Situated in a beautiful bay in the heart of Cuba’s fertile agricultural region on the southern coast, Cienfuegos will quietly charm you with its French spirit, tranquil seaside setting, and neoclassical architecture. Known as La Perla del Sur (the Pearl of the South), Cienfuegos was originally founded by French settlers, and its city center is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Rich in educationally engaging diversions, its historic center features well-preserved 19th-century structures, gorgeous plazas, and a layout inspired by the Spanish Enlightenment. Discover the ornate and eclectic Palacio de Valle, and take in stunning views as you explore Punta Gorda, the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset. Step back in time at Teatro Terry with a performance by local artists, or discover nearby Trinidad, a remarkably well-preserved colonial town that is also recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Trinidad is anchored by its impressive Plaza Mayor, an open-air museum of Spanish colonial architecture.

Santiago de Cuba

A tropical and energetic cultural epicenter, Santiago de Cuba is the country’s second largest city and has played an instrumental role in the evolution of Cuban music, literature, and architecture. Wedged between the looming Sierra Maestra mountain range and the aquamarine Caribbean Sea, the city offers an abundance of rich heritage and cultural diversions—all with a dramatic backdrop. Discover the city’s fascinating history at Castillo de San Pedro de la Roca and the Cementerio Santa Ifigenia. Countless musicians have emerged from Santiago de Cuba, including Miguel Matamoros (of Trío Matamoros) and Sindo Garay. In fact, many say the heart of this thriving city is its music scene.
