Cuba: Cultural Options for Tourism
Date: APR 23, 2007
Other Reports

Cuba's tourism industry, one of the fastest-growing sectors in the Caribbean Island's economy, benefits from unique traditional sun and beach attractions, which are complemented by the country's history, culture and traditions.

Dozens of kilometers of excellent beaches, characterized by crystal-clear water, fine white sand and pristine nature, are combined with elements of Cuban society to design an excellent offer for the most demanding tourists.

Fusions of races and customs in a centuries-old process gave way to Cuban culture, which is made up of African, aboriginal, Chinese, French and, of course, Spanish elements, creating a unique and rich combination at the same time.

Cuba's cultural heritage, forged for centuries, is a good reason for thousands of foreign tourists to spend their vacations in the Caribbean Island.

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.

The country's nightlife has its maximum attraction in the Tropicana cabarets – located in the City of Havana, Varadero and Santiago – or in facilities that recreate the decoration and atmosphere of the 1950s.

Tourists can also participate in popular festivities, especially the traditional carnivals in Havana and Santiago de Cuba, whose origin dates back to the Spanish colonial period.

Some of the most popular carnivals are the so-called "Parrandas of Remedios", which have a centuries-old history, and the "Parrandas of Bejucal", two events that involve all residents in the aforementioned towns.

Cuba also has 120 art galleries, antiquity shops and exhibitions halls, in addition to nearly 260 museums and more than 80 theaters.

The island's cultural program includes many meetings, workshops, festivals, congresses and specialized courses, which are designed to meet everyone's needs and interests.

Among those events are the annual international ballet courses and many festivals, including Spain's Imprint, Golden Boleros, Cubadisco, the Ibero-American Cultural Festival, the International Jazz Plaza Festival and the much-expected Fire Festival, which is held in the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba and is a link par excellence between the island nation and the Caribbean.

All these activities are an invitation for foreign vacationers to get acquainted with Cuba's culture and traditions, which are true examples of authenticity, professional rigor and frankness.

Cuba's many cultural options are key elements in the Caribbean Island's tourist product and one of the main tourist attractions at present.
