Cuba, a fast-growing tourist destination in the Caribbean region, offers a wide range of options, including nature, traditions and culture.
Dozens of excellent beaches are complemented by a rich cuisine inherited from Europe, Africa and Asia.
Typical Cuban dishes have been enriched by elements from European cuisine, including Spanish, French and Italian cuisine. Asia and the Middle East have also contributed dishes from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arab and Indian cuisine, just to mention some of the offers available at Cuban restaurants and cafeterias.
The Cuban archipelago holds a lot of surprises for those who choose to spend their vacations on both the big island and its surrounding keys.
Havana, Cuba's major tourist destination, is one of the best exponents of Spanish colonial architecture in the Caribbean Island, whose notoriety began in the late 16th century.
Also known as known at the time as the Fortified City of the West Indies and the Key to the New World, the Cuban capital is a living museum that exhibits a wide range of architectural styles that show the different stages in the city's development.
Cuba offers diving enthusiasts 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.
Three dozen diving centers operate throughout the country, where divers can take initiation courses and dive in coral reefs and caverns following international standards for that nautical activity.
Another option is sports, considering that many national and international events are held in Cuba every year.
Known all over the world by its results in baseball, boxing, athletics, wrestling, judo and volleyball, Cuba is visited by thousands of tourists who come to enjoy sports events every year.
Entrepreneurs attend fairs and specialized events every year to explore the island nation's business and investment opportunities.
Cuba complements the beauty of its coasts and exuberant nature with its culture and traditions, two essential elements in the island's tourist product.
