City of Bridges

Though located near a popular tourist resort, Matanzas remains a relatively small town with a strong cultural heritage. Many biking enthusiasts choose to take a trip to Matanzas from Havana, taking side roads to discover friendly little settlements and soak up the spirit of everyday life in Cuba. Tour Matanzas to see the area's three rivers and cross 17 bridges, linking various neighborhoods and giving the city's its second nickname, "Venice of Cuba." The birthplace of rumba and danzon dance traditions, Matanzas serves as one of Cuba's cultural hubs, housing some of the country's top theaters. Find what you're looking for from your Matanzas holiday, by planning the whole thing with us using our handy Cuba trip builder.
