Holguin vacation tips
Bring cash with you. Of currency, it is better to take the euro. Dollars in Cuba change with a large commission.
For those who smoke, we advise to take cigarettes with you. They are expensive in Cuban stores.
The sun in Holguin is very active. Stock up on high-protection cream and wear light cotton clothing with long sleeves.
In modern Cuban hotels, outlets are made to European standards. Some older hotels and the private sector have three-prong plugs that require an “America/Europe” adapter.
Asya Drozd: “In my room, there were only triple-socket outlets. I had to buy a charger for 13 CUC. Take an adapter with you just in case.”
If you want to get to other Cuban cities on your own, we suggest taking the air-conditioned Viazul buses. Travelling by rail is cheaper, but less comfortable.
