In this article the tourism products and their principal components are conceptualized; the role of experience in the formation of tourism products and the differences in existing relations between both terms is shown; and a critical analysis is made of one of the classifications of products in order to finally explain three types of existing tourism products in the Historical Centre of Havana, Cuba.

Keywords : Producto turístico; Oferta y demanda; Experiencias; Comercialización turística.
