Hotels in Cienfuegos.
Cienfuegos is a province with its own identity, marked mainly by the significant influence of African and French cultures.
The city of Cienfuegos, which is called the "Pearl of the South", was founded around the bay in 1819 by French settlers in excellent geographical conditions.
The southern coast of the province is famous for its beautiful coral walls and long underwater caves, which are ideal for underwater diving, both professionals and beginners.
The incomparable natural landscape of the park Topes de Collantes refers it to one of the most impressive places in the geography of Cuba. Topes de Collantes also includes El Nicho, a beautiful system of waterfalls.
The province of Cienfuegos includes the two most visited beaches of the southern coast of Cuba, Playa Rancho Luna and Playa del Inglés.
There are a lot of interesting sights in the guidebooks of Cienfuegos, among which is the José Martí Park in the eastern part of the city. The park is the focus of the urban architecture of Cienfuegos. Here is the Arc de Triumph, a beautiful Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, built in 1870, the Government Palace with huge columns and marble floors, and in the western part, the House of Culture.
The Thomas Terry Theater on the north side of the park is a beautiful two-story building with five arched entrances. Over the central windows of the theater are three mosaics with images of Graces. In addition, inside and outside the building is richly decorated with stucco molding. The building was named after the governor of Cienfuegos, a wealthy industrialist.
The botanical gardens of Cienfuegos are perhaps the most famous gardens in Cuba. There are more than 2000 tropical and subtropical plant species.
Cienfuegos is considered a Cuban pearl of the architecture of the XIX century. It stands out with perfect street layout and the elegance of buildings in the historic center of the city.
The sandy beach of Rancho Luna is located 20 km east of Cienfuegos. These wonderful places are suitable for diving. There are several diving centers, such as Faro Luba and Whale Shark, which offer a wide range of services.
In the shallows, beautiful coral reefs are formed, forming the low and medium reefs of the Barreras Bay and Las Playitas. A little further from the shore, there is a steep underwater descent with very beautiful sea sponges and corals.
