Located almost in the center of Cuba, you will find the third largest province in the nation, Camaguey. Cuba, already known for its colourful history and culture, there is lots to see and learn while on your vacation.
Make sure that when you go into town alone, or even with a tour guide you do not get lost. Most of the streets in Camaguey are maze like and slightly confusing. The reason behind this was to make sure that pirates would not be able to raid the city.
There are plenty of things to see and do in the city. Visit a few museums and historical landmarks. As for festivities visit during the month of April and May and witness different performances and workshops. In June there is a carnival that runs for week and again with performances and musicians, July and September the same.
During your stay in Camaguey you may notice various clay pots. Not only are they a part of their culture and history, they actually come into use. They use the tinajon, as they are called, to collect water and keep it clean. There sizes range from small enough to keep on a windowsill, to tall enough for a full grown person to stand up in. Either as monuments, or for purpose, you can take one home and come up with your owns uses.
