When Christopher Columbus arrived on Cuba’s shores in 1492, he nicknamed it "the Pearl of the Antilles." He was amazed by the beauty of the island’s sandy beaches, its forests thick with palm trees, and its fragrant tropical flowers. Cuba the land highlights the natural beauty of this country with breathtaking photographs and fascinating information.
