What to do in Cuba


The Cuban revolution has made Cuba famous, but it has other aces up its sleeve to make it known: Its music and its beaches and forests, mixed architecture, smiling people, these are some examples that make it an enchanting destination.
Havana combines the history and the modernity: It is authentic and beautiful but also has some poverty-stricken areas which can’t be ignored. Its fortifications are registered on the UNESCO's world heritage list, but you can also admire the City Museum, the cathedral, the Palace of Captains-Generals, the Cuban Art Museum, Che Guevara Museum, and many other sites, later take a stroll along the Malecon that surrounds the coast, it boasts beautiful colonial buildings.

Trinidad is itself a museum: The Plaza Mayor, Municipal Historic museum, but there are also many places within the country awaiting your visit. The beautiful beaches extend everywhere.

The Pinar del Rio province in the west is full of surprises for fans of fishing, hiking, swimming and bird watchers.

For diving enthusiasts and nature lovers, the Island of Youth is a natural, unspoilt, peaceful area that it would be a shame not to explore.
