Santiago de Cuba Vacations

Santiago de Cuba Vacations

Summary
Santiago de Cuba Vacation Packages are specifically put together in a way that is best geared for Canadian travellers that want to vacation in Cuba with the best savings.
Santiago de Cuba is the 2nd largest city of Cuba, full of lively locals, exuding history at every turn, and a cacophony of sounds, smells, and sunshine! Sitting on the Bay that directly connects to the Caribbean Sea, you have the best of both worlds when it comes to urbanite excitement and mariner life. There are a couple of beaches that are not rocky, and they are the Playa Siboney and the Los Corales by Carisol resort. If you make your way to Cayo Granma, then this cay is going to get you ‘away from it all’. The crime rate in this city is comparable to any large, urbanite city...you need to look like you belong, keep your valuables and money completely out of sight, and do not get caught up by the street hustlers (trying to sell you anything and everything).
Culture
Santiago de Cuba Vacation Packages gives you access to inside information about this city, such as how some Spanish explorers (Hernan Cortes for one) used Santiago de Cuba as a launching point for many expeditions in the 15th Century. African and Spanish cultures were the main influences here, but by the 18th Century, the British and the French made an appearance, and that just added to the growing cultural combinations. Poets (Jose Maria Heredia), musicians (Eliades Ochoa), and the performing arts/dance styles (son, guaguanco and salsa) all became engraved into the culture of Santiago de Cuba.
Exploration
Santiago de Cuba Vacations will put you right in the heart of what is important to the local people (they are very proud of their culture) beginning with the Citadel of San Pedro de la Roca, which is the most outstandingly preserved structure of Spanish/American military architecture (as per the UNESCO World Heritage List). Another must see is the original (18th Century) Bacardi Rum Factory. There are literally tons of museums around, but one of the better ones is the Moncada Museum. The Tivoli quarter is full of character (mostly Old French) and worth a peek, as is making your way to Calle Heredia (lively street music being played everywhere!).
Food
Dust off your taste buds and be prepared for a culinary journey of a lifetime (via the Vacation Packages in Santiago de Cuba). You will have a beautiful blend of Caribbean, African, Taino, and Spanish influences within the flavours of the local foods. Variations of rice and beans can be considered the main staples here, as is the regular use of corn. Many dishes (including meat dishes or seafood/fish/shellfish) have sides, like potato or yuca, and also can be served with plantains or bananas and a salad consisting of simple vegetables (cabbage, carrots, cucumber, tomato, avocado and lettuce). Dessert can be a piece of sheep milk cheese with candied guava sprinkled with cinnamon & anise. Some drinks found around the area are Iron beer & Hatuey beer, the Cuban Libre, Materva, Guarapo, and Malta.
Nightlife
The nightlife that you will experience via Vacations in Santiago de Cuba is just as enticing as the city itself. There are many nightclubs and bars in and around the city, but to make sure that you get to those popular spots, you can check out some of these: Barrita de Ron Havana, Club Bar Sindo Garay, Iris Jazz Club, Tropicana Santiago, Casa de las Tradiciones, Club Nautico, Club el Iris, and the Patio los Dos Abuelos if you are in the mood to tone it down and have a more relaxed atmosphere.
