Cuba, whose tourist product is characterized by traditional sun and beach options, also provides other attractive offers for both domestic and foreign vacationers.
The Cuban archipelago has a great potential for tourism, including the country's culture, traditions, nature and history.
The warm crystal-clear waters surrounding the island provide visitors with an excellent chance to enjoy nautical activities all year around.
Cuba also offers more than 70,000 square kilometers of insular platform and some 5,000 kilometers of coasts, which are bathed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea and are perfect for scuba diving and snorkeling.
The island's natural assets can be found in more than 4,000 keys and islets where vacationers can enjoy a wide range of options, including bird watching.
Cuban fauna is very diverse and consists of more than 350 species birds that live on islets and keys throughout the country.
Therefore, getting closer to nature from a beach or city adds value to the tourist product, especially in Cuba, whose fauna is made up of 16,500 species and where more than 90 percent of zoological groups are endemic.
Moreover, the autochthonous flora consists of more than 6,300 varieties of different colors and shapes.
Natural and biosphere reserves, natural landscapes, national parks and protected areas create a varied offer characterized by its excellent preservation and unique features in the region.
In that context, Cuba has created an excellent infrastructure to host congresses of all kinds, including sports, commercial and academic meetings, as well as to organize incentive trips.
The patrimonial wealth inherited from the Spanish-colonial period, including buildings, farms and the remains of sugar mills in an excellent state of preservation, also attracts thousands of foreign tourists every year.
Cities with abundant exponents of Spanish colonial architecture in a perfect state of preservation, hotels linked to plastic arts, and patrimonial sites can be found anywhere in the Caribbean island.
