Even the well-travelled Christopher Columbus proclaimed this a land of unparalleled beauty. But if you want to make up your own mind, an all inclusive vacation is the best way to travel to Holguin on the cheap, and find out what makes it such a favoured destination.
Holguin province has lush green fields, steep slopes covered with pine forests, and white, sandy beaches, giving you plenty of choices for ways to spend your vacation days, while the city itself has a rich colonial history and you can travel back in time in rambling Spanish-style 'casas,' quaint churches, and museums. There are parks galore where you can stroll for hours, and if you're looking for something a little more exciting, climb up to the crucifix atop the Loma de la Cruz and enjoy panoramic views of the city below, cheer at a game in the local baseball stadium, or sample some of the excellent beer produced at the local Canadian-Cuban Cerveceria Bucanero brewery.
Most tourists booking all inclusive vacations to Holguin choose to spend their time at the beach towns like Guardalavaca, Playa Esmeralda, and Playa Pesquero. But whether you choose to be near the sea, in the hills, or somewhere in between, Holguin will give you a taste of Cuban life that will have you soon coming back for more.
