As the Caribbean’s largest and least commercialized island, Cuba is a very unique and special place full of culture and history. As part of the West Indies, Cuba is situated within the Antilles Archipelago. Havana, its capital, is located 170km from Florida's Key West in the USA, and Pinar del Río Province located 210km from Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Other nearby locations consist of Bahamas, Jamaica, and Haiti. Comprised of a group of islands, Cuba’s main island is the 15th largest island in the world, measuring 104,945 sq km, 1250km long and 191km wide at its widest point. Cuba also lays claim to the 220 sq km Isla de la Juventud and a further 4200-odd coral cays and islets, most of which are low lying and uninhabited.

Although the greater part of Cuba consists of fertile flatland, 25% of the country consists of three large mountains: La Sierra de los Organos, located in the west; La Sierra del Escambray, located in central Cuba; and La Sierra Maestra, located in the east.
With no great differences in seasonal temperature, Cuba’s pleasant subtropical climate is among the finest in the Caribbean. Compared to its neighboring islands, Cuba’s humidity is relatively low. The wet summer season runs between May and October, reaching average temperatures of 26 degrees Celsius, while the drier winter season lasts from November through April, offering average temperatures of 22 degrees Celsius.

Cuba is divided into 14 provinces: Pinar del Rio, Ciudad Habana (Capital), Provincia Habana, Matanzas, VillaClara, Cienfuegos, Sancti Spiritus, Ciego de Avila, Camaguey, Las Tunas, Granma, Holguin, Santiago de Cuba (second in importance) and Guantanamo. With a total population reaching 11 million, Cuban mixture of backgrounds incorporate 60% of Spanish descent, 22% mulatto, 11% of African descent and 1% Chinese. Although predominantly Catholic (47%), other religions are present in Cuban culture such as Protestant (4%) and Afro-American Spiritism (2%).

Cuba’s economy is based primarily in the sugar cane, tobacco and agricultural industries; and in recent years, booming international tourism. Major tourist locations include, in no particular order, Soroa, Valle de Viñales, Ciudad de la Habana, Playas del Este, Varadero, Villa Clara, Cienfuegos, Trinidad, Cayo Largo, Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo, Baracoa and Santiago de Cuba. Cuba’s government has been a Communist republic, since 1959, when Fidel Castro took over as Head of State after defeating former president, Fulgencio Batista, by means of an armed revolution.

We hope you will have the opportunity to learn more about Cuba’s culture, heritage and overall majestic beauty on your next trip to Cuba.
