Cuba, a tourist destination par excellence for thousands of domestic and foreign vacationers, offers attractions that combine the traditional options of sun and beach with culture and history.
Summer is the most preferred season by tropical climate lovers, mainly to enjoy the island’s recreational and leisure attractions.
Although the average temperature in Cuba is about 24.6° Celsius, the summer season generates a stampede of vacationers towards the white-sanded beaches of crystal clear waters that surround the island.
In western Cuba, the famous Varadero beach resort – 22 beach kilometers located in the Hicacos peninsula – is available for those who want to enjoy a sea of the most varied shades, which bathes a wide strip of white and fine sand.
Natural and biosphere reserves, natural landscapes and protected areas make up a wide network of offers characterized by their richness, excellent conservation and unique features that distinguish the region.
Also, scuba diving enthusiasts can enjoy 70,000 kilometers of the island’s shelf, with about 5,000 kilometers of coastline bathed by the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.
Three dozen specialized diving centers are available throughout the country, including facilities for beginners’ courses and diving excursions in caverns and coral reefs, in keeping with the international standards for the activity.
Cuba also has several places enriched by the existence of thermal waters with therapeutic characteristics.
During summer, many visitors seek the pleasant environment offered by a great number of restaurants that include options of the Cuban and international cuisine, and where customers can enjoy the most relevant dishes of the country’s culinary history.
The traditional Cuban dishes are complemented by European variants from Spain, France and Italy.
Asia and the Middle East are also represented in many restaurants and cafeterias that include, among others, gastronomic offers from the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arab and Hindu cuisine.
Also, the above said is supported by a culture resulting from the merging of races, customs and traditions that for centuries, gave rise to a unique model that combines African, Spanish, Indigenous, Chinese, and French features.
