Cuba: A Natural Scenery for Tourism
Date: JAN 21, 2008
Other Reports

Dozens of kilometers of excellent beaches, the tropical climate of the Cuban archipelago and a strategic location in the Caribbean region create a unique natural scenery for tourism and recreation.

Cultural and historic options are combined with centuries-old traditions and customs that are present anywhere in Cuba.

In addition, the Caribbean Island has a unique natural wealth that favors the design of tourist programs that promote the country's offers for nature lovers.

Therefore, getting closer to nature from a beach or city adds value to the tourist product, especially in Cuba, whose fauna is made up of 16,500 species and where more than 90 percent of zoological groups are endemic.

Moreover, the autochthonous flora consists of more than 6,300 varieties of different colors and shapes.

Natural and biosphere reserves, natural landscapes, national parks and protected areas create a varied offer characterized by its excellent preservation and unique features in the region.

One of those exclusive places is in eastern Cuba, more precisely on Cayo Saetía, at the entrance of the Bay of Nipe. It is considered the largest game preserve in the country and is inhabited by many species.

More than 50 percent of the 42-square-meter islet is covered with forests inhabited by whitetail deer, zebras and antelopes.

Hunting on Cayo Saetía follows national and international regulations to prevent damaging the local habitat and natural environment.

Visitors use appropriate vehicles to travel on the islet, where they can find wild boars, buffaloes, ostriches, peacocks, zebras, tocororos (Cuban trogons), antelopes, hutias and wild bulls.

Natural attractions are also found in western Cuba, especially on Cayo Levisa, off the north coast of Pinar del Río province. Tourists access the key by boat, which departs from Palma Rubia.

Three kilometers of excellent beaches and 23 dive sites turn Cayo Levisa into an excellent place for scuba diving and snorkeling, thanks to the region's crystal-clear water and one of the largest coral reefs in the world.

The coral reef is inhabited by about 500 species of fish, 200 species of sponges and a wide range of mollusks, crustaceans and other marine animals.

Also in Pinar del Río is the Viñales Valley – declared a Cultural Landscape and Humankind's Heritage – which is characterized by peculiar round-topped hills, called "mogotes".

Closer to the Cuban capital, Soroa – also known as Cuba's Rainbow – offers tourists its 22-meter waterfall, where they can take a refreshing swim all year around.
