Santiago de Cuba has plenty of entertainment for all tastes



If you want to hear music, Casa de las Tradición, where Cuba's best musicians improvise, and if you like good food, the Paladan Salón Tropical offers a hearty sampling of local cuisine. You can admire the Fern Garden, which has an exhibit of 90 species of orchids and 350 species of ferns. The quiet Tivoli district, perhaps the most impressive in Cuba in terms of architecture, allows you to enjoy musical improvisations by fine ensembles, singers and soloists. Friday evenings are entirely dedicated to the musicians of the Nova Trová movement, the musicians in the style of Nico Saquito.
