Beaches · Historic Walking Areas · Landmarks
The largest island in the Caribbean, Cuba lies just 140 km (90 mi) south of Florida and captivates a growing number of Western visitors with its tropical landscapes and cultural attractions. Sightseeing in Cuba inevitably begins in Havana, a city of photogenic architecture, lively nightlife, and a passion for baseball. The country's smaller colonial towns usually feature central squares, ideal places to meet the locals under wrought-iron street lamps. Savvy visitors escape the cities during their Cuba holidays, devoting plenty of time to the country's charming countryside, where you can get the feel for this diverse land by conversing with friendly tobacco farmers and small-scale fruit producers.
