The Cuban News Agency reports that the modality is increasing. It adds that the Cuban travel agency ECOTUR, specialized in ecotourism, offers visitors a wide range of excursions to natural and historical sites in Holguin and in other Cuban eastern provinces.
Among the options is Baracoa’s tour in Guantanamo, the first village founded in Cuba by Spaniards in 1511. Baracoa stands out for its mountain ranges, crystalline water rivers and beaches, and chocolate production.

Santiago de Cuba is another of the provinces included in these proposals with two routes, where sites of historical value are visited such as the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Charity of ‘El Cobre,’ the Moncada Barracks and the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery. The second route focuses on La Gran Piedra mountain range, a mountain crowned with a rock of over 60,000 tons, surrounded by other interesting sites such as the Birds of Paradise, Botanical Garden and the La Isabelica Museum.
