City of Bridges

Though located near a popular tourist resort, Matanzas remains a relatively small town with a strong cultural heritage. Many biking enthusiasts choose to take a trip to Matanzas from Havana, taking side roads to discover friendly little settlements and soak up the spirit of everyday life in Cuba. Tour Matanzas to see the area's three rivers and cross 17 bridges, linking various neighborhoods and giving the city's its second nickname, "Venice of Cuba." The birthplace of rumba and danzon dance traditions, Matanzas serves as one of Cuba's cultural hubs, housing some of the country's top theaters. With our international travel planner, Cuba vacations can be built around trips to Matanzas and other destinations in Cuba.
