Cuba: Nature and Culture in Tourism

The Cuban archipelago, a tourist destination par excellence in the Caribbean region, has nature and culture as two major pillars to develop the leisure industry.

For recreation, Cuba offers its unique nature, which is characterized by high endemism and is complemented by hundreds of kilometers of excellent beaches of white fine sand and crystal-clear water.

Cuba'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.

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.

Three dozens of specialized dive center operate throughout the country, where vacationers can take initiation courses and dive in coral reefs and caverns, under strict international standards for that activity.

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 Caribbean region.

Cuba's fauna consists of 16,500 species, including some zoological groups whose endemism exceeds 90 percent. The native flora is made up of more than 6,300 species 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.

Cities with a well-preserved Spanish colonial architecture, hotels linked to plastic arts, patrimonial sites and a busy schedule of celebrations and festivities make up Cuba's tourist offer.

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.

The wide range of cultural options in Cuba, in addition to its history and traditions, are key elements in the Caribbean island's tourist product and one of its main attractions for foreign vacationers.
