Cuba, a fast-growing destination in the Caribbean region, holds vast areas to develop several tourism modalities.
Beaches, traditions, culture and history go hand in hand as unique and attractive tourist options for thousands of vacationers who visit the island-nation every year.
Sun and beach options are complemented by adventure and incentive programs for those who bet on Cuba to spend their vacations.
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.
In addition, protected areas, biosphere reserves, swamps and regions inhabited by endemic flora and fauna, which can be watched in their entire magnitude, are available to tourists along specialized trails.
At the same time, Havana, which has a nearly-five-centuries-old history, holds emblematic institutions that are closely linked to the country's traditions.
The Inglaterra Hotel is the oldest hotel in Cuba. It was inaugurated on December 23, 1875, and its name honored the world's major power at the time, England. After being rebuilt in 1886, it became the world's best hotel.
The building, which was declared a National Monument and located in a busy area in the so-called Old Havana, has a neoclassic style in which original elements such as tiles from Alicante and railings from Seville, Spain, stand out.
The Hotel Nacional de Cuba is also among the world's top ten Palace Hotels and was the only five-star establishment in the Caribbean region from the 1930s to the 1950s.
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.
Western Matanzas province holds the special marine park Cayo Piedras del Norte, which is an excellent place for scuba diving, and the ecological reserve in Punta Hicacos, a safe haven for 662 species of birds that live in Mangón Lagoon, in addition to the aboriginal pictographs in the caves of Ambrosio and Musulmanes.
In the southern part of that province is the Zapata Swamp Biosphere Reserve, a stronghold for nature tourism, an ideal place for marine spelunking and the largest swamp in the Caribbean region.
