CUBA is the largest of the Caribbean islands. It is an archipelago made up of thousands of islands and keys, including the largest island in the Caribbean sea called “Isla de la Juventud”.
The capital of Cuba is Havana. The language spoken is Spanish. Its climate is tropical and the temperature oscillates between 25 and 35°C throughout the year; You can therefore choose this destination at any time, with the certainty of being able to swim in its splendid beaches with crystal clear waters.
The best period is the dry season (between November and May) even if the other months are still pleasant. Cubans are hospitable, respectful of local beliefs and traditions, so it’s nice to reciprocate the innate friendliness of its inhabitants.
The country has 11.2 million inhabitants, of which 2.5 million reside in Havana.
Cuba was chosen as the best cultural destination in the Caribbean at the 2021 World Travel Awards, which are awarded annually by international experts associated with the World Travel and Tourism Council.
World Heritage Cities (Havana, Trinidad, Cienfuegos, Camaguey); Musical and dance expressions such as Son, Rumba and French Tumba, are some of the attractions that have placed it as a favorite against Barbados, Bermuda, Jamaica, Martinique and Puerto Rico, who are also nominated.
Added to this are places and parks declared Natural Heritage and Biosphere by UNESCO, impressive monumental architectural works in various cities. A lively life in squares and streets, temporarily interrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, is already showing encouraging signs of recovery.
Going on excursions to discover magnificent places included in the UNESCO World Heritage is an unforgettable experience.
OPTIONAL: We recommend City tour of Havana declared a “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO, in a vintage car. Route by car to the city center, along the seafront, main squares, up to the historic center and continue on foot visiting places of historical and cultural interest with a guide in Italian. Return to the hotel by car: €uro 50.00/pax
Small city that for its beauty is also known as the “Pearl of the South”. Founded in 1819 by French settlers, a unique case in the American territories under Spanish colonial domination.
Bathed by the waters of the Caribbean and located in the south-central part of the island, it is a region that produces coffee, tobacco, mangoes and sugar cane, with riches of natural springs and mineral-medicinal waters.
With its French colonial-style atmospheres, harmonized with a genuine and joyful Caribbean soul, it makes this city special.
In 2005 it acquired the status of “World Heritage” from UNESCO, one of the 9 recognitions received by the Republic of Cuba.
It is a seaside resort overlooking the natural Jagua Bay, the most majestic in Cuba, as well as being one of the most important commercial ports. Here, to defend the city from pirate attacks, the Spanish built the beautiful “Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles de Jagua” Fortress at the end of the 18th century.
Colorful and characteristic is the historic center of Cienfuegos, with its narrow-cobbled streets and avenues lined with colonial buildings, of French influence, it has evolved towards more eclectic forms, without the urban landscape losing its general harmony.
Named Cultural Heritage of Humanity in December 1988.
Founded at the beginning of the 16th century, in 1514, it is one of the best-preserved colonial cities in Latin America.
Named the museum city of Cuba or the museum city of the Caribbean, nicknames that anticipate the important historical-artistic heritage, a jewel of colonial art in Latin America. It is a town where it is possible to admire a perfectly preserved urban fabric from the colonial era
Its small historic center can be visited on foot and is divided into squares and narrow streets that maintain the typical original cobblestone; buildings and houses of pastel colors that denote the colonial style with which they were designed by the Spanish.
Famous the church “La Santisima Trinidad”, the squares, historical buildings converted into museums, legacies of the colonial era.
Being the main axis of the sugar trade, it has remained an extremely lively and active city. Walking through Trinidad will give the impression of having been catapulted back, where today’s rhythms are unknown.
GARDENS OF THE KING – SANTA MARIA KEY
UNESCO has declared these small islands: “Biosphere Reserve”.
Off the north coast in the central part of the island, this narrow strip of land emerges in the blue of the Atlantic Ocean. Just over 13 km long and barely 2 km wide, the small island of “Cayo Santa María” is one of the pearls of an archipelago made up of other small coral atolls of fine white sand called the “Jardines del Rey”.
A large strip of coral reef is preserved in its wonderful waters where with luck you can see dolphins. The white beaches, the green of the vegetation and the marine species that live in its waters make it a true jewel.
The island is connected to Cuba by 48 km of the causeway called “El Pedraplén”. It enchants with the nuances of its colors and the variety of fauna and flora. It is no coincidence that the atoll has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO, due to its particular morphological characteristics.
A balance between man and nature that has remained unchanged since long before the arrival of the Spanish in Cuba in the fifteenth century.
