New Tourist Options in Cuba

Cuba's tourism sector, which benefits from the Caribbean Island's historic, cultural and natural assets, is also based on a wide range of options for thousands of foreign vacationers who visit the country every year.

The country's tourism infrastructure consists of large hotels and small buildings that have been turned into inns.

In Havana, the country's major tourist destination, there are establishments like the Plaza Hotel, located in the city's historic heart.

The oldest hotel in Havana is the Inglaterra, which was inaugurated on December 23, 1875, and was named after the major world power at the time, England.

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.

Among the establishments in Old Havana is the Beltrán de Santa Cruz Hotel, which offers 11 rooms and is housed in an elegant 18th-century mansion near the Old Square.

Another famous establishment is the Santa Isabel, which is housed in the former house of the Count of Santovenia, built in the early 18th century and later sold to an US businessman, who turned it into a hotel that operated from 1867 to 1887.

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.

Some tourists come to Cuba to practice parachuting, scuba diving and carting races, which take place in several tourist resorts, thus contributing to strengthening the interrelation between sports and tourism.

Three dozen diving centers operate throughout the country, where divers can take initiation courses and dive in coral reefs and caverns following international standards for that nautical activity.
