Santiago de Cuba
Santiago de Cuba is the most exotic city of Cuba. It has lots of different etnic groups having settled themselves in this city. Santiago is the second biggest city, after Havana. Santiago de Cuba is a city full with history of the revolution, the fight against dictator Batista. That excellent site close by the Caribbean sea, with a backdrop of mountains and terrain which determined that none of the city's street would be absolutely level is the setting of one of the most beautiful and joyous of Cuba's cities, filled with a mixture of architectural styles which run from the baroque to the neoclassical. In total, about 500.000 people live here. Explore its narrow, winding streets, that are filled with both history and music streets bordered by large windows and crowded balconies overflowing with flowers. This is a place where you have to get within touching distance and where you won't feel let down if you follow the golden rule that every minute of a vacation should have a surprise, something to admire or a good place to explore. Add to this the tropical climate and you have a perfect cocktail for a holiday.
