Cuba, a fast-growing destination in the Caribbean region, offers a wide range of attractions including sun and beach options, culture, tradition and history.
Cuba's westernmost province, Pinar del Río, stands out as a stronghold for nature tourism, due to its pristine environment populated by many animal and plant species.
Experts say that as Spanish colonization began in eastern Cuba, the western part of the country remained almost intact, so most of the endemic flora and fauna was preserved.
In addition to its fertile soils, mineral resources (copper and gold) and the world-famous Havana cigars, Pinar del Río's best-preserved treasure is its natural environment, including such beautiful places as the Viñales Valley, which was declared a World Cultural Landscape by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
Precisely, most lodging capacities in the province are in that region, although the capital city also has a few hotels where vacationers can stay.
One of those establishments is the Pinar del Río Hotel, which is at a few- minute drive from downtown and provides high-quality personalized services.
From the hotel, guests can visit places of breathtaking beauty such as the tobacco fields in Vueltabajo and the Guayabita del Pinar Liquor Factory.
The liquor, which has been produced since the 19th century, is made with a wild fruit that only grows in Pinar del Río. The liquor comes in two variants: dry and sweet.
The hotel offers 136 air-conditioned rooms and 13 cabanas equipped with satellite TV, and provides excellent gastronomic options in its restaurants, which serve dishes from Cuban and international cuisine.
Centuries-old buildings stand majestically in the provincial capital. That is the case of the Cathedral, built in 1883, and the José Jacinto Milanés Theater, a wooden structure constructed in 1838.
In the region of Soroa, tourists can stay in a Hotel and Villas, which are surrounded by a pleasant climate, natural, historic and cultural resources, and excellent medicinal waters.
Horse-riding excursions and different modalities of trekking in the company of specialized guides are part of Soroa's large tourist offer, which includes excursions to the ruins of French coffee farms from the 19th century, the Bayate River, and El Brujillo-La Comadre countryside community.
With these options, Cuba's westernmost region offers a one-of-a-kind tourist program in which nature and beautiful countryside landscapes prevail.
