Holguín is a city in the eastern part of Cuba.

Get in[edit]

Aeropuerto Internacional Frank País (HOG) is a small-size airport located 13 km southwest of the city. The airport has 2 terminals: An International Terminal and a small Domestic Terminal. There are direct international flights from/to Miami, Manchester, Cancun, London, Frankfurt, Montréal and Toronto, as well as domestic flights from/to Havana and Moa. The international ones are mostly full of package holiday tourists - you can sometimes get a bargain if you are flexible with dates as the tour companies don't sell all their package holidays.

Beaches in Holguín are among the most picturesque in the Caribbean. They are surrounded by vegetation, whose intense green color creates a contrast with the white golden tone of the sand and the blue color of the sea.
