The name “Cienfuegos” comes from two words: cien, which means “one hundred”, and fuegos, which means “fires”. Nestled around the Bay of Jagua, the city of one hundred fires has the vigor of a Caribbean paradise and the elegance of Paris. Known as La Perla del Sur (Pearl of the South), Cienfuegos is a colonial haven in the agriculturally-rich area of south-central Cuba. Home to more than 150,000 residents, this enchanting city by the bay has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005.

Originally part of Spanish territory, the city was established by French immigrants in 1819. Its grid-like layout, an innovative style of urban landscaping during the 19th century, is dotted with stunning neoclassical residential homes and buildings. In Cienfuegos, the merging of French and Spanish cultures can be felt in its street names, plazas, flamenco concerts, and overall culture. Because of its pleasantly contrasting elements of sophistication and liveliness, the city welcomes visitors from all over the world looking to experience a different side of Cuba. If you’re raring to explore the city’s narrow streets and unique ambiance, here are some Airbnb vacation rentals to keep in mind.
