Learn About Cuba Landscape
Cuba is by far the largest of the Caribbean islands at 110,860 square kilometers. It sits just at the eastern perimeter of the Gulf of Mexico, 150 kilometers south of Key West, Florida, 140 kilometers north of Jamaica, and 210 kilometers east of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It is separated from Hispaniola to the east by the 77-kilometer-wide Windward Passage.
Cuba is actually an archipelago with some 4,000-plus islands and cays dominated by the main island (104,945 square kilometers), which is 1,250 kilometers long—from Cabo de San Antonio in the west to Punta Maisí in the east—and between 31 and 193 kilometers wide.
Most of the territory is formed by a fertile plain. However, three mountain ranges stand out, the Sierra de los organs in the western region, the Sierra del Escambray in the center of the territory and the Sierra Maestra in the eastern part, which includes the Pico Turquino, which is the main height of the country with 1’974 m above sea level. Some mountain ranges of relatively little elevation, cross different parts of the territory of Cuba.
The island is divided into 15 provinces and one special municipality
