Holguín is a city of more than 300,000 residents off the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. While it is not defined as a resort town, it includes a tourist area with beach resorts on its outskirts, making a great option for travellers who prefer a quieter and less touristy area of Cuba.
The city has a number of connections to Canada, in addition to being a popular tourist spot. One of its sister cities is Etobicoke, Ontario, and it is home to the Cervecería Bucanero brewery, which is a joint venture with Labatt Breweries of Canada.
