HOLGUÍN TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eatRopa vieja (Cuba’s national dish of shredded beef and vegetables) or vaca frita (crispy fried beef), Cuban tamales, guava-filled pastries and sweet flan.
What to bring backCuban coffee and chocolate, a postcard from the Sierra Cristal National Park, wood-carved items from the Guardalavaca flea market and Cristal or Bucanero beer from the breweries located here.
Fun FactAntelopes, wild boars, zebras, oh my! No, these are not native to Cuba, but somehow you can spot them roaming about Cayo Saetía, a national park in Holguín province. The exotic animals were gifts or imports from African countries and populated this islet once used as a private holiday home for Fidel Castro and his family. You can now explore the forests and beaches of the area, or embark on a jeep safari!
