Santiago de Cuba, Cuba

Santiago de Cuba, Cuba

Don’t be put off by the distance from Havana—Cuba’s second most-populated city is well worth the trip. Known for its musical culture, you’ll find amazing musicians at every turn and much colonial history to learn about. There is a different atmosphere here too, and you need to remember that the city is in fact closer to the Dominican Republic than it is to Havana, which has arguably shaped its cultural identity.
