Cuba - So Much More Than Cigars and Salsa!

The Republic of Cuba is located in the largest archipelago in the Caribbean region, and it measures the largest island about 1.250 km in length, and are home to approximately 11.3 million people in total. The Cuban poet Nicolas Guillén had this to say about Cuba: "It flows into the Caribbean Sea as a green, sleepy crocodile with eyes of water and rocks."

The fascinating landscape is hilly and with breathtaking beaches, historic towns and rustic villages where the traditional Cuban farmer "Guajiro" rides around on his horse, as if time has stopped. The Cuban population is very unique, and the country exudes  warmth and hospitality, as well as a strong sense of national pride and independence. Especially famous is the Cuban music, which sounds in the streets even late at night, and in which the Cubans clearly express their spontaneity and zest for life.
