The Cuban archipelago, made up of lots of islands, islets and keys, offers a wide range of tourist options to meet the demands from thousands of vacationers who visit the Caribbean Island every year.
Beaches of fine white sand and warm crystal-clear waters barely touched by humans, nature, history and culture are combined to guarantee a pleasant stay in Cuba.
Cuba's winter marks the beginning of the peak tourist season, when thousands of travelers come to the island to spend their vacations.
A key element to take into consideration is Cuba's centuries-old historic and cultural heritage, which is well preserved in a network of museums.
Cuba has a large infrastructure of 120 art galleries, antique shops and plastic art halls, in addition to nearly 290 museums, including 14 on art, seven on science and technology, five on ethnography and anthropology and 68 on history. It also has more than 80 theaters.
Havana is Cuba's major tourist destination, where vacationers can visit a wide range of facilities and institutions, many of which are unique in the country.
The city's historic heart keeps a one-of-a-kind treasure that complements traditional tourist options.
Hundreds of buildings of several architectural styles, which show the development of Cuban society, make up one-of-a-kind patrimony that has favored the historic evolution of the city.
Tourist authorities' policy in Old Havana is aimed at restoring emblematic buildings and turning them into small hotels, where guests can be in direct contact with the noisy environment of the centuries-old city.
The new element in those establishments, run by the company Habaguanex S.A., is that the buildings were restored without changing their architectural style, and were equipped with modern technologies to meet the demands from foreign guests.
Golfers can go to the Varadero Golf Club, where they can enjoy pure air, exuberant vegetation and quietness, elements that are indispensable when practicing that sport.
The club is located on Peñas de San Bernardino, where millionaire Irenne Du Pont de Nemours built a nine-hole golf course in a private land of 180 hectares, a few meters from the coastline on one of the best beaches in the world.
The golf course was designed by architect Les Furber, president of the Canadian company Golf Design Services. It combines several styles, including the classic one, which is characterized by wide streets flanked by trees and wide and unprotected greens.
