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.
Get out of town with these interesting Santiago de Cuba side-trips: El Cobre (El Cobre Basilica & Basilica de la Virgen de la Caridad del Cobre) and Cayo Saetia Island (in Holguin). The adventure continues: explore the different monuments and memorials at Cementerio Santa Ifigenia, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, examine the collection at Emilio Bacardi Moreau Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Casa de Diego Velazquez.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Antonio Maceo International Airport and Frank Pais International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in December, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
