Dear Colleagues,

This event will be held in Cienfuegos city, a province in the middle west of our country. The Urban Historic Centre of Cienfuegos was declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, where you will enjoy the hospitality, architecture and history of the place; as well as the kindness of our climate and the natural scenery with its beautiful harbor, one of the longest harbor in Cuba, that decorate Cienfuegos.


Cienfuegos have many attractive places, such as the Jagua Castle which it is located at the entrance of the Cienfuegos Bay. That place was building during the colonial period with the purpouse to avoid the pirates access to the city and guard the entrance of the bay. Beautiful and elegant hotels may be found throughout the city, as well as on its nearby coasts and attractive tropical beaches, such as “Rancho Luna” and the impressive “Hotel Pasacaballos” complex.


We are sure that the inhabitants of that beautiful village, founded by French inmigrants from Louisiana and Haiti, will give you a calid welcome, with the hospitality they are characterized.


We are inviting you to visit Cienfuegos,


Sincerely yours,
