While getting ready to spend a holiday in Cuba it is almost impossible not to have certain stereotypes in mind. Cigars, music, American cars, beaches, Castro and the embargo for example. Yet the island is full of wonders not always known to tourists. Several sites are listed as World Heritage by UNESCO, including the Old Town of Havana and Trinidad, which reflect the colonial history of Cuba. The old buildings of the sixteenth century have been renovated; the restored city centres and many museums open their doors. With regards to biodiversity, Cubans do everything to preserve the extreme natural wealth of their island. The UNESCO declared “Biosphere Reserves” exceptional sites for their fauna and flora, among them the Sierra del Rosario in the province of Pinar Del Rio or Baconao Park in the Sierra Maestro, the largest nature reserve on the island. Do not be surprised to see some iguanas and other wild crocodiles during your holiday. The sporty types will be spoilt with choice in Cuba. Diving will allow you to discover the beauty of the Caribbean seabed, and hiking will lead you to the mountains and forests. Although poverty is pervasive, Cubans always offer a warm and exemplary welcome. A holiday in Cuba leaves both sad and happy memories as this enchanting island make an impression with its good atmosphere and the pride of its people.
