The Cuban archipelago, a fast-growing tourist destination in the Caribbean region, offers a wide range of natural, historic and cultural attractions that are available for thousands of vacationers from all over the world who visit the island nation every year.
Dozens of kilometers of excellent beaches of fine sand and crystal-clear water are complemented by well-preserved exuberant nature and are available for vacationers interested in ecotourism.
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.
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.
Others come to Cuba to practice parachuting, scuba diving and carting races, which take place in several tourist resorts, thus contributing to strengthening the interrelation between sports and tourism.
Three dozen specialized dive centers operate throughout the country, where tourists can take initiation courses and dive in coral reefs and caverns under international standards for that activity.
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.
The fusion of races and customs, a process that lasted several centuries, led to a single culture that is made up of African, aboriginal, Chinese, French and, of course, Spanish elements, thus creating a one-of-a-kind mix.
Cities characterized by their Spanish-colonial architectural style in perfect state of preservation, hotels linked to plastic arts, cultural heritage sites and a broad program of festivities and events are part of the country's tourist offer.
The country's beauty can also found underground, as more than 60 percent of Cuban territory is made up of calcareous rocks from the glacial period, creating the largest caverns in the region.
Traditional tourist options are complemented by a hotel infrastructure that provides accommodation, excellent cuisine and extrahotel activities.
