Holguin Vacations

Holguin Vacations

Summary
Holguin Vacation Packages is the best way for you to step into a different world within Cuba.
Holguin is not your average city. It is not all wrapped up in pretty paper to dazzle you. It is the real deal and loaded with easygoing (Spanish speaking) locals, less expensive traditional foods, and inexpensive accommodations in comparison to the resorts and hotels that line the beaches. This destination is the real Cuba; down-to-earth, relaxing, and authentic!
Crime exists in Holguin, but you are at a higher risk if you are roaming around late at night alone, or if you are flashing large sums of money while making a purchase somewhere...conceal most of your valuables (jewellery should be light and not tempting), and only pull out smaller denomination bills for purchases. Beaches in and around Holguin include Playa Guardalavaca, Playa Yuraguanal, Playa Esmeralda, and Playa Pesquero just to name a few.
Culture
Holguin Vacation Packages are a wealth of information for you, going so far as to let you in on some interesting facts about the country you are visiting. Established by the Spanish in the mid-15th Century and named after Captain Garcia Holguin, the area was not long in growing with settlers. Today, Holguin is known as the city of parks, as it has many beautiful parks within the city limits (Calixto Garcia, Parque San Jose, Parque Infantil, Parque Marti, and Parque San Isidoro).
Exploration
You will not believe it until you experience it via Holguin Vacations...sitting in one of the central squares of Holguin is sometimes more interesting than taking a guided tour through the city (and sitting costs you nothing). From the many squares, or even within the parks, there is always something going on, from live music to moving food vendors to grab a light snack to absorbing how the locals live. Brewing their own beers is necessary, as the Holguin locals love their brew. You do have a handful of museums and sites you can take in (Centro Provincial de Arte, Bayado, La Periquera, Theatre Eddy Sunol and the Loma de la Cruz hill...if you can make the 450 steps up to the top, you have earned the 360-degree view of the whole city!
Food
Within the scope of your Vacation Packages in Holguin, you will learn about just how much Holguin locals love their Mixto or Cuban sandwiches (made up of locally-made bread, and between the slices are roast pork, sliced ham, Swiss cheese, dill pickles, and a splash of mustard). Other popular sandwiches are the Elena Ruz (cream cheese, strawberry jam and slices of turkey breast in-between), the Medianoche (exactly the same ingredients as a Cuban, but in place of the bread, an egg loaf is used), the Pan Con Lechon (Cuban bread, steak, onions and mojito), and the Pan Con Timba (bread, guayaba paste and cream cheese). Main dishes have certain consistent staples such as beans & rice, and flavourings can include tomatoes, onions, garlic, citruses, vinegars, peppers, wine or beer, and olives.
Nightlife
A dull moment is the last thing you will experience with your Vacations in Holguin, especially when it comes to the energy that seems to pick right up after the sun goes down.
The Disco Havana Club and the Salon Benny More are fantastic for live music & dancing. The Jazz Club is an excellent venue for jazz lovers, and the La Caverna, the Bar Terraza and the Taberna Mayabe are all great drinking spots.
