Cuba is a haven to its residents. The proper name of Cuba is Republic of Cuba with Havana as its capital; a large Caribbean island nation under communist rule is the largest of all islands in the Caribbean. The country also includes more than 4,000 other much smaller islands and cays. On October 27, 1492 Christopher Columbus sighted Cuba and by 1514, Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar had conquered the island for the Spanish crest. The country was given its independence in 1902.
Known for its beauty, extravagant tourist’s attractions, and quality cigars, the Caribbean island of Cuba, a totalitarian communist state, is a multiracial society with a population of mainly Spanish and African origin. The nation is officially known as the Republic of Cuba; it consists of the Island of Cuba, the Isle of Youth and some adjacent small islands. Cuba lies just ninety miles south of Key West, Florida; therefore its climate is subtropical or temperate. The average minimum temperature is 70°f, the average maximum 81°f (Fast). The trade winds and sea breezes make coastal areas more habitable than temperature would allow.
