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.
Get out of town with these interesting Holguin side-trips: Monumento al Cimarron (in Santiago de Cuba), Bayamo (Paseo Bayames & Casa Natal De Carlos Manuel De Cespedes) and Guardalavaca (Guardalavaca Flea Market & Las Guanas Eco-Archaeologic Trail). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Guardalavaca Beach, step off the mainland to explore Cayo Saetia Island, explore the different monuments and memorials at El Chorro de Maita Museum, and stroll around BioParque Rocazul.

For where to stay, maps, and tourist information, read Holguin trip planner.

December in Holguin sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 23°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
