Holguin Holidays

Holguin is a sleepy little province in Cuba. It features in contrast the sparkling sea and pine-laden mountains versus the nickel mines of the east. Holguin holidays translate into an exploration of many such paradoxes.

Holguin is the capital city of a province of the same name in Cuba. The beachside resorts of Holguin doling out mint-laced Mojito (rum-based cocktail typical of the region), the skimpily clad local girls dancing out on Cuban tunes, the cheerful beach volleyball games, the excitement going on at domino tables – all this and more defines Holguin. Holguin has some of the most beautiful natural sceneries in Cuba. Some interesting facts about Holguin are given here:
