Sancti Spiritus

Central America is the central geographic region of the Americas. It is variably defined either as being a region of the Americas in its own right or as the southern portion of North America. Physiographically, Central America is a tropical isthmus that connects North and South America. It includes 7 countries and many small offshore islands. Overall, the land is fertile and rugged, and dominated through its heart by a string of volcanic mountain ranges with a few active volcanos.
Sancti Spiritus is a city in the province of Sancti Spiritus, central Cuba and is the provincial capital. The city was founded by Diego Velazquez de Cuellar. Sancti Spiritus is one of the provinces of Cuba. Its capital is the identically named Sancti Spiritus. The southeast has numerous mangroves and swamps. The largest man made reservoir in Cuba, the Embalse Zaza, is in Sancti Spiritus province.

Like some of its sister municipalities and towns, Sancti Spiritus is blessed with beautiful surroundings and a unique natural setting. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people all combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in Central America.
