Cuba: Tourism and Environment

Cuba, a tourist destination par excellence in the Caribbean region, offers a wide range of options, benefiting from the archipelago's natural wealth without neglecting the protection of the environment.

Dozens of kilometers of coastline, with fine white sand and warm waters are excellent options for those who bet on Cuba to spend their vacations.

The country's cultural wealth and traditions are complemented by architectural treasures from the Spanish colonial period and a unique natural environment, which are complemented by many natural, ecological and biosphere reserves, protected areas and national parks.

Cuban fauna is very diverse and consists of more than 350 species birds that live on islets and keys throughout the country, many of which are endemic.

In addition, 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.

Tours to the country's mountain ecosystems are also highly demanded by foreign tourists who bet on Cuba to spend their vacations.

The potential of ecotourism lies in the Cuba's relief, which consists of four main mountain ranges that cover about 21 percent of the island's territory and hold 37 percent of the country's forests.

Experts say there are more than 10,000 caves in Cuba, many of which are more than 25 million years old, especially the Santo Tomas cavern system, in western Cuba, which is about 45 kilometers long under the Quemados Mountain Range, and Cueva del Indio, which is crossed by the San Juan River.

Another site that is visited by thousands of tourists every year is the Bellamar Cave, in western Matanzas province, which is 23 kilometers long and 300,000 years old, is made up of three caverns that were a single cave in ancient times: Bellamar, El Jarrito and Soto Jíbaro.

Diving can be practiced in more than 70,000 kilometers of Cuban insular platform, which has some 5,000 kilometers of coast bathed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

Nearly 6,500 species of fish, crustaceans, sponges and mollusks, as well as many varieties of corals, turn the island into one of the best-preserved ecosystems in the region.
