Some vital statistics
The 110,860 km2 Cuban archipelago is made up of over 4,000 cays and islets situated around Cuba, the 1,500-km wide main island located between Cabo de San Antonio to the west and Punta de Quemados to the east. <--UP-->
Cuba has a moderate subtropical climate. Although with the rains, it can be said to have two seasons, there are very few climate variations. The dry season, which is referred to as winter, runs from November to April while the rainy season, which has all the characteristics of a Cuban summer, begins in May and ends in October. <--UP-->
Flora and fauna
Cuban flora, which is highly endemic and consists of 6,370 types of higher plants, accounts for 4% of the planet’s vegetation. Its fauna includes 13,000 species none of which are harmful to humans. There are 900 species of fish, four thousand molluscs and 400 birds, 52 of which are exclusive to the island. <--UP-->

National flower
The mariposa: a type of endemic intense white, mildly scented jasmine that grows wild in the Cuban countryside.
National bird
The tocororo: an indigenous species with blue, white and red plumage – the colours of the Cuban flag. <--UP-->

National tree
The royal palm –Roystonea regia-: a plant that grows abundantly along Cuba’s countryside. It can reach a height of 30 meters and, with its resistance to the strong gales, is symbolic of the rigid Cuban nature. <--UP-->
More than two-thirds of Cuba is made up of fertile flatlands dotted with mountain ranges that give the landscape its distinctive hills and valleys. The main ranges are the Sierra de los Órganos, in the western part of the country; Sierra del Escambray, in the central region; and Sierra Maestra, to the east which includes Pico Turquino, which at 1,974 metres above sea level, is the highest point in the country. <--UP-->

Historical overview
Christopher Columbus entered Cuba, via Bariay – which is located in present-day Holguín province – in October 1492. Spain conquered the territory in 1511 and ruled until 1898. Great Britain took control of Havana in 1762 and occupied the Cuban capital until 1763. This occupation led to the subsequent dismantling of the trading company Real Compañía and promoted trade, which generated immediate economic spin-offs for the country. Cuba’s history has been marked by an ongoing series of pro-independence struggles from the war of 1868 and the war of 1895 organized by Cuban National Hero José Martí to the more recent movements that culminated with the victory of the revolution led by Fidel Castro, on January 1, 1959. <--UP-->

Traditionally, sugar cane and its related industry have been the mainstay of Cuba’s economy. Extensive amounts of land have also been set aside for the cultivation of tobacco, citrus fruits, coffee, cocoa, henequen and truck crops. The country’s industries produce vast quantities of nickel, refractory chromium, manganese and asphaltite. Fishing is also a major player as are the marked advances made in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Overall, the driving force of the country’s economy is tourism; the industry generates the highest income and has recorded the most dynamic growth. <--UP-->
