  • Moa it is located in the province of Holguin.

    Holguín is one of the provinces of Cuba, the third most populous after Havana and Santiago de Cuba. It lies in the southeast of the country. Its major cities include Holguín (the capital), Banes, Antilla, Mayarí, and Moa. The province has a population of slightly over one million people. Its territory exceeds 9,300 km2 (3,600 sq mi), 25 percent of which are covered by forest. Christopher Columbus landed in what is believed to have been today's Holguín province on October 27, 1492. He declared that it was "the most beautiful country human eyes had ever seen". The Holguín province was established in 1978, when it was split from the Oriente region. Like much of Cuba, Holguín's economy is based around sugarcane, though other crops such as corn and coffee, as well as mining, are also large earners for the province.

    A large cobalt processing plant with shipping facilities was built at Moa, using foreign investment, much of it from Canada. Chromium, nickel, iron and steel plants dot the province as well. The province of Holguín is the third biggest one in Cuba and as the years go by it has become one of the main industrial areas of the island. The beauty of its fields and beaches has turned this province into the third touristic pole of the country. Holguín covers lengthwise the different municipalities which compose it imposing natural parks, such as the Cristóbal Colón Natural Park which, at the same time, hosts perfect natural enclosure for the ecotourism as it can be the Bariay National Monument or the Naranjo Bay Park.

This charming Villa hosts each year the Cine Pobre Film Festival, one of the most awaited Gibarense events.

    Other important places are the Finca Mayabe Ranch or La Loma de la Cruz Hill, both close to Holguín. Another important areas are the ones of Birán, birth city of Fidel and Raúl Castro Ruz; or Banes, also known as the archeological capital of Cuba, which counts with imposing archeological remains and with perfect natural spaces to get in touch with nature.

You can also visit the Green Reservation Playa de Caletones Beach, in which salty natural pools have created due to old landslides from some galleries.
