Holguin

Holguin ©
Not overly touristy, Holguin offers a different perspective on Cuban life, standing as a major city that doesn't seek to commercialize its past or cover itself in all inclusive resorts.
Keep things going the next day: hunt for treasures at Guardalavaca Flea Market, then kick back and relax at Guardalavaca Beach, and then take some stellar pictures from Hill of the Cross (Loma de la Cruz).

Plan my trip to Holguin with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Manchester, UK to Holguin is an approximately 18-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Manchester to Holguin due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Manchester in January: high temperatures in Holguin hover around 34°C and lows are around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Wed) to allow time for travel to Cayo Largo.
