in Cuba and provide a wide range of offers in the historic heart of the Cuban capital.
One of the most interesting options is the Raquel Hotel, which offers 25 luxury air-conditioned double rooms distributed on three beautifully decorated floors.
Unique establishments for cigar aficionados like the Conde de Villanueva Hotel or monastery-style hotels like Los Frailes are complemented by facilities like Palacio de San Miguel, an attractive option for those looking for culture and intimacy.
The establishment, which has iron-wrought staircases and balconies, offers ten rooms distributed on three floors overlooking the Bay of Havana and equipped with satellite TV and air conditioning.
Tourists can also stay at La Rusa Hotel, in Baracoa, the first village founded by the Spanish conquistadors in Cuba. It is a cozy and familiar 12-room establishment by the sea.
Also in eastern Cuba is the Hotel La Gran Piedra, the only establishment in the country that accommodates guests at 1,225 meters above sea level. It is surrounded by a breathtakingly beautiful natural environment in Santiago de Cuba.
Considered a cozy tourist complex in the mountain, the hotel has the additional attraction of being surrounded by the ruins of ancient coffee farms that were declared Humankind's Cultural Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
