In Las Tunas, Cuba, life goes by at a slower pace and is best enjoyed. It’s a favorite destination for nature, sun and beach tourism, bathing its coasts with the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Guacanayabo. The so called Balcony of the Cuban Western has a nice weather all year long, with temperatures that range from 69.8 to 86 °F, so outdoor activities are among the top tourist attractions in Las Tunas.
