A Truly Spirited City

Perched on the Caribbean Sea southeast of the capital of Havana is Santiago de Cuba. The soul of Cuba’s second largest city is bustling, diverse and bursting at the seams with fascinating history and cultural life.

The launching pad of Castro’s revolution, home of Don Facundo Bacardí’s first rum factory, and birthplace of myriad forms of Cuban music, Santiago de Cuba is an eclectic mix of influences with a distinct Caribbean spirit and Afro-Cuban culture.

Enjoy breathtaking views from Castillo de San Pedro de la Roca del Morro, a legendary 16th-century fort known as “El Morro”, or visit Parque Nacional Alejandro de Humboldt in the Nipe-Sagua-Baracoa Mountains, declared by UNESCO as “one of the most biologically diverse tropical island sites on earth.” Stroll around and take it all in: the rich colonial heritage and sights like the imposing but beautiful Basilica de la Caridad del Cobre.

Whatever your pace, the streets of this vibrant city definitely have a pulse of their own.
