Parque Calixto Garcia, Holguin

4.1
#5 of 10 in Parks in Holguin
Relax in Parque Calixto Garcia, a small plaza in the center of the city. Removed from the more touristy areas, this makes a great place to take a break and observe Cuban culture. Watch the locals bustling about their day, listen to buskers, or shop in the local craft stores. Head to one of the nearby restaurants if you want a bite to eat. Keep your belongings close since pickpockets may frequent the area; local business owners stay vigilant, however.

    Together with the family, with children and elderly adults were there to walk. You can take ice cream and enjoy nearby attractions to the place, even if only we could enjoy the Park after 6:30 pm because there are few trees which give shade. It is a park with theatre, cafes, cultural sites, museums, nightclubs and communications around. A good choice for healthy enjoyment!

    It is very picturesque and quiet always with people inside. Regularly there are musical events and it has two great monuments, a marble statue of major general Calixto García, located in the Centre of the roundabout and the monument dedicated to the mothers. Surrounding magnificent buildings of ancient illustrious inhabitants of Holguín

    Pretty park in the central part of Holguin. Lots of places to people watch and grab a bite to eat or drink. You can even pick up an internet card nearby to get access to the national Wi-Fi portal.

    Its the main central park in Holguin where locals gather to socialize, listen to Cuban "mariachis" and use Wi-Fi (available after purchasing data card from vendor in the plaza around the park). Great place for people - watching.
