The tourist development of Cuba is based primarily on tourism of sun and beach, but the large number and diversity of ecosystems, landscapes and flora and fauna have made a new and dynamic offer possible in recent years, providing tours of great commercial and environmental interest through ecotourism. More than 1600 islands (many of them in virgin condition), 6000 km of coastline, 5325 km2 of mangroves, 3400 km of coral reefs, and an extensive insular platform of 70 000 km2 with more than 525 diving points, providing a healthy way to see the world and experience adventures. Tourism in Cuba is a key sector, which continuously generates foreign exchange providing valuable income to the country. Tourist potential and the recreational sports of Cuba have four basic pillars: Culture, climate, geological structure and island status, all of which makes it an ideal place to escape and get away from it all, while experiencing new adventures. However, although ecotourism in Cuba is still quite recent, figures show that this form of tourism accounted for over 630 000 tourists (30% of the total) in 2002, and over 160 000 of these arrived in ecotourism package tours, according to the Ecotourism Encounter celebrated in the province of Granma in 2003. This study aims to present a brief review of the historical evolution of ecotourism on the Isle of Youth and sports tourism in Cuba, as well as its commercial and environmental repercussions.
