The Cuban archipelago, which has a privileged geographical location in the Caribbean region, offers a perfect combination of urban tourism and hundreds of kilometers of excellent beaches.
That way, the calm, crystal-clear waters surrounding the island, in addition to breathtakingly beautiful sea bottoms where diving enthusiasts can have a great time, complement urban tourism in Cuba.
Considered Cuba's largest city and the main tourist destination in the country, Havana has a population of two million and holds several world-renowned hotels.
A large hotel infrastructure, including more than 10,000 rooms, and a wide range of services back the development of Havana's tourist sector, where vacationers can take part in business trips, cultural tourism, incentives and meetings.
The former village of San Cristóbal de La Habana, also known as the Fortress City of the West Indies or the Key to the New World, offers many tourist options, ranging from traditions and culture to beaches and nautical sports.
Dozens of museums, nightclubs, world-renowned restaurants and elements of Spanish-colonial architecture turned the Cuban capital into the country's major tourist destination for foreign vacationers.
In addition, the Cuban capital also offers excellent beaches as part of the so-called Circuito Azul (Blue Circuit), which runs along 15 kilometers on the north coast and where Santa María del Mar stands out as one of the most beautiful beaches in the region.
Other beaches of the circuit are Bacuranao, El Mégano, Boca Ciega and Guanabo, all of which complement the tourist programs enjoyed by thousands of foreign vacationers who visit the Cuban capital every year.
Another beach, Jibacoa, offers calm water flanked by hills that are up to 100 meters high and run parallel to the coast, giving bathers a pleasant feeling of privacy.
In addition to sun and beach options and excellent facilities, foreign tourists can enjoy a wide range of nautical sports and recreational activities, thanks to a hotel infrastructure that can meet the demands from international tourism.
The sand area offshore runs to the edge of the insular platform and is inhabited by corals and rich underwater fauna that turn the region into an ideal place for diving.
Generally, the abovementioned beaches also have nightclubs, restaurants, bars and many services for foreign vacationers to learn about every detail of the capital of all Cubans.
The Blue Circuit also holds the Marina Puertosol Tarará, which provides round-the-clock services to boats, restaurants, excursions and accommodation.
One of the most demanded establishments in the Blue Circuit is the Tropicoco Hotel, which is a few meters from the beach and is surrounded by an attractive Caribbean environment characterized by beautiful outdoors and indoors gardens.
That way, tourist programs in Havana are combined with excursions to the eastern Havana beaches of the Blue Circuit.
