Camagüey is the easternmost, largest and flattest province in the center of the Cuban island. It counts on limited mountains and is flanked by the two biggest archipelagos in the country: Sabana-Camagüey to the north, and Jardines de la Reina to the south. Both of them still keep virgin areas where you can find peace. The weather doesn’t change excessively throughout the year, the average annual temperature is 24.7 oC

Historically, it has always been a city that went against the tide of the rest of its neighboring cities in politics and economics matters. The fact comes from the colonial times when inhabitants from Camagüey gave preference to cattle over sugar industry, with the intention of getting rid of a system that only generated misery. Nowadays, cattle keeps being the basis of its economy.

Most tourists arrive to the international airport Ignacio Agramonte, or by road if they come from other areas of the country. The main touristic attraction of the province of Camagüey is, with no doubt, Playa Santa Lucía Beach in Cayo Sabinal. The color of its waters and the fine sand form an irresistible tropical attraction. The hotels of the area add some incentives to the beauty of the beach by offering several activities to enjoy your holidays.

But Camagüey is not only a beach. The most important city of the area, that shares its name with the province, gives us the chance of discovering the Cuban history through its small and labyrinthine streets, which many times take us to beautiful hidden corners. It is also a place Catholic-architecture lovers enjoy visiting because of its large buildings.

Other interesting places you can’t miss in your journey to Camagüey are: Florida and its traditions, Sierra del Chorrilla Mountains and its trails, the history of the first Cuban Constitution in Guáimaro, or the industry of Nuevitas.
