Cuba: Health, Tourism and Nature

The Cuban archipelago, full of natural attractions, has the potential necessary to develop recreational options linked to nature and health.

In that regard, Cuban tourist authorities have designed recreational programs that combine leisure with medical treatment.

For that purpose, the country's natural resources have been used successfully in a scientific way to provide medical treatments to tourists.

That is the case of San José del Lago, in central Sancti Spiritus province, 350 kilometers east of Havana, where medicinal water is diuretic and is rapidly absorbed and eliminated by the human body.

San José del Lago is also an option to improve your health due to its thermal mineral-medicinal water, traditional medicine treatments (acupuncture and shiatsu), mud therapy and psychological treatments.

In western Pinar del Río province, the fame of San Diego de los Baños dates back to 1632. Experts there treat several diseases with acupuncture, medicinal mud, apitherapy and natural medications, among other methods of traditional medicine.

Excellent beaches, traditions and cultural and historic sites are combined to design one-of-a-kind attractive options to thousands of foreign vacationers who visit the country every year.

Havana, founded nearly five centuries ago, holds emblematic institutions that treasure a major part of Cuban traditions, culture and history.

In addition, thousands of hotel rooms are complemented by an infrastructure of recreational, sports and commercial centers, as well as restaurants, where gastronomy plays a major role.

One of Havana's most popular places is the Malecon sea drive, where waves break against the concrete wall.

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.

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.

Nature enthusiasts can also enjoy their stay in Cuba, where ecotourism has gained ground over the past few years.

Natural and biosphere reserves, natural landscapes and protected areas make up a wide range of offers that are well preserved and are unique in the region.
