Holguin
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.
Escape the urban bustle at Las Guanas Eco-Archaeologic Trail and Guayabo Falls. Museum-lovers will get to explore Museo Provincial La Periquera and Wax Museum. Explore Holguin's surroundings by going to Catedral Del Santisimo Salvador De Bayamo (in Manzanillo), Cementerio aborigen de Chorro de Maita (in Banes) and Basilica de la Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre (in El Cobre). The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Isidore Cathedral, take a stroll through Paseo Bayames, see the interesting displays at Casa Natal De Carlos Manuel De Cespedes, and don't miss a visit to Plaza de La Marqueta.
