Delve into the history of Cuba with an exclusive guide just for you and your group on one of our private day trips from Holguin. Don't miss out!

Private Day Trip from Holguin

Escape Holguin for a day and discover the fascinating places located around the city on one of our private day trips. Both of them start at 9 am, last between 6 and 6.5 hours, and include hotel pick-up, transport in a classic car, and an English-speaking guide.

Take a look at the itineraries of each tour below: 

Bariay National Monument Tour

With this private day trip option, you'll have the opportunity to visit the Bariay National Monument, home to indigenous sculptures and neoclassical ruins. This location is the first place that Christopher Columbus spotted when he arrived in Cuba and while we're here we'll talk about the period of Spanish colonialism and the people native to the Jururú and Bariay bays. 

Afterwards, we'll visit a nearby house to enjoy a delicious Cuban coffee and coconut water. We'll then take a tour around Bariay Park by carriage, on horseback or on foot to discover its mangroves and other plant life. To round off the excursion, we'll take a dip in the paradise Bariay Beach. This tour will follow a similar route to the group Bariay National Monument Tour.

Gibara Tour

After picking you up from your hotel in Holguin, we'll take you to the coastal town of Gibara. There we'll visit some of its main attractions, including the Batería de Fernando VII, a fort from 1817, and the Plaza de Armas with its famous colonial buildings. We'll also visit the Natural History Museum, where we'll learn curious facts about the local wildlife as well as seeing the skeletons of some of the most impressive sea creatures.

Next, we'll enter the Cueva de la Panadero, or Bakers' Cave, where we'll spot different names engraved in the rocks. We'll discover why they're there on the day! This tour follows a similar route to that of our group Gibara Day Trip

Hotel Pick Up

These private day trips include pick up from the following hotels in Holguin: Brisas Guardalavaca, Atlántico Club Amigo, Playa Costa Verde, Playa Pesquero, Fiesta Americana, Sol Río de Lunas y Mares, Paradisus Río de Oro and Memories Holguín.
