Traditions & Customs of Santiago de Cuba


Santiago de Cuba is the most Caribbean of the Cuban cities. This is due to the geographic location, but also to its human origins, a blend of Spanish, African and French origins and many more Haitians, Jamaicans, Guadalupeños and Martiniqueses than in any other place of the island. We can’t talk about Santiago de Cuba without mentioning the carnivals, the trova, the proclamation and its rum, a symbol of the Caribbean culture.
