Experience Holguin

Holguin overview
Fast facts
  • Visit the City of Parks named for its green spaces
  • Explore incredible mountains and tropical forests that are virtually untouched
  • Relax and unwind along exquisite beaches

Once dubbed “the most beautiful land eyes have ever seen” by Christopher Columbus, Holguin’s mountains and tropical forests are virtually untouched, offering unparallelled ecotourism opportunities. However, Holguin’s beauty extends beyond its hills, offering exquisite beaches and amazing underwater dive sites. Holguin is also often described as The City of Parks and you’ll find at least six in the city centre, as well as many more in the outskirts. Ropa vieja is a best bet if you want to enjoy traditional Cuban fare. Made with shredded beef simmered in a tomato-based criollo (Spanish influenced) sauce until the meat is so tender it falls apart, it is a fan favourite among the locals.
