Much smaller than other Cuban provinces, Cienfuegos or the Pearl of the South, as this World Heritage city is also known, is a place not to be overlooked, if you are travelling to Cuba. Less crowded, it is a very good option to relax and enjoy quiet walks.
The Malecón, a wall that borders the coast in the centre of the city, is a meeting place for Cubans, with the music and joy that characterizes them. The Botanical Garden, with more than 1500 species of plants and holder of the Monument Conservation Award and the category of National Monument of the Republic of Cuba, offers tourists guided tours of the collections of living plants.
Taking a boat trip through the calm waters of the Bay of Jagua will not only allow you to relax but also contemplate the beautiful city from another perspective. The visit to the Castillo de Jagua Fortress, located at the entrance to the bay since the 1740s, to protect the city from the pirates and corsairs that roamed the Caribbean coasts and used to take refuge there, in search of water and food supplies and other provisions, is another of the luxury options in this province.
