There are so many reasons for going to this area of Cuba. Planning your Holguin excursions is something that you should think about ahead of time.
This way you will have a general idea on what there is to do. During your orientation when you arrive to the hotel you will then be able to make a better informed decision. Even more important if you are planning a Destination Wedding and would like your group to do a day trip together you need to know what is available.
For any groups I recommend if you have a personal Destination Wedding website for your guests to refer to. Set up a poll with three or 4 choices and have your guests complete the poll. Then when you are at the destination you do not have to have everyone debate on what to do. (Saves more time for fun at the beach!) If you have more than 10 people try to negotiate a better price (group rate), it may work! It depends on the tour and the person that you are dealing with.
Use this list as a general guideline, any pricing listed is not guaranteed and may have changed.
This nature park has so much to offer, you will experience wildlife and flora in a free natural setting. Upon arrival you will receive a welcome drink, enjoy a 1 hour jeep tour. Time to enjoy the beach and if you would like there is snorkeling available for an extra fee. If you would rather explore than you can go horseback riding, this feature is not included in your package but available for a fee.
Lunch buffet is included with a drink in your package. You can get to Cayo Saetia either by helicopter or by jeep (you will stop and see interesting things along the way). There is an overnight option for this excursion, see your local representative for pricing.
