Cubans of all generations know Expocuba. This is a multifaceted center, with varied offers for all ages. It was inaugurated by Fidel Castro on January 4, 1989. Since then it has hosted important events every year.
In this year 2017, Expocuba offered to the younger public a variety of recreational offers because of the school break week. The children and their parents could visit the different pavilions with exhibitions of diverse Cuban specialties. In particular, in the pavilions dedicated to Culture and Education, was possible to acquire recent editions of Cuban and international Children’s Literature.
Other attractions for children were the classic carousel and flying chairs. The exciting “crazy carts” gave parents and children a fun time. The younger ones could enjoy the attractions of the inflatable park and the “jumping canvas”.
The most demanded gastronomic offer was offered by the restaurant “El Mirador”, on top of a tower with a panoramic view. “The plane” also did not stop the public eager to enjoy the food served inside this aircraft of Cubana de Aviación.
A cultural activity with clowns, music and dancing captured the attention of children and adults. Everyone enjoyed the show in a healthy way. Dog lovers preferred to participate in the exhibition of skills of dogs and their trainers. Several children exhibited their pets in a caravan of animals of various races and sizes.
The EXPOCUBA exhibition center functions as Cuba’s largest exhibition center. It is located about twenty-five kilometers southeast of downtown Havana, on the Carretera del Rocío in Arroyo Naranjo. It has an area of six hundred thousand square meters, with twenty-five pavilions for exhibitions.
