“the heart of the city of Holguin”

Ranked #8 of 30 things to do in Holguin
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 April 2017

this park is the heart of the city, a great meeting place for large groups I find it is better to go early in the day or late afternoon/night during the day with the tropical sun their seat can get pretty hot, seems that was recently renovated so looks pretty good for Cuba

Lots of little stores and places to get a drink all around the square, you're going to need it because the sun glares off the white stone like a magnifying glass and on a very hot day you could feel like an egg meeting a frying pan.A few trees for shade but usually they're all taken.

A nice place to sit and watch the world go by. Holguin is called the "city of parks" and this is one of the nicest. Fully revamped and fixed up in the winter of 2016-17.

Clean park where people use wifi, sit and visit, meet friends. Can feel the colonial influence here more. Parts of the sidewalks were under construction in March 2017.

In the heart of Cuba horse drawn carts everywhere. Nice stores around here and a cigar cafe nearby. We took a cab for the day from the Don Lino for 30 cuc for the day. The driver was our tourguide and took us to yge hillo of yhe cross and this plaza. It was a real taste of authentica cuba a.provincial capital.
