days
Santiago de Cuba

Santiago de Cuba has taken almost as much influence from Haiti and the Dominican Republic as it has from Havana, distilling a concoction of cultures to create a city with a distinct identity.
San Pedro de la Roca del Morro Castle and Cementerio Santa Ifigenia will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Cayo Saetia Island and Parque Nacional de Baconao. Change things up with these side-trips from Santiago de Cuba: El Cobre Basilica (in El Cobre) and Sugar Cane Museum (in Guama). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Moncada Barracks, take an in-depth tour of Casa de Diego Velazquez, head off the coast to Granma Island (Cayo Granma), and see the interesting displays at Emilio Bacardi Moreau Museum.

For traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Santiago de Cuba travel itinerary creator.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Antonio Maceo International Airport and Frank Pais International Airport. October in Santiago de Cuba sees daily highs of 87°F and lows of 74°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
