It is known that the Cu­ban ar­chi­pe­la­go has "the big is­land" as its main com­po­nent, a long and na­rrow is­land whe­re it is pos­si­ble to iden­tify th­ree re­gions: the wes­tern, the cen­tral and the eas­tern, which rounds out that tou­rism uni­ver­se seasoned with the ad­di­tion of the na­tu­ral ma­gic that su­rrounds the First City of Cu­ba, Ba­ra­coa, the Mo­nu­ment City of Ba­ya­mo, and the He­ro City of San­tia­go de Cu­ba, sound ex­pres­sions of lo­cal cul­tu­res that re­main ridd­led by the mis­ce­ge­na­tion ge­ne­ra­ted by mi­gra­tion. The­re­fo­re, it boasts a rich his­tory clo­sely re­la­ted to the fu­tu­re of the in­su­lar Ca­rib­bean, which has tur­ned out to be a true high-flying cul­tu­ral re­ser­voir with a wi­de ran­ge of ex­pres­sions cha­rac­te­ri­zed by its aut­hen­ti­city and roots. We re­cog­ni­ze it from the Tum­ba Fran­ce­sa to the Con­ga Orien­tal, from the bo­le­ro to the son, the chan­güí and ot­her rhythms and beats that ha­ve left in­de­li­ble marks in the uni­ver­sal mu­si­cal re­per­toi­re.

This cul­tu­ral vi­sion allows us to pin­point an ex­tra­or­di­nary po­ten­tial that is al­ready be­co­ming part of the new tou­rism of­fers this part of the world, so re­cog­ni­zed by the va­riety of its mu­sic and dan­ce, has to de­li­ver; but al­so for its car­ni­vals and po­pu­lar fes­ti­vals, its pe­cu­liar cu­li­nary cul­tu­re, the exu­be­rant pre­sen­ce of its scen­ted and tasty fruits, such as the ones that grow in the su­rroun­dings of the El Ca­ney. It allows us to un­ders­tand the ge­ne­sis of light rum and the po­wer­ful pre­sen­ce of cof­fee in their en­vi­ron­ment, which ha­ve been es­sen­tial in re­gio­nal life with broad con­tri­bu­tions of their own, both eco­no­mi­cally and as far as so­cio­cul­tu­ral events are con­cer­ned.

Vi­si­ting beau­ti­ful and har­mo­nious ci­ties in the su­rroun­dings, such as Las Tu­nas, Guan­ta­na­mo and Man­za­ni­llo, as well as ur­ban lands­ca­pes cut out bet­ween the moun­tains and the sea, gi­ve this part of the country its own per­so­na­lity that proudly feels its ro­le and sco­pe as the birth­pla­ce of the Cu­ban na­tio­na­lity. It's a ca­talyst of the dif­fe­rent sta­ges of strug­gle led by the peo­ple for their in­de­pen­den­ce.

In the east, the na­tio­nal his­tory is plea­sed to show su­bli­me sce­na­rios of the peo­ple's strug­gle to achie­ve their fi­nal in­de­pen­den­ce, si­tes such as the Mon­ca­da Ba­rracks, the Mo­rro de San Pe­dro de la Ro­ca Castle, the his­to­ric parks associated with the Cu­ban-Spa­nish War. Cu­ban-Ame­ri­cans; the Pa­tri­mo­nial Ce­me­tery of San­ta Ifi­ge­nia, whe­re a le­gion of the foun­ding fat­hers of the na­tion rest eter­nally; the Man­gos de Ba­ra­guá, whe­re Ge­ne­ral An­to­nio Ma­ceo sta­ged his wellk­nown pro­test; Dos Ríos, whe­re Na­tio­nal He­ro Jose Mar­ti fell in com­bat.

The San­ctuary of the Vir­gen de la Ca­ri­dad del Co­bre and the path from the Bay of Ni­pe link the ci­ties of San­tia­go de Cu­ba and Hol­guín in the north-south orien­ta­tion, es­sen­tial for its geo­grap­hi­cal po­si­tion in a te­rri­to­rial con­text who­se coastli­ne has a set of ex­ce­llent bea­ches and na­tu­ral parks to brag about.

Tee­ming with a sum of highly va­lua­ble cul­tu­ral lands­ca­pes, the Eas­tern Cir­cuit is des­ti­ned to be­co­me both a na­tio­nal and in­ter­na­tio­nal bench­mark in terms of spe­cia­li­zed tou­rism, good enough to plea­se the most de­man­ding and up­da­ted tou­rists; its routes, trails and paths of­fer an un­pa­ra­lle­led va­riety of op­por­tu­ni­ties to know and en­joy the most aut­hen­tic Ca­rib­bean. Co­me and check by your­self, en­joy, from the most pro­found in­ti­macy, the won­der of the end­less lands­ca­pe.
