A PHOTOGRAPHERS PARADISE
Picturesque Cars And Beautiful Colonial Architecture
For those who enjoy architecture, Cuba offers a unique opportunity to discover a blast from the past. Havana is an architecturally diverse city and safe to say, a photographer’s paradise. Its buildings clearly mirror its rich past and somehow tell an interesting story, always worth hearing it. Have your camera ready as you are exploring because picturesque cars from the 1950’s can still be found on the road today as you are strolling by and admiring the beautiful colonial architecture on just about every corner.
As well as the awe inspiring architects, Cuba is a country with a privileged coastline of 3,570 miles (5,746 km). The paradisiacal beaches washed by the Caribbean Sea in the South and the Atlantic Ocean, and its huge coral reef in the North, make Cuba a paradise that is considered among the 25 most popular and important beach destinations in the world.
Cuba has the most important natural habitats in the Caribbean because of its biodiversity, number of endemic species, and a culture of conservation. Cuba shelters 4% of the world’s terrestrial species, including 6,700 different plants, 14,000 invertebrate and 650 vertebrate’s species. Cuba is also known for its rare varieties of orchids scattered across its lush tropical forests, as well as for its prehistoric cactus in the arid southeast, estuaries bordered by mangroves, and one of the most extensive coral reef systems.
Throughout history the Cuban rum has been recognized worldwide for its superb quality. The long tradition of natural aging in oak casks, sugar cane of prime quality, and the Caribbean climate greatly contribute to the unique flavor of the popular Cuban rum. This unique combination results in a rum with an intense and unique flavor.
Cuba is located very close to the Tropic of Cancer which favors an average temperature of 77 °F (25 °C) and 79% relative humidity. Rainfall mainly benefits the western region, where the greatest tobacco plantations are located. In addition, the rich and fertile soil greatly contributes to the success of the Cuban cigar.
