  • The prettiest area in Cuba. Very nice and a lot of trees that have not been uprooted by the hurricane. A nice place.

  • Fine sand and a sea inviting to spend days relaxing. There are all-inclusive hotels but you can access for free at the beach. And swimming in the Caribbean is a real treat.

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.
