Your vacations in Cuba

The Republic of Cuba is an island country in the Caribbean.

Cuba is located in the northern Caribbean, at the confluence of the Caribbean Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Atlantic Ocean. Cuba is south of the eastern United States and the Bahamas, west of the Turks and Caicos Islands and Haiti, east of Mexico, and north of the Cayman Islands and Jamaica.

The country consists of the island of Cuba proper, the Isla de la Juventud, and several archipelagos.

Havana is Cuba’s largest city and the country's capital. Santiago de Cuba is the second largest city.

Cuba is home to over 11 million people and is the most populous insular nation in the Caribbean.

Its people, culture and customs draw from diverse sources; these include the aboriginal Taíno and Ciboney peoples, the period of Spanish colonialism, the introduction of African slaves, and its proximity to the United States.

Spanish English is widely spoken.

Shopping

Rum is always a safe bet. Cigars are also a very good buy. However, beware of fraud. Local crafts are also available and these include beautiful wood carvings, handicrafts made of metal, as well as leather goods and ceramics.

Useful information
