Taxi trip to Holguin

We are going to Hotel Playa Pesquero in early December and wanted to go to Holguin for a day. Any suggestions on how to arrange this and what it might cost? We are going with 3 children, 12, 9 and 20 months old, so I am thinking I will stay at the resort with the baby and my husband will take the older boys.

Thank you!

Taxis are right outside the lobby. I don't remember the price.

nothing much in Holguin for your kids to do.... might be a wasted day. Taxi will be about $60 for the day, 3 hours in a car and about 2 hours to tour the city.

It should run about $60 CUCs return. I agree with post 2-not much for the kids to see. There is a bus that leaves the resorts around 9 ish every morning for a trip to Holguin. As I recall, it returns around 1:30. The cost is $15 CUC per person. Are you aware of the Hop-on Hop-off bus that goes to the Guardalavaca craft market? $5 CUC per person.

Flora check this website http://cubaguider.com you will find Yuri is highly recommended here on TA and apparently according to at least one review, a great babysitter as well; no need for you to stay at the hotel.

Thank you all for the replies! I will check the website.

I just wanted the kids to look around, not necessarily for entertainment purposes, but to see a different country.

I think Holguin is worth a visit just to see a Cuban city...stop at an ice cream place or food/drink place on the pedestrian street or on the main square and people watch....check out some of the non touristy stores to see what Cubans are buying...it's worth walking around the main square as well as the nearby square with the church.

As an alternative take a taxi to the seaside town of Gibara which is one of the more scenic towns in Cuba. It has a lot of history and is great to explore.
