Not overly touristy, Holguin offers a different perspective on Cuban life, standing as a major city that doesn't seek to commercialize its past or cover itself in all inclusive resorts.
Relax by the water at Guardalavaca Beach and Playa Pesquero. Your inner history buff will appreciate El Chorro de Maita Museum and Basilica de la Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Holguin: Catedral Del Santisimo Salvador De Bayamo (in Manzanillo), Paseo Bayames (in Bayamo) and Bateria de Fernando VII (in Gibara). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Bahia de Naranjo Nature Park, get to know the fascinating history of Museo El Chorro de Maíta, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Isidore Cathedral, and enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Esmeralda.
