The hotel group Cubanacán has 340 rooms for the progress of this modality, belonging to the hotels Ordoño and Arsenita, in the coastal town of Gibara and the Caballeriza hotel, in the Cuban city of parks.
An investment project for the development of city tourism in the province includes high-value heritage properties, such as the Hotel Plaza Colón, also in Gibara, in addition to the Esmeralda and the Saratoga, in Holguín. The latter, with 32 rooms belonging to the Encanto hotels chain, a building of eclectic style, considered a landmark for Holguin architecture.
