Cuba: Nature and Foreign Investments

Most of Cuba, a tourist destination in the Caribbean, contains in its geography enormous potential for nature-related forms, important added value in the entertainment industry.

Dozens of kilometers of excellent beaches, crystal clear and warm waters add up to treasures of flora and fauna, with sites where even man's presence have been rare.

Marked by a diversity distributed in more than 4,000 cays and islets, Cuba is also a stronghold for the various alternatives of nature tourism, including bird watching.

Cuban avifauna is very diverse, with more than 350 species on the islands and cays that make up the country, with emphasis on marine and forest regions also marked by a high degree of endemism.

The investor interest is reflected in the agreement between the People of Cuba Camping business group and the French company Campéoles.

That pact aims to identify possible areas of investment in the high standard camping, a form of nature tourism which has 92 facilities on the island.

More than 60 percent of the territory of Cuba is made up of calcareous rocks, which together with the great influence of glaciers and climate periods, provided that the territory has formed the largest caves in the region.

Specialized entities accounted throughout the island more than 10,000 caves, many of which have 25 million years of evolution.

One of the main attractions is Cienaga de Zapata (Zapata Swamp), part of the Great Natural Park of Montemar, and brings together in a single region beaches and sparkling blue waters, exotic forests, rivers, lakes, flooded caverns, natural pools, virgin areas and sheets.

Mountain ecosystems in the Caribbean country do not escape the dynamic growth of the sector, and many of the offers include excursions and stays in those areas.
