Cuba - Holguin Province (Chapter)
This is the Holguín Province chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cuba guidebook.
Cuba’s contradictions are magnified in Holguín. Perhaps something in the undeniable beauty of the province’s hill-studded hinterland breeds extremes. The environmental degradation around Moa’s nickel mines jars rather awkwardly with the pine-scented mountains of the Sierra Cristal, while the inherent Cuban-ness of Gibara contrasts sharply with the tourist swank of resort-complex Guardalavaca.
