Cuba, Holguín in Loops

A healthy dose of Vitamin D

Nothing like sunny Cuba for a healthy dose of vitamin D! To fully appreciate the beauty of Holguin, you are based at the same hotel for a full week, with the beach and sea close by. From here, you bike from one loop to the next, enjoying stunning panoramas, scenic national parks and fascinating museums. Then each evening, you return to your hotel for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Add to this your hosts’ proverbial congeniality and you have a very enjoyable vacation scenario!
