The overlapping of greens and blues from the ocean, sky and surrounding wooded areas in this corner of Holguin is so dazzling that it was named Playa Esmeralda. Nearby is the area which Christopher Columbus described as the most beautiful land ever beheld by human eyes. The beach is protected by large coral formations, escarpments, cliffs and lush tropical shade vegetation. Meliá Cuba hotels in Holguín convey the subtle essence of this privileged region. A world apart for living a fabulous and exciting holiday in Cuba.
