In this video you will discover the old town of Havana and the historic centers of Trinidad and Camaguey, with their well-preserved colonial buildings, which are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. You will also see other cities that are worth exploring such as Santiago de Cuba, which is Cuba’s second largest city, or Cienfuegos, also called the “Pearl of the South”.
For beach lovers, Cuba offers some of the most spectacular in the world. To the west is the stunning beach of Maria La Gorda, with its well-equipped diving center. East of Havana, Varadero is the largest seaside resort with its 20 km long stretch of sandy beach and numerous large hotels. Further east, Cayo Guillermo is also a sublime and well-preserved beach destination. For example, Playa Pilar is one of the best beaches in all of Cuba. A few kilometers from Trinidad, Playa Ancon is another corner of paradise where you can enjoy the sun, fine sand and crystal clear water.
From a historical perspective, all over the island you will discover testimonies of Cuba’s tumultuous past. You will be able to see numerous murals in the glory of Che or the revolution, and buildings sometimes still riddled with bullet holes. A trip to Cuba is often much more than a simple change of geographical location, it is also almost a change of times, because sometimes you have the feeling of having stepped back in time.
Finally, Cuba also has magnificent natural landscapes, such as the Vinales valley, with its tobacco plantations. Other Cuban natural wonders include the splendid El Nicho waterfall, or the canyon of the Yumuri River.
You will find all these wonderful places on my map of Cuba. The interactive version of the map is on the page Where to go in Cuba.
