much more than the capital of Cuba
The province of Havana is the smallest of the provinces of Cuba, but the one with the largest population. Due to the conditions of the province, city tourism predominates, but this does not mean that there are no beautiful beaches and natural sites of interest.
From Havana you can reach - in less than 3 hours - other tourist attractions such as Viñales (Pinar del Rio), Abra del Canasí (Mayabeque), Varadero (Matanzas), Cienfuegos or Trinidad, which allows you to make interesting single day field trips from the capital.

Havana is the center of the country's life, a multicultural, plural and open city to any visitor who wishes to explore it with an adventurous eye, a city full of sounds and colors whose main attractions are the beauty of its historic center, its exceptional architecture , the revolutionary iconography and its wide cultural offer.
Old Havana has been declared a Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO and is worth a walk on its restored streets and squares. Also essential are tours around Centro Habana, Vedado and Miramar, as well as across the bay to the Morro-Cabaña Military Historical Park, to enjoy a sunset with the most spectacular views of the city.
The city exhibits a wide variety of architectural styles and has attractive squares, museums (such as the Museo de la Revolución, Cuban Art and Museo del Ron ...), art galleries and academies of national and international importance. Some of the most representative constructions of this province are Capitolio de La Habana, the Castillo de los Tres Reyes del Morro and the Catedral de La Habana.
For admirers of tropical nature, there is the Almendares Metropolitan Park, on the banks of the river of the same name. Located in the west of the city in the Bosque de la Habana area, this park is considered one of the most beautiful places in the capital due to its dense tropical vegetation.
The province is not known for its beaches, but the Eastern Beaches have nothing to envy to other of the most visited due to its crystal clear waters and fine sands; 30 minutes from the city center, they are a little paradise, both for locals and for foreigners.
