Holguin Vacations

Holguin vacations offer a unique opportunity to explore Cuba’s culture and natural beauty in the country’s third largest city, after Havana and Santiago de Cuba. Located in the north-east region of Cuba, the city of Holguin has a history dating back to 1545. Holguin vacations give tourists the opportunity to experience old and new, urban and natural beauty, in one of the most popular holiday destinations in Cuba. The rugged beauty of the surrounding mountainous landscape is inspiring and the tropical forests remain virtually untouched to this day. Spend your all-inclusive Holguin vacation at one of the 41 beaches, including the beautiful white sands of Esmeralda, Pesquero, and Guardalavaca. Delight in diving and snorkeling opportunities, as well as other water and land sports. Enjoy the ecotourism, mountain hikes, dolphin swims, and discover the vibrant aquatic life that can be found inhabiting the 900 meters of coral reef in nearby waters. For those looking to experience the province’s cultural side, the urban center of Holguin offers historical sites of interest.

Getting Around: Once you arrive at the Holguin Airport (HOG), board a shuttle to your hotel. While there is really no need to leave the resort with all of the amenities located on the property, buses and taxis are available for transportation. 

Where to Stay: All-inclusive vacations in Holguin are known for their lovely hotels and fantastic Cuban hospitality. Choose from resorts including Blau Costa Verde, Paradisus Rio De Oro, and Playa Pesquero

Weather: Temperatures in Holguin are some of the best in Cuba because of its location on the north-east side of the island. Low temperatures during the winter rarely dip below 20C whereas high temperatures can reach up to 30C. During the summer, daytime high temperatures can occasionally reach the 40C mark. 

Attractions: The city features parks worth exploring. The Cathedral de San Isidro, located in Parque Peralta, one of Holguin's famous parks, adorns the city centre. This cathedral, built in 1770 (restored in recent years), features a grand bell tower and beautiful aesthetic that inspires even the most amateur photographer. For the best view of the city, many Holguin tourists take the time to climb the 450 steps to Loma de la Cruz (Hill of the Cross). This hilltop location features a lookout tower and a large cross that was erected in 1790, and offers an outstanding panoramic view over the city of Holguin.

Holguin offers an assortment of budget-friendly vacation packages for the sun lover. Call 1-800-665-4981 to learn more!

Playa Costa Verde: Resort is fair

The rooms were very acceptable, the staff very friendly and helpful to all requests, the food was somehow ok if your not a picky eater. The place itself is big and spacious for everyone, all the grounds very well maintained. One thing that it would need is a little more entertaining at night started at 9:00 and ended +/- 10:00. The snack bar and lobby bar open 24 hours. The pool would need some renewal, tiles missing and some mildu at some areas. The buffet area is not enclosed in an air conditioning room so you get the heat from outside and from all the burners and more. (Should be mentioned in the website, no A/C). Now for the beach, the walk way threw the swamp to go to the beach smelled bad, and the water looked ugly brown, but the sand was beautiful, loved the beach bar, but we all had a hard time getting into the ocean because of all the rocks, bolders, and corals all over the place, I did not understand why, just a little walk away the some other resorts does not have any of those issues in the ocean !!!!
