Experience Cienfuegos, the Paris of Cuba

The colonial waterfront town of Cienfuegos, known as La Perla del Sur (Pearl of the South), sits pretty on the south-central coast of Cuba. Cienfuegos literally translates to "one hundred fires”, and the town certainly adds a bright light to this fascinating country.

Clean and laid-back, Cienfuegos is a place whose elegant French charm meets its fiery Caribbean spirit to a refreshing and delightful result. In fact, the names of many of the streets in the old town give a nod to the French origins of the Cienfuegos’s first settlers from Bordeaux and Louisiana, and the town retains a certain French sophistication. Enjoy pleasant breezes as you take in the neoclassical, art nouveau and art deco styles the town has to offer. Discover the stunningly ornate Palacio de Valle along the Paseo del Prado and take in the Arco de Triunfo, the only structure of its kind in Cuba, dedicated to the Cuban independence.

But this lovely town is more than just a pretty picture. Enjoy the short boat ride to cross the castle drawbridge and explore Castillo de Jagua, a 17th-century Spanish fortress. Discover the staggering collection of tropical plants among the 97 hectares of the Jardín Botánico de Cienfuegos, an extraordinary botanic garden, or venture a little further to explore the trails, waterfalls and cascading natural pools of Parque el Nicho.
