A cool blend of Afro-Caribbean and Spanish cultures makes Santiago holidays a fun-filled yet enriching experience. The beautiful coast, amazing nightlife and the music circuit of Santiago are worth checking out.
The capital of the province of Santiago de Cuba, Santiago is the second largest city in Cuba, after Havana. Some important points that you need to keep in mind for your Santiago holidays are following:
·Plan and book well in advance if you’re thinking of using public transport such as trains and buses for breakdowns and delays are not uncommon in Cuba.
·Tourists cannot use dollars in Santiago – they need to exchange the money for Cuban Convertible Pesos (CUC) which is to be used for all purposes.
·The local time in Santiago is five hours ahead of the GMT.
