Surrounded by lush mountains on one side and pristine beaches on the other, Holguin offers unparalleled breathtaking natural landscapes.

Holguin is within easy reach of historic cities like Santiago de Cuba, which you can explore on a Sunwing Experiences day excursion. There are plenty of opportunities for eco exploration as well, whether you want to traverse national parks that are home to magical waterfalls or tour the mountains on a Jeep safari.
