The Cuban archipelago, which has a privileged location in the Caribbean Sea, boasts natural, cultural and historic attractions that contribute to the fast development of the so-called smokeless industry.

One of those sites is Havana, a tourist destination par excellence, which treasures centuries-old traditions.

The former Villa de San Cristóbal de La Habana, is one of the best exponents of Spanish-colonial architecture in Cuba. Havana's notoriety dates back to the 16th century.

In Havana's historic heart, declared Humankind's Heritage by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), nearly 140 buildings were constructed in the 16th and 17th centuries, another 200 were built in the 18th century, and more than 460 in the 19th century.

The five-century-old city also shows distinctive characteristics, including the famous Prado Promenade and the well-known Alameda de Paula. The latter was built in the late 18th century. The two places were busy areas frequented by local residents during the Spanish-colonial times.

Havana's buildings combine different architectural styles, including Renaissance, art deco, Mudejar, baroque, neoclassicism, eclecticism, art nouveau and Cuban baroque.

In central Cuba, in Villa Clara province, tourists can visit the Cubanacán Protected Area, a true natural paradise and a safe haven for amphibians, reptiles, mammals and birds, including ten endemic species.

The Escambray mountain range, characterized by steep slopes, winding roads and exuberant nature, is the habitat of the last flocks of parrots living in the province.

Camagüey, also known "the city of tinajones (large earthenware jars), combines modernism and history in an environment where new buildings and old constructions give the city a peculiar touch.

In central-eastern Cuba, vacationers can enjoy excellent beaches, nature, culture and history in Ciego de Avila province.

Off Ciego de Avila's north coast is Jardines del Rey (King's Gardens), which is Cuba's fastest-growing tourist destination. The province also boasts many monuments and historic sites.

Precisely, one of those historic sites is the Júcaro-Morón Defensive Belt, one of the most important military monuments in the Caribbean region and Spain's largest fortification in Cuba and Latin America in the 19th century.

Tourists interested in Cuba's history can visit some forts, devastated by time and surrounded by plantations and sugar factories that ratify the region's agricultural potential.
