WHAT TO DO:

This is the perfect destination to take your kids out for a swim with the dolphins. Most hotels in the area offer transport services to and from the local Delphinarium, where after a marine animal show; one can go swimming with the dolphins. Hotels and tour operators also offer deep sea fishing expeditions and coral reef observation tours; both outstanding, since the region is home to an abundance of different species of fish. Many hotels also offer a wide variety of water sports, including sailing and kayaking. Want to get-away from it all? Why not take a tour to Cayo Saetia, just 42 kilometers off the coast? This is an ideal location where one can go snorkelling, swimming, sunbathe or tour the natural park. This place has got it all! On the other hand, when in Holguin, one does not need to go so far to enjoy the many beaches of white powder sand.

WHAT TO SEE :

Visitors who want to discover the area around Holguin can visit one of many natural parks, especially the natural path of Las Guanas, near the Sol Rio de Luna y Mares and Paradisius Rio de Oro resorts.

WHAT TO KNOW:

Despite its growing popularity, Holguin has maintained its charm and Cuban flavor, in a totally safe environment. It is the ideal vacation spot where families will find a perfect balance of fun and educational activities amidst beautiful natural surroundings.

ELECTRICITY:

110 V., 60Hz. American outlets. Some hotels have 220 V. outlets.

CURRENCY:

The currency is the Cuban convertible Peso. A special exit tax of 25 convertible Peso must be paid at the airport while leaving the country.

TIPPING:

Local tourist industry workers largely depend on tips to get by. Giving a dollar to tour guides, hotel security guards, bus drivers and the thoughtful restaurant personnel is highly appreciated. In fact any one you encounter that goes out of their way to make your stay more enjoyable deserves a tip. Tipping can lead to that special advice or extra help when needed.
