Holguín is one of the richest locations for Cuban nature. High sierras, fertile plains and beaches with fine sand alternate within the landscape of a province which is uniquely beautiful and has a number of attractions. It was in this part of Cuba (Bariay) where Admiral Christopher Columbus landed in 1492, and he was fascinated by its beauty.
Holguin's beaches are among the most picturesque in the Caribbean, with turquoise waters, warm and calm thanks to the natural shelter offered by the coral reefs, and completely recommended for enjoying sunbathing in Cuba. They are surrounded by dense vegetation with an intense green color that creates a fabulous contrast with the golden white of the sand and the clear blue of the sea.
The city of Holguín guarantees a varied choice of entertainment options. Visit the coastal city of Gibara, learn about Aboriginal culture in Banes, go into some of its forests and discover the charms of the Bahía de NaranjoNational Park, admire nature at Cayo Saetía or go hiking in Pinares de Mayarí. And these are only a few of the interesting options.
Holguín is located in the northern part of eastern Cuba, between the provinces of Las Tunas and Guantánamo, to the west and east, respectively. It borders to the south with Granma and Santiago de Cuba and to the north with the Atlantic Ocean.
