Cuban icons

Music and dancing

Cubans are a lively people and enjoy rhythmic music and hip-swaying salsa.

Fidel Castro

His name is virtually synonymous with Cuba.

Political signage

It's pasted on walls everywhere. And there are numerous paintings of Che Guevara, keeping his 1959 Revolution exploits alive.

Yank Tanks

This is the nickname for the half-century-old classic American automobiles that are kept shiny and running by their loving owners. You cannot miss them when in Havana.


Cuba is the Caribbean's largest island. It measures 1,200 kilometers (750 miles) in length. There are over 11 million residents.


Cuba attracts more than 2 million visitors annually. Most are Canadians. Tourists from Mexico, Europe and South America also come in large numbers. Few tourists come from the United States because the US government made travel to Cuba illegal for nearly all of its citizens. Many travel officials predict that this restriction will be eliminated or at least significantly eased in the future.
