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!
