Hill of the Cross (Loma de la Cruz)

Reviewed By CubaScot - Port Perry, Canada

Part of a day trip to Holguin, the view from the top is SPECTACULAR. If you have the opportunity to go up there, don't pass it up...Holguin is Cuba's third largest city and you get a prime view of Cuban-urban sprawl!!!

Playa Esmeralda

Reviewed By 421AnnaM

We visited that beach on several occasions since 2015. Perfectly white sand and perfectly blue and warm ocean. Great for snorkeling. There are few places to get some food or buy some souvenirs.

Cayo Saetia Island

Reviewed By kathyhayward3 - Victoria Harbour, Canada

This island has amazing beaches with interesting shells. The surf was up the day we were there and it was great to watch the waves crash and splash high off the rocks. The food for lunch was very good. But the safari was the best. I didn't think we would really see many animals - boy! was I wrong! There are at least 3 different kinds of antelope, tiny deer, zebras, water buffalo, and even ostriches! They are all healthy looking and have great grazing areas. There were lots of all of them. The ride was rough in the truck so bring something to sit on.

Playa Pesquero

Reviewed By 306carlat

I went for a "girls only" trip with a couple of friends and we were all very happy with our stay at Playa Pesquero. As women travelling alone there is a worry about safety - we felt very safe at the resort. The room was large and clean, the beds (King size plus a single bed was added) were comfortable - the rooms were quiet so we all slept really well. The staff was very friendly and the grounds kept in excellent condition. Many of the staff are bilingual, and in some cases trilingual (Spanish, English and French) The beach was fantastic, all that powdery white sand and turquoise water - we were there every day! You DO need to get down there early if you want a spot with shade - no problem for me as I am an early riser. There are plenty of water activities too: we did some aqua fit/dancing in the ocean, took out a paddle boat and went kayaking. We also borrowed snorkeling gear and swam out to the reef - I wish I had an underwater camera because there were schools of fish that came quite close to us. We ate at 4 of the a la carte restaurants for dinner (Yareyal - grilled food; Caletones - seafood; La Gondola - Italian and the Trattoria - Mediterranean) we were quite happy with the quality of food served and the friendly staff. The fish was terrific and I think we ate lobster every day - quite a treat! We ate breakfast at La Pipa (24 hour beer garden) and were served by the lovely Ada (she is so sweet and friendly!) I am crazy about their little hot cakes and the sausage ???? People do need to realize that, except for the Romantic and Italian restaurants, it is all open air eating - there is a roof, but no walls. Same with the Lobby - which had a large bar and lots of seating for evening socializing. We took the Catamaran - Sun Cruise excursion from the hotel. Another great time! The Captain, Orlando and Alex were entertaining, took us to a reef for snorkeling then the dolphinarium to swim with dolphins. Amazing day! best 95 pesos we ever spent. The only negative thing I have to say is it would be nice if there were more hooks at the hotel- such as in the bathroom stalls or in the hotel rooms - so we can hang our purses/bags when using the facilities or hang our towels after use. But that is a minor inconvenience. I would happily recommend Playa Pesquero and hope to return for a family vacation.
