Cuba is the most populous insular nation in the Caribbean. Its people, culture and customs draw from several sources including the aboriginal Taíno and Ciboney peoples, the period of Spanish colonialism, the introduction of African slaves, and its proximity to the United States.

 

The name 'Cuba' comes from the Taíno language the exact meaning of which is unclear, but may be translated either 'where fertile land is abundant' or 'great place').
