Cuba total armed strength in 2002 was estimated at 46,000 on active duty and 39,000 reserves as you can see in Cuba map. The army had approximately 35,000 personnel. The navy had 3,000 personnel including 550 in the Naval Infantry. The air force had around 8,000 personnel and 130 combat aircraft of questionable capability. Paramilitary forces included 20,000 state security troops, 6,500 border guards, 50,000 civil defense forces, the 70,000-member youth labor army, and the million-member territorial militia. Cuba key military ally and supporter for decades, Russia cut off nearly all military assistance by 1993. Cuba 1998 defense budget was estimated at $750 million, or about 5.4% of GDP. The US maintains a naval base at Guantánamo Bay in southeastern Cuba, under a 1934 leasing treaty. The US government considers the base to be of some strategic and training significance in the Caribbean and has refused to give it up, despite demands by the Castro regime that it do so. About 2,000 military personnel are stationed at Guantánamo.

Cuba people, culture, and customs draw from diverse sources, such as the aboriginal Taíno and Ciboney peoples, the period of Spanish colonialism, the introduction of African slaves and its proximity to the United States. The name Cuba comes from the Taíno language. The exact meaning of the name is unclear but it may be translated either as where fertile land is abundant (cubao), or great place (coabana) as its shown in Cuba map. Authors who believe that Christopher Columbus was Portuguese state that Cuba was named by Columbus for the ancient town of Cuba in the district of Beja in Portugal.

Cuba is a long and narrow island, with a northern coastline of 3209km and a southern coastline of 2537 km as its mentioned in Cuba map. This makes a total of 6073 km including 327 km around the Island of Pinos as its mentioned in Cuba map. More than 1000 marine fish species, many of economic value, have been reported in these coastal waters. Coastal fishing is practised mainly in conventional fashion using artisanal craft and gear. The total estimated number of mechanized fishing boats is 2000. The annual catch from the coastal waters is reported to be 60000t deriving mainly from the mechanized boats and country craft. The 28 trawlers, owned by the government, operate mainly on the high seas, catching about 10000t of fish. A large portion of the marine catch, including tuna, lobster and croaker, is exported.

The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) reports that in 2002 Cuba gross domestic product (GDP) was estimated at $25.9 billion. The per capita GDP was estimated at $2,300. The annual growth rate of GDP was estimated at 0%. The average inflation rate in 2002 was 7.1% as you can see in Cuba on map. The CIA defines GDP as the value of all final goods and services produced within a nation in a given year and computed on the basis of purchasing power parity (PPP) rather than value as measured on the basis of the rate of exchange. It was estimated that agriculture accounted for 8% of GDP, industry 35%, and services 58%. Foreign aid receipts amounted to about $5 per capita.

Cuba has no coal, and its hydroelectric potential is slight. Bagasse (sugarcane waste) has traditionally supplied most of the sugar industry fuel. In 2001, Cuba total installed capacity was 4,486,000 kW; total production in 2000 was 14,100 million kWh, of which 94.6% came from fossil fuels, less than 1% from hydropower as its shown in Cuba on map, and the remainder from other sources. In the same year, consumption of electricity totaled 13.8 billion kWh. A 1,650-MW nuclear plant, built with Soviet assistance in Cienfuegos, was to have been operational by 1993, supplying 15% of Cuba annual electrical output. On 6 September 1992, however, President Fidel Castro announced that work on the plant had been indefinitely stopped, since Russia was demanding hard-currency payment.

The collectivo is one of the typical transport methods in the Caribbean, Central America and some parts of South America, and in Cuba as well it is a very convenient way of getting around as its mentioned in Cuba on map. These will usually be cars that will run between two towns, and will then take you to a particular place such as a hotel or hostel in your destination. Cuba is probably the only country in the world where hitchhiking is a part of the public transport network, and here there are certain vehicles that have to provide a ride for anyone who is looking for a journey. There are certain spots along the main transport routes known as 'Amarillo Points' where the vehicles will stop, and an official there will take the details of where you need to get to, and you then wait to be called forward. Cycling is another popular way of getting around the island, but there are only a small number of operators in the major cities that actually rent bicycles, so you may have to source one upon arrival.

This detailed map is showing Cuba, the largest Caribbean island is situated in the western West Indies, south of Florida and The Bahamas, north of the Caribbean Sea with Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. Cuba shares maritime borders with The Bahamas, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, and the United States. Cuba occupies an area of about 110,000 km², compared it is about the size of Bulgaria, or slightly smaller than the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. The island nation has a population of 11.2 million (official estimate 2010); capital is Havana (Habana); official language is Spanish. Depicted on the map are provincial boundaries, the national capital Havana, provincial capitals, major cities, main roads, railroads and major airports.

Cuba has established or reestablished trade relations with many countries in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and Europe as you can see in the Detailed map of Cuba. The sudden rupture of trade with the former Soviet Union and the Eastern bloc nations in 1989 after 30 years of interrelationship caused severe trauma to the Cuban economy. However, there remains a clear political will on the part of the former Soviet republics to maintain economic relations with Cuba with a certain degree of preference. Nevertheless, Cuba has diversified its trading partners in recent years. Almost half of Cuba commodity export market (53%) is taken up by sugar and honey, representing 5.7% of the world export sales in these commodities. Nickel is the second most lucrative exported commodity (23%), followed by fish (6.8%). Other exports include tobacco (5.6%) and medicinal and pharmaceutical products (2.8%). Primary imports include petroleum, food, machinery, and chemicals.

Within the past few years decades, Cuban housing has begun to catch up to population demand. Nearly 1.3 million housing units were built between 1959 and 1993. In the 1980s, over half of all housing units were detached houses. The remainder were apartments, palm huts called hohios, and cuarterias, housing units in buildings composed of a number of detached rooms where occupants share some or all facilities. More than half of all dwellings were concrete and brick, about one-third were solid wood, and a smaller number were constructed with palm planks. Water was piped indoors to roughly half of all homes and outside to one-fifth; about half had private bath facilities. Housing conditions have generally improved over the past few years. By 1998, about 87% of urban dwellings were graded as Good or Fair, as were 68% of rural dwellings as its mentioned in the Detailed map of Cuba.

If you are planning to arrive in the capital of Havana, then we recommend that you only check out the Northern part of Cuba. Due to the size of the island, you would have to rush to see all the interesting places. Among the best things to do in Havana is a pink vintage cabriolet ride. At each corner in Havana Vieja, you will get a driver/guide who will take you to Havana to show you the most interesting places. They will take you around Havana and show you the most interesting places. Another popular destination for visitors on Cuba is the famous Bay of Pigs as you can see in the Map of Northern Cuba. History reminds us of the unsuccessful operation of Cuban exiles who attacked Cuba in 1961. The United States considered another try to assassinate Fidel, but eventually, the idea of landing Cuban emigrants in Bay of Pigs won and eventually it would become the whole-Cuban uprising against the Castro regime.

Two extensive archipelagos of low coral islands run almost the entire length of Cuba northern coast between Havana and Holguín, facing the Florida keys and the Bahamas-and yielding little to either for gorgeous beaches as its shown in the Map of Northern Cuba. Jibacoa suits a short stay at the end of a holiday.While it is just 60km from Havana and handy for the international airport, local options beyond the few hotels are limited. The beach is lovely, backed by trees and sheltered by coral reefs that are accessible for snorkellers and divers. Along the Archipelago de Sabana, the islands known as the Northern Cays have only recently been developed for visitors, generally in a more considered way and a smaller scale. A narrow causeway close to the attractive town of Remedios runs out to Cayo Las Brujas, Cayo Ensenachos, and Cayo Santa Maria. Villa Las Brujas is the smallest and most likeable of the 6 hotels on the islands, much further out on Cayo Santa Maria there is a behemoth offering a staggering 925 rooms.

At the beginning of the 19th century, when the importance of the city of Trinidad began to fade, the main attention was transferred to Cienfuegos as its mentioned in the Map of Northern Cuba. The dominant feature was the port, which was of great importance for its strategic position in its time. The city was founded by French settlers, so most of the streets have French names. The streets are wide, the city is full of promenades, parks and beautiful monuments in neoclassical style. That is why the whole historical centre is listed on UNESCO. Other best places what to do and visit in Cuba include Trinidad. It is one of the most beautiful towns with a well-preserved colonial architecture in Cuba. It is no wonder, therefore, that it is a Unesco World Heritage Site. The city was founded in 1514 by the Spanish colonizers and quickly became rich. Thanks to the extensive sugar cane plantations located around the city, Trinidad became the most important sugar city in Cuba.

The largest city Santiago de Cuba is the main administrative center. Santiago de Cuba province has been the site of many battles, both during the war for independence and the 1959 Cuban Revolution, where much of the guerrilla fighting took place in the mountainous province. Bayamo as you can see in the Map of Southern Cuba is the little capital of Granma, a nice city which preserve mostly intact the traditions of the Cuban people, but not its rich Colonial architecture, which perished in a fire which made it famous.

Guantánamo is the easternmost province of Cuba. Its capital is also called Guantánamo. Other towns include Baracoa as its shown in the Map of Southern Cuba. The province surrounds the important U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay. Guantánamo architecture and culture is unlike the rest of Cuba. The province is only 80 km away from Haiti its closest point, across the Windward Passage and close enough to see lights on Haiti on a clear night. Granma is one of the provinces of Cuba. Its capital is Bayamo. Other towns include Manzanillo (a port on the Gulf of Guacanayabo) and Pilón. The province was named after the yacht Granma, used by Che Guevara and Fidel Castro to land in Cuba with 82 guerrillas in 1956; until 1976 it was part of the larger "Oriente Province".

Las Tunas is one of the provinces of Cuba. Major towns include Puerto Padre and Amancio, as well as the capital, Victoria de Las Tunas (sometimes known as Las Tunas, or even just Tuna) as its mentioned in the Map of Southern Cuba. The Las Tunas province was established in 1976, when it was split from the 'Oriente Province. The southern coast, which opens onto the Gulf of Guacanayabo, is marshy and characterised by mangroves. This wet area is used to grow sugarcane, as the wet climate is well suited for the crop. Mayarí is a municipality and town in the Holguín Province of Cuba. The origins of the city date back to 1757 in Spanish Cuba, when the first farms were established here by immigrant colonists. On 19 January 1879 the city became the seat of Mayarí Municipality.
