Holguin is located in the eastern part of the country, with an area of 9300 km2. To the north, we find the Atlantic Ocean, south the provinces of Granma and Santiago de Cuba and Las Tunas on west. Holguin has 350 kms of coastline with many beautiful beaches and bays such as Gibara, Banes and Nipe, which is the largest in Cuba.

This is the third most important tourist attraction of Cuba. Although Holguin is traditionally an agricultural region, it is now a major industrial area of Cuba. Holguin represents over 20% of exports to the country. It is also the production of sugar and citrus. The fishing industry is important in this region of Cuba.
