Cuba, a tourist destination par excellence in the Caribbean region, promotes new options that combine traditional offers with the country's culture and business opportunities.
That way, new proposals are created to complement a busy schedule of events held in the Caribbean island every year.
Havana and several major Cuban cities host the International Book Fair every year, a true festival of contemporary literature.
Therefore, foreign tourists have privileged access to a major cultural event that is also expected by thousands of Cubans.
The Cuban capital is the natural scenario of the International Trade Fair of Havana, one of the most important business events in Latin America.
Entrepreneurs and executives from all over the world meet in Havana and, at the same time, they enjoy a wide range of tourist activities after long hours of hard work and business meetings.
The country's hotel and service infrastructure, which offers more than 10,000 rooms, complements other tourist modalities such as business trips, cultural tourism, incentives and meetings.
Beaches are concentrated in the so-called Circuito Azul (Blue Circuit), which runs along 15 kilometers of coast east of Havana and where Santa María del Mar is the best beach.
Others prefer to go to Bacuranao, El Mégano, Boca Ciega and Guanabo, which are visited by thousands of tourists who arrive in the Cuban capital every year.
Another major site is the Hemingway Marina, a sort of flag center for nautical activities and famous all over the world as sponsor of major international events, including regattas and fishing tournaments.
The most famous such event is the Ernest Hemingway International Marlin Fishing Tournament, named after the US Literature Nobel Prize winner.
For those sailing near Cuba, the Hemingway Marina is ready to receive them in case of unforeseen events, as its nautical workshop can repair their boats.
The Hemingway Marina Tourist Community is an ideal place for those who love the sea. The facility has shopping centers, Casa del Habano, medical services, naval hardware stores, a Cybercafé, pharmacy and internal transportation, among other options.
The Community, which has a great reputation in Cuba's tourist sector, also has restaurants that serve both Cuban and international dishes.
