Cuba: History, Nature and Beaches
Date: JUN 22, 2009
Other Reports

The Cuban archipelago, a strategic destination in the Caribbean region, offers a wide range of tourist options based on the country's history and nature.

Traditional sun and beach options are complemented by centuries-old cities, many of which were founded during the Spanish colonial period and hold well-preserved architectural attractions.

In eastern Cuba, tourists can visit the town of Morón, founded in May 1543 by families from Sancti Spiritus and sailors in search of adventures and fortune along Cuba's north coast.

Morón is also known as the City of the Rooster, in allusion to the symbol of the town, a rooster, which is based on a legend from Spanish colonial times and has become a special attraction for tourism.

The town's architectural style is eclectic, characterized by houses decorated with glazed tiles, wooden banisters and iron-wrought railings with geometric shapes.

Also in eastern Cuba, 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.

The town of Puerto Padre, nicknamed the Blue Village or the City of Mills, stands out in Las Tunas province.

As a singular element, one of few freshwater springs in Cuba is located off its waterfront drive, flowing into the sea and giving the town a distinctive touch for tourism.

Also in eastern Cuba, Las Tunas province offers 35 pristine beaches along more than 260 kilometers of irregular coastline, where several species of Cuban birds can be watched in such sites as the Bay of Malagueta. The province also holds the largest population of American crocodiles in the Caribbean region.

More than 20 kilometers of beaches run along Camagüey's north coast, turned into a true natural swimming pool by the country's largest coral reef, which is some 200 meters off the coastline.

Eastern Holguín province boasts 14 major cities, including Banes – which is considered Cuba's archeological capital – and Gibara – which is well preserved and boasts a beautiful Spanish colonial architecture.

Eight beach zones, several keys, natural parks and extrahotel establishments are available for tourists, as well as excellent beaches such as Guardalavaca, Estero Ciego, Esmeralda and Don Lino, just to mention some.
