This province is actually the for-tourist destination in Cuba, it goes along with the capital of the province (with the same name) and different beaches areas.
It was in this area of Cuba (Bariay) where Christopher Columbus landed in 1492, who was fascinated by its beauty and called it “the most beautiful land that human eyes have seen”.
The extraordinary beauty, the blue-green hue of its waters, and the white sand are attributes that identify the beaches of the north of Holguín, a region generously benefited by nature and history that demonstrates the excellence of its beaches areas as Guardalavaca, Don Lino, Pesquero and Esmeralda.
