The 5 Best Tourist Places in Cuba
Fascinating capital of Cuba, distinguished in 2013 with the Travellers' Choice award as one of the ten best destinations in the Caribbean, seducing by its nostalgic aspect, where the time seems not to have passed, with cars of the forties that still walk among its streets and legendary cabarets that revive the glamour of other times.
More than twenty kilometers of dreamy beaches have made Varadero one of the world's most renowned tourist spots in Cuba. The coast captivates with its white sand that resembles talcum powder, warm and transparent waters, environments of exuberant vegetation, sunshine all year round and exceptional hotel infrastructure.
3. Santiago de Cuba
Known as the Capital of the Caribbean, it is the second most important city in the country, home to beautiful colonial architecture and staggered streets that make their way through the mountainous geography of the Sierra Maestra.
Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it corresponds to one of the tourist places in Cuba that has best preserved its architecture, fascinating because of its colonial appearance that makes it seem frozen in time, among beautiful churches, stately homes, squares and cobblestone streets.
5. King's Gardens
Set of keys or small islands that make up the Sabana-Camagüey archipelago, among idyllic landscapes of tropical vegetation, exotic birds, coral reefs, white sands and turquoise waters.
Cayo Coco, the most touristy of its islands, concentrates most of the hotel infrastructure, seducing visitors with its 22 kilometers of beaches surrounded by coconut palms and mangroves. Cayo Guillermo, with less extension and less tourist development, is however, considered the most beautiful, home to the highest dunes in the Caribbean and almost virgin beaches that are among the most beautiful in Cuba.
