Cuba has become an increasingly popular destination for an all-inclusive resort vacation. But with such a vibrant culture and with so many great places to see, there is no excuse to spend a week holed up in a luxury hotel.

Many of the best Cuban tourist attractions are found in the capital city of Havana. Havana Vieja (old Havana) alone is packed with sights and delights. Key points of interest include the Malecon, the Plaza de la Revolucion, the Museo Nacional de Belle Artes, the Vedado, the Museo de la Revolucion, the Castillo de la Real Fuerza, and the Capitolio Nacional.

Outside Havana, the best city for tourist excursions is probably the colonial town of Trinidad, in the province of Sancti Spiritus. The old streets and architecture transport visitors to a time far removed from modern Cuba.

Good Cuban tourist attractions for a family vacation include the unique delfinario near Varadero, and the impressive Bellamar caves. Organized trips to these sights are available from most Cuban resorts.
