Cuba, a major tourist destination in the Caribbean region, offers a wide range of options, ranging from exuberant nature to its centuries-old culture, history and traditions.
Traditional sun and beach options are a key element in Cuba's tourism industry.
The Cuban archipelago 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.
In addition, nearly 6,500 varieties of fish, crustaceans, sponges and mollusks, and an 850-kilometer coral reef in perfect state of preservation turn the island into one of the best-preserved underwater ecosystems in the region.
The archipelago's geographic location turns Cuba into a corridor for migratory birds that travel long distances from North America to South America and vice versa.
A large number of birds come to Cuba in winter and nest near rivers, lagoons and dams, as well as on the keys, turning the island nation into an excellent place for bird watching.
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.
The Caribbean Island offers architectural assets brought from Spain and carrying a strong European influence from the years that followed the colonization period.
Havana's historic heart, declared Humankind's Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), holds most of the city's museums, churches, cultural centers and buildings from the Spanish colonial period. Old Havana covers an area of 4.5 square kilometers and has a rich colonial architecture and centuries-old customs and traditions.
For those who want to stay in an environment full of centuries-old memories, the company Habaguanex S.A. runs a broad network of hotels in Old Havana.
The hotels housed in centuries-old buildings in Old Havana are highly demanded by foreign tourists looking for a special environment during their stay in the island nation.
Cuba has about 120 art galleries, antique shops and art exhibition halls, in addition to nearly 260 museums and more than 80 theaters, which are excellent options for those looking for more than beach and sun in the Caribbean Island.
