  • Cespedes Park is located in Santiago de Cuba
  • It limits to the north with the province of Holguín; to the west with Granma; to the south with the Caribbean Sea, and to the east with the province of Guantánamo. The province covers a total area of 6 343 21 , Km². You can get here through Antonio Maceo International Airport, also by road from any other part of Cuba, or by sea ─in this last case, requesting the services from Punta Gorda Marina.

    Two particular features characterizes Santiago de Cuba that make it exceptional: its hospitality, with people of happy and relaxed temperament and its rich historical-cultural wealth. Its Caribbean identity is evident in its popular music and in folklore manifestations. It depicts the title of Heroine City of the Republic of Cuba for the role carried out by its inhabitants in the revolutionary struggle during the decade of 1950. Privileged by its historical past, in Santiago de Cuba there are two of the Cuban places distinguished by UNESCO with the title of World Heritage: the San Pedro de la Roca Castle and the ruins of the first French coffee plantations in La Gran Piedra. The Santa Ifigenia cemetery , the 26 of July Historical Museum and the Siboney Farm, are places indissolubly linked to the history of Cuba.

    Cayo Granma and Baconao Park (Biosphere Reserve) also part of the attractiveness of this region. As a tourist destination, Santiago de Cuba, combines excellent possibilities for the enjoyment of beaches, city and nature tourism for to the places of interest in those three scenarios.

    For those who arrive in Santiago de Cuba, there are diverse lodging options in the city and in its surroundings, linked as much to the sea as to nature. With a variety of categories and levels of comfort, it will always be a guarantee for the visitors looking for harmony and soothing rest. There are other things, among so many, that make people from Santiago proud: to be the birthplace, par excellence, of almost all the musical genres of Cuba, a country where the music is soul and root; also, the carnivals that every month of July take place here, are the most spectacular in the country; as well as their rum, the well-known Fiestas del Fuego and the already traditional Festival of the Caribbean.

    The region of Santiago de Cuba has the necessary infrastructure to encourage tourism of events and congresses; it also has in its mountainous and seafaring environment the conditions to develop nature and adventure tourism, trekking, nautical activities, and health tourism. But there is nothing better than walk its undulating and narrow streets loaded with history and music at the same time.

      Cespedes Park
      The Parque Cespedes is made up of Constitution Square, the parade area and the former main square, and is home to a life-sized bronze image of the Father of Cuba, Carlos Manuel Cespedes. A favourite meeting place for locals, Parque Cespedes is surrounded by the city's finest colonial mansions and is a very appealing place to hang out, sit on a bench and enjoy the traditional Cuban street life passing by. Notable landmarks around the Parque Cespedes include the Casa de la Cultura Miguel Matamoros, the Casa de Diego Velazquez and the Catedral de Nuestra Senora de la Asuncion.

      “Just a tiny little square ”
      Actually nothing special, no need to stay there more than 10 minutes. So nothing more to say about it. Have a look at the houses around, that's why we came there

      “Not bad but nothing special ”
      A lot of beggars around-mostly women- and the square cannot be compared with the other Plazas of havana and Trinidad. Drink a coffee in the hotel facing the square if it is evening and heads elswhere.

      “A must visit ”
      This square contains most of the main tourist attractions in Santiago. Unfortunately the cathedral was undergoing renovations at the time of our visit. However, there were still enough attractions around the park to make our visit worthwhile.

      “Beautifully restored square ”
      The heart of the city of Santiago. The Parque Cespedes is surrounded by buildings that have been beautifully done up. Especially the ayuntamiento looks lovely in it's bright white with blue woodwork finishings. When in Santiago you will no doubt visit this centre of the town.

      “A social centre ”
      Liked the Cuban families and their friends who would gather at the park to sit in the sun or socialize. Liked the professional bands with dancers in costume. Disliked the beggars and the incessant drumming a few people did on tin pots which became quite irritating after a few hours!

      An excellent view over Santiago and a historical place where American and Cuban soldiers defeated the Spanish and ended four centuries of Spanish dominance in the Latin Americas.

      “Lots of History Here ”
      We had a great time exploring the city and enjoyed visiting this main square. Lots of historical buildings to see and the streets lead down to the water where you can explore the market areas and buy some of the nice Cuban woodworking items. At the end of our tour we visited a nice old hotel in the square and... More
