HISTORY: In 1492 Christopher Columbus claimed Cuba for Spain. For the next 400 years, Spain ruled Cuba. In the 1800s Cubans began a bloody struggle for independence from Spain's harsh rule. On February 15, 1898, the U.S. battleship Maine was blown up in Havana harbor. The U.S. joined Cuba in its war against Spain. A peace treaty signed in December 1898 forced Spain to give up Cuba. But U.S. soldiers remained in Cuba until 1902. A treaty gave the U.S. permission to build a naval base in Guantánamo, Cuba. In 1959 Fidel Castro took control of Cuba. Three years later, the U.S. stopped all trade with Cuba.

Cuba is an archipelago of islands located in the Caribbean Sea, with the geographic coordinates 21°3N, 80°00W. Cuba is the principal island, which is surrounded by four main groups of islands. These are the Colorados, the Sabana-Camagüey, the Jardines de la Reina and the Canarreos. The main island of Cuba constitutes most of the nation's land area or 105,006 km2 (40,543 sq mi) and is the seventeenth-largest island in the world by land area. The second largest island in Cuba is the Isla de la Juventud (Isle of Youth) in the southwest, with an area of 3,056 km2 (1,180 sq mi). Cuba has a total land area of 110,860 km2 (42,803 sq mi).

The main island consists mostly of flat to rolling plains. At the southeastern end is the Sierra Maestra, a range of steep mountains whose highest point is the Pico Real del Turquino at 1,975 meters (6,480 ft). The local climate is tropical, though moderated by trade winds. In general (with local variations), there is a drier season from November to April, and a rainier season from May to October. The average temperature is 21 °C in January and 27 °C in July. Cuba lies in the path of hurricanes, and these destructive storms are most common in September and October. Havana is the largest city and capital; other major cities include Santiago de Cuba and Camagüey. Better known smaller towns include Baracoa which was the first Spanish settlement on Cuba, Trinidad, a UNESCO world heritage site, and Bayamo.
