  • Principal Theater is located in Camaguey
  • Camagüey is the birthplace of some of the most relevant personalities of Cuban Culture: Nicolás Guillén, Cuba's Laureate Poet; writer and poetess Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda; Ballet of Camagüey, the second company of Cuba, and the Folkloric Dance Group; famous painters Fidelio Ponce de León and Flora Fong are only some of the examples worth mentioning. Popular festivities like the San Juan Camagüeyano, a traditional festival that started in the 18th century, have transcended until our days.

    Camagüey City, the capital of the province, treasures one of the most important historical centers in the country, recently declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO; and is one of the Cuban cities that better preserve the Hispano-Arabic features regarding urbanism and architecture. Its several churches have significant examples of the art and religious-funeral customs of colonial times.

    Santa Lucía Beach, located in the northern coast of the easterncentral part of Cuba, is the main tourist destination in Camagüey province. It has some 21km of warm transparent water, fine white sand and a well preserved environment that serves as habitat to important pink flamingos' colonies. It faces the Old Channel of Bahamas, surrounded to the east by Las Tunas province; to the west by the Jardines del Rey archipelago and to the south by the flat lands of Camagüey. The coral formations, located just 2km off the coast, display a surprising biodiversity that invite to contemplate the undersea beauties. There are 35 diving points at Santa Lucía Beach that allow divers meeting with the remains of sunken ships from the 19th and 20th centuries as well as enjoying a curious show in which experienced guides feed with their bare hands friendly sharks near the Nuevitas Bay.

      “Impressive neoclassical building! ”
      This impressive building dates from 1850, but it was rebuilt in 1926 after a devastating fire and it is the home of the Camagüey Ballet. Unfortunately, the building was closed, yet last year (2013) we were lucky to briefly attend a very nice performance by young children and the audience was made up mostly of their parents. Fernando Alonso (1914-2013),... More

      “If they are having a show go, I don't care what it is, GO ”
      We went to the theatre to see a ballet. The play was in Spanish and our Spanish is very limited. We didn't get much of the words but the dancing was spectacular. We were so impressed that we went back to the same ballet, three nights in a row. World class ballet with full company of 40+ dancers, incredible costumes... More

      “Ballet at it's finest. ”
      Teatro Principal is old, decaying and absolutely fantastic. It reeks of history and is home to one of the finest ballet companies in the world.
