Cuba’s Top Four ‘not to be missed’ City and Beach Tourist Attractions
Travellers who embark an a journey to discover the beauty of Cuba should not miss out on the island’s most interesting landmarks. Beautiful scenery, lovely beaches, historical cities, mangrove forests as well as Caribbean islands – Cuba offers it all. Hereby a list of the seven most dominant tourist attractions in Cuba.
The bustling city of Havana, which is the island’s capital, is the country’s main commercial, economic and communication center. It has an ideal location facing the Florida Straits and its bay. As the main tourism destination due to its centuries-old history, its beaches, the incredible cultural wealth of the colonial center of Old Havana as well as its mix of architectural styles, it has a lot to offer. Old Havana is the best example of colonial architecture on the island. Having being declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982 to preserve the city’s historical and architectural heritage, the part of Old Havana has preserved some of the nicest buildings, squares, buildings, historical monuments and museums from its colonial past.
With its over 20 kilometers of beautiful beaches, Varadero is one of the most popular tourist locations in Cuba. Its idyllic coastline is filled with white sand and offers sun throughout the year with a great choice of hotel accommodation to choose from. As a true paradise for scuba diving and snorkelling, this region of Cuba is also home to an extraordinary marine biodiversity such as Playa el Coral and the sea cave Hoyo Azul Ojo del Mégano.
3. Santiago de Cuba
Santiago de Cuba is the country’s second most important city, home to colonial architecture and stepped streets which make their way through the scenic mountainous terrain of the Sierra Maestra. Two UNESCO World Heritage sites found here are some of the most unique tourist attractions on the island: the archaeological landscape of the first coffee plantations and the Castillo de San Pedro de la Roca which is considered the most complete and best preserved example of Spanish military architecture in America.
Having been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the city of Trinidad features well preserved architecture. The fascinating history can be admired with its churches, its stately mansions, the traditional squares and the cobbled streets. The coral reefs of Playa Ancón and the lush vegetation of the river gorges of the Escambray Mountains, complement the city attractions in the regions where mangrove forests are found.
