Hello ! My husband and I are travelling to Cuba in November this year. We like to wlak/hike while we are on holiday. We usually walk between 5-10 miles on an "outing". we are doing a two centre trip. Week 1 we are staying at Holguin, at Hotel Sol Rio de Lunes y Mares and week 2 we are staying at Hotel Malia in Santiago de Cuba. The question i would like to ask is: Will it be possible for us to get out on our own and complete some walks/hikes? Can anyone suggest places to visit or how easy we could buy maps of the area or have any books been published with local walks in? Thanks in advance for your help. Dora.
