It contains a small naval museum with displays on piracy and the history of the area.  We will then be visiting Cementerio de Santa Ifigenia cemetery to observe some of the most beautiful burial crypts in Cuba.  We will learn about Jose Marti, a Cuban National Hero, and witness the changing of the guard at his tomb.  We will then experience the Diego Velazquez House and Museum, this structure is the oldest still standing example of colonial style architecture in Cuba today.  We will have a light lunch at a local Palador.

Cienfuegos
Cuba Cruise to Cienfuegos
Cuba Cruise to Cienfuegos

Cuba's so-called Perla del Sur (Pearl of the South) has long seduced travelers from around the island with its elegance, enlightened French spirit and feisty Caribbean panache. If Cuba has a Paris, this is most definitely it. Arranged around the country's most spectacular natural bay, Cienfuegos is a nautical city with an enviable waterside setting. Founded in 1819, it's one of Cuba's newest settlements, but also one of its most architecturally interesting, a factor that earned it a Unesco World Heritage Site listing in 2005. Geographically, the city is split into two distinct parts: the colonnaded central zone with its elegant Paseo del Prado (commonly shortened to Prado) and Parque Martí; and Punta Gorda, a thin knife of land slicing into the bay with a clutch of eclectic early 20th-century palaces, including some of Cuba's prettiest buildings.

In addition to butterflies and bird life such as the endemic bee hummingbird and yellow-headed warbler, Guanahacabibes is home to a large profusion of orchids and epiphytes with a total of 16 species, some indigenous and some recently discovered. At a Meteorological Center, learn about forecasting weather patterns, storms and hurricanes that have left their mark in Cuba, along with how historic storms have impacted ordinary Cubans. Participate in an expert discussion at the “Honey House” on beekeeping and honey production.
