Holguin

Beaches · Lookouts · Islands
City of Parks
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. Visitors find something refreshingly normal about the city, with the main attractions in Holguin for international tourists being the same things the locals like about the place: the parks, the squares, and locally-brewed beer. Vacations in Holguin typically include a trip down to the coast too, where locals and tourists lie on the beaches, admiring the stretch of coast that Christopher Columbus called 'the most beautiful land that human eyes have ever seen'. Add Holguin and other Cuba destinations to your travel plans using our Cuba road trip app.

Where to stay in Holguin

Holguin abounds with accommodations, although even this large selection is not always enough to cater to the swarms of tourists who visit during peak season, between December and March. The city center remains the most popular neighborhood, known for its charming architecture. Look in the streets surrounding Parque Calixto Garcia to stay in a cozy bed and breakfast or a budget-friendly hostel.
