Eastern Cuba Adventure

Colonial Holguín city - Musical Santiago de Cuba - Incredible Baracoa - Beaches of Guaradalavaca
Unique about this tour:
  • Sizzling dance moves in Santiago de Cuba
  • Visit Holguín - the famous Cuban City of Parks
  • See the table mountain El Yunque in Baracoa with your own eyes
  • Recharge your batteries for a few days on the beach of Guardalavaca

Eastern Cuba is a magical place. Many times it is overlooked and the beauty is relatively untouched. This trip to Cuba will be one that amazes. Enjoy the green parks of Holguin (also known as the ‘city of parks’) and its own brewed beer, it is time to head over to Baracoa, Cuba’s oldest and first town where Spanish settlers first located themselves. Enjoy its gorgeous nature in the national park Alejandro Humboldt (visit the El Yunque Table Mountain) and the idyllic beaches where not a lot of tourists venture.

Guardalavaca is where you will come to relax and do nothing but sip your cocktail at the beach or the swimming pool in the hotel. It’s the perfect ending of a short but sweet trip to the East of Cuba. You adventure starts in Cuba and the people welcome you with open arms.

Around the marvelous Baracoa

Baracoa is believed to be the first place in Cuba where Christopher Columbus arrived. In spite of this fact the remote location at the eastern end of the Cuban island has kept the influence of mass tourism quite low, despite the idyllic location. Have you ever wondered how it feels to walk around a town, surrounded by splendid nature? You would undoubtedly enjoy the Caribbean vibes which this wonderful place offers!
