Contrasting with the sister-province of Ciudad de La Habana, tourism in this region is characterized by a predominance of the natural environment over urban attractions.
That space, sought by a part of the tourists, eager to have a peaceful and comforting recreation, is in the province of La Habana.
Several hotel facilities have been designed to welcome the tourist and meet all the needs for natural healthful enjoyment. The hotel Las Yagrumas, next to the Ariguanabo river, the camping bases in Santa Cruz, the beach of Jibacoa, where the hotel Breezes Jibacoa and the Villa Trópico operate.
For the purposes of tourist animation, it has been created in the zone of El Salado beach a center, named Blue Reef, where courses on aquatic tourism are offered. There, the visitor can receive the necessary information for night-time diving and nautical motor sports. Another similar offer is that of the diving center "El Abra", favored by the presence of coral reefs.
The sight of the tourist can not be indifferent before the presence of numerous beaches where oil extraction takes place in benefit of the country's economy.
The visitor who prefers fishing is offered, in a center located in the shore of Batabanó, the possibility to fish valuable crustaceans like shrimp and lobster, which will become later savory dishes in the table of the tourist.
This province hosts the facilities of the factory producing the worldwide prestigious Havana Club Rum.
