CULTURE CAPITAL

Kryssning till Santiago de Cuba, Cuba

Santiago de Cuba is the island’s second-largest city— but it’s second to none when it comes to one-of-a-kind adventures. This is where Bacardi rum was first produced and Son Cubano music sounded its first rhythms. This romantic city distinguishes itself from the rest of Cuba with a vibrant mixture of architecture and Afro-Cuban culture you have to experience first-hand. Walk the 100-year-old Padre Pico Steps to the old French quarter of Tivoli and stand before the graves of national heroes in Santa Ifigenia Cemetery. Or visit the Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción, which was completed in 1922 and is one of the city’s most famous landmarks.

ROMANCING THE COBBLESTONES

ROMANCING THE COBBLESTONES

Step out for a walk through bustling Parque Cespedes, one of the city’s main plazas. Admire colonial City Hall and see the ancient Casa Velazquez mansion. Take a snapshot of the Baroque cathedral— and get lost in the romantic melodies of live music splayed throughout Santiago’s lively streets.

HOLD THE FORT

HOLD THE FORT

Behold Castillo de San Pedro de la Roca del Morro, a UNESCO World Heritage Site sitting high above Santiago harbor. Explore its time-worn walls while learning about its defensive legacy during pirate times and the Spanish-American War. Then hear the cannons fire at sunset.

COLLECTING MEMORIES

Spend the day browsing one of Santiago’s celebrated museums. See weapons and paintings owned by rum magnate Emilio Bacardí y Moreau at the Bacardí Museum. Enter the oldest house still standing in Cuba at the Museo de Ambiente Histórico Cubano— or marvel at festive floats in the Museo del Carnaval.

LOCAL CUISINE

Local restaurants offer multi-course Comida Criollo menus, and authentic dishes can also be enjoyed in family homes, served by private paladares. Try Cuban staples like ropa vieja (stewed beef) and tostones (fried plantain patties). Sip rocio con gallo (coffee with rum) or a milkshake at the legendary La Arboleda. Top it off with minty mojitos at a rooftop bar overlooking the city.

SHOPPING

Stroll along Calle Heredia for ebony sculptures, carnival masks, papier-mâché dolls and jewelry. Stop in Barra de Ron Caney for Cuban-made rum or neighboring Casa del Habano for cigars. Señor Aldo sells books about Cuba’s history, while CDs by Santiaguero son musicians are sold in stores scattered throughout town.
