The Capitol of Matanzas Province

There are fifteen provinces in Cuba and each province has a capitol city. Each capitol has the same name as the host province. So the City of Matanzas is the capitol of Matanzas Province.

The City of Matanzas abouy 35 km west of Varadero and 100 km east of Havana. There is an international airport, a university, a deepwater port , a railroad connection and lots of beautiful people going about leading their daily lives. You could purchase a ticket on to take the train west to Havana or south east to Saintiago. Matanzas is definately worth a look-see.
