Not much more than a photo op. It is a giant statue of a crab near Cardenas, Cuba, I wouldn't go out of my way to go see it but if you are going to Havana, worth grabbing a picture.

If you drive from Varadero to Havana you'll see this beast. It's cool but I wouldn't go out of my way to go see it. It's just on the side of the road

Not much to say about it. Stop the car, take a pic with the large crab. Worth the five minutes it takes. Not sure why it's the third best ranked place to visit though.

The large concrete crab marks the entrance to the city of Cárdenas, Cuba. It really is a novelty and interesting to see.

Located on the road to Cardenas, almost at the entrance, at a Y intersection. You see it from the road. I guess you could stop to take photos. I never did. Besides... nothing to see. It's a road side decoration. But it's kinda nice.

Unexpected to see in the middle of nowhere really. You will pass this on the way to Cardenas or just on a drive.
