The capital of the island nation and the most populated at over 2.1 million residents, Havana is the 4th most populous area in the Caribbean region. The walled capital was founded by Span in the 16th century. The sinking of an American warship in 1898 signaled the beginning of the Spanish-American war. “Old Havana” became a UNESCO World Heritage site in the 80’s. Havana experienced exponential growth in the 1930’s when the city became a major tourist destination until 1959 when Fidel Castro came into power following the revolution. Visitors to Havana enjoy colorful displays of culture, architecture, music, and the arts.
