Holguín is a city in the eastern part of Cuba.

Get in[edit]

Aeropuerto Internacional Frank País (HOG) is located 14km from the city. There are direct flights from many Canadian cities year-round, and others seasonally. There are also flights from Frankfurt, Milan, London and Manchester on airplanes that are mostly full of package holiday tourists - you can sometimes get a bargain if you are flexible with dates as the tour companies don't sell all their package holidays.

Holguín has some of the richest scenery in Cuba. High mountains, fertile plains and fine-sand beaches alternate in the landscape of this province. It was in this area where Christopher Colombus landed (Bariay).

Beaches in Holguín are among the most picturesque in the Caribbean. They are surrounded by vegetation, whose intense green color creates a contrast with the white golden tone of the sand and the blue color of the sea.

There is a wide variety of attractions in Holguín. The capital city and Gibara are worth visiting, as well as Banes, Bahía de Naranjo, Cayo Saetía and Pinares de Mayarí.

Holguín is located in the most septentrional part of Eastern Cuba, between Las Tunas and Guantanamo. To the south it has Granma and Santiago de Cuba.
