Santiago de Cuba

Santiago de Cuba has taken almost as much influence from Haiti and the Dominican Republic as it has from Havana, distilling a concoction of cultures to create a city with a distinct identity.
Get out of town with these interesting Santiago de Cuba side-trips: Casa Natal De Carlos Manuel De Cespedes (in Bayamo), Cayo Saetia Island (in Holguin) and El Cobre Basilica (in El Cobre). There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at Cementerio Santa Ifigenia, stroll around Cespedes Park, contemplate the long history of Moncada Barracks, and see the interesting displays at Emilio Bacardi Moreau Museum.
