Great to watch Cubans do what they can do best, dance!! But don't expect comfort, this is all about music

during the day the café outside is great for people watching. everybody in Holguin passes by at least once a day. During the night inside is great the music, the dancing, the characters. Yes it's safe, use your common sense

This place is primarily a show bar. The Trova show here is usually good, however because this place is a mainstay on the local nightclub circuit for neophyte tourists, it also attracts all the local hard-bitten hustlers and eccentrics. If you are in a tolerant mood and enjoy people watching, this can be a lot of fun. Carefully monitor your... More

The Casa de la Trova on the west side of Parque Calixto Garcia is worth checking out. There is a modest stage, beer is reasonably priced, there is no cover charge, and you get to hear some good local musicians but the sound system is not as good as it should be.

Hi to all, I have tried the restaurant in Holguin De La Trova but I have found it OK. The better restaurant is the 1910. Th food is amazing with making use of local fresh produce at all times. The atmosphere is great and the staff the most friendly people you could wish to meet. Beware though the portions are... More

The Trova is a gem, great music and a real cool setting. Just be aware of where you are, and who else may be there (hint - if someone is just too nice to you, and speaks far too much english (a Cuban), it likely is not for positive reasons. Great bartenders.

Lively music with a very engaging Cuban group but went on too long. The group was great with engaging the audience, getting them to participate but should know when to stop - like after 45 minutes when everyone's eyes started glazing over? But great atmosphere in an art deco building.

During my stay in Holguin I was not a huge fan of this place. It is a small bar/patio area with usually, live muscians where people can sit and have a beer and stare at everyone that walks by. The reason why I don't like it is because it is too crowded inside (especailly at night), it gets VERY hot... More
