The botanical garden of Holguin is situated on the street to Mirador de Mayabe. The cacti are located in the greenhouse and in the outside exhibition of approx 50 m2. The so-called greenhouse, rather the shieldhouse, contains few plants out of condition. The plant pot with three plants of Escobaria cubensis and some plants of the genus Melocactus without cephalium do not represent a majority of the plants of Cuba.
