Planning to Take Your Production to Cuba?

With the diplomatic opening, a growing number of films and series now want to shoot in Cuba.

As the cameras roll, there's also a sense of history being made.

Expect to see Cuba as the locale for more productions. Surely, Cuba is having its Hollywood moment!

Geographically, Cuba is an untouched paradise. In 2006, Cuba was the only nation in the world which met the World Wide Fund for Nature's definition of sustainable development; having an ecological footprint of less than 1.8 hectares per capita and a Human Development Index of over 0.8 for 2007. This makes the island an ideal backdrop for ecological and nature projects.

Cuba also has over 200 beaches, of which Varadero Beach, the Eastern Havana Beaches (Playas del Este) or the unexplored keys (Cayo Largo, Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo) are good examples. Out of the 588 kilometers of the beaches of Cuba, 256 of its foreshores are comprised in the country's twelve major tourist circuits, all of them outfitted with great hotel and nautical facilities for filming underwater or on sea.
