Cuba is the largest island of the West Indies, located south of Florida of the United States and east of the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico. It forms, with various adjacent islands, the republic of Cuba. Cuba commands the two entrances to the Gulf of Mexico-the Straits of Florida and the Yucatán Channel. On the east, Cuba is separated from the island of Hispaniola by the Windward Passage, a shipping route between the North Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The United States maintains a naval base at Guantánamo Bay in the southeast. Havana is Cuba's capital and largest city
