Learn Spanish in Cuba's second city, Santiago de Cuba. Nestled between the foothills of the Sierra Maesta Mountains and the Caribbean ocean, Santiago de Cuba is a vibrant and vivacious city with a population of 490,000 inhabitants. The combination of African, French and Spanish influence is what has helped to shape Santiago's unique identity as a centre of culture, and what makes it such a fascinating environment in which to learn Spanish today. There is a lot to see and do in Santiago de Cuba, from visiting its museums to enjoying its numerous attractive bars and restaurants typical of Cuba's southern region.
