Street Scenes, Holguín
The Taste of Cuba tour, offered during our stay at the Hotel Playa Pesquero, was a delightful day spent touring the fishing village Gibera, the city of Holguin, and made stops at a cigar factory, museum, and had free time as well as lunch in a small restaurant.
We greatly appreciated the opportunity to learn a bit more about Cuban life & culture, and mingle off the resort.
One note about this tour, however, keep in mind that while it is exciting to buy product at the cigar factory, there is plenty to choose from at the resort, and from what my partner & I saw, some of the prices at the resort were better (we bought at both locations).
After having a great lunch in the restaurant "1720" we visited the central market place !! Near "La Periquera or Parrot Cage" you will see the local cinema.
A lot of Cubans has the custom to look at films - most of them copies of an American broadcasting because Cuba is not obliged to pay the taxes - so the income fee can be helt low ! Typical Cuba
