Heritage, sun and beach, all that and more in Camagüey
Camagüey is among the regions of Cuba with the greatest historical and architectural richness. Its capital city has the air of a queen because of its rancid lineage, because of the generosity of its women, because of the courtesy of its inhabitants, because of the charm that surrounds its narrow streets, a living expression of the times of the colony, and for its symbol: red mud pot tins
The natives say that the one who drinks tinajón water stays or repeats his trip.
It constitutes a tourist destination par excellence to get in touch with lavish churches, impressive cobblestone squares for its layout, or for the sculptural works that they shelter.

Its main tourist pole, Santa Lucía beach, located 109 kilometers from Camagüey and 63 kilometers from Nuevitas, has 20 kilometers of beach from Punta de Ganado to La Boca, where the fine sand invites you to sunbathe and its turquoise blue waters to immerse themselves in them.
Its wide coral reef is of great interest and is located about two kilometers from the shore, for those who practice diving and snorkeling.
The Cangilones of the Máximo River are another interesting place to visit in Camagüey and to make adventure and nature tourism.
