Camaguey encompasses the central section of Cuba and remains largely agricultural, its economy dependent on small-scale cattle raising and fruit production. The top attraction in Camaguey is the eponymous town, a World Heritage Site boasting a maze-like central district that was designed to confuse pirates and bandits, who frequently attacked this area in the 17th century. Considered one of Cuba's most sophisticated destinations, second only to Havana, this thriving town boasts many hidden squares, colonial churches, and fine galleries. Beyond this regional capital, you can discover pristine coastal scenery and rural areas untouched by mass tourism. Plan your trip to Camaguey and other Cuba destinations using our handy Cuba trip itinerary planning site.
