    Camagüey
    Cuba’s third-largest city, the centrally located Camagüey (read: no beaches) is a maze of narrow streets and colonial architecture.

    Holguín

    Santiago de Cuba
    A musical city on Cuba’s southeast coast. Go for the troubadour scene (formed by members of the Buena Vista Social Club). Carnaval in February is especially festive.
