Known as the “Pearl of the South”, Cienfuegos is one of the largest holiday destinations in Cuba where visitors can practice a variety of nautical sports, climb the stunning mountains of the Sierra del Escambray or admire the legacy of Spanish and French settlers through its architecture and traditions.

Located next to one of the best bays in the world, this urban centre is considered an architectural jewel having great French influence. A city of remarkable patrimonial constructions, it exhibits a very well preserved historical area, in which constructions of diverse styles harmoniously stand out making it a necessary stop of visitors taking part in cultural holidays in Cuba.

The international marina on the other hand makes room for those adventurous travellers seeking to live the city from the sea. Cienfuegos dolphin aquarium completes the nautical picture where you can swim with dolphins or simply pay for a dolphin kiss snapshot.
