Santiago de Cuba

Santiago de Cuba has taken almost as much influence from Haiti and the Dominican Republic as it has from Havana, distilling a concoction of cultures to create a city with a distinct identity. Fast-paced, hot, and sticky, the city splits opinions with Cubans and international visitors, with it seeming relentless or thriving, dangerous or passionate, polluted or lively depending on who you ask. An acquired taste perhaps, but its cultural and political relevance cannot be denied, with a young Fidel Castro beginning his nationalist Revolution here, and a wealth of popular Cuban musical styles said to have developed first in Santiago de Cuba. The downtown historical attractions of Santiago de Cuba include colonial architecture, monumental squares and sculptures, and a scattering of museums.
