ABSTRACT
The article examines the changes of environmental condition in Cuba. The authors discuss the major environmental changes taking in the country and they also identify the manifestations that are similar to those experienced in the Southeastern U.S. They also conclude that socio-economic and cultural changes in the country beginning in the 1990s that led to liberalization of the tourism as well as agricultural economic sectors have had direct impacts on the urban and natural landscape in the area.
