  • Description: Guantanamo

    Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Baracoa, was the name given by Spaniards to the first village founded in Cuba in 1512, next to the Macaguanigua River. The Cruz de la Parra (Parra Cross)is shown to the visitors as a memory from those times.

    Since it suffered violent raids from pirates due to its relative development and accumulation of wealth, the authorities ordered to establish a series of fortifications and artillery in the place. Such it is the case of Matachín (current Municipal Museum of Baracoa), Morrillo Chico, La Punta and Seboruco fortresses; as well as the Castillo de la Villa, which is a comfortable hotel today. Baracoa is located in the eastern most province of the country: Guantánamo, known worldwide by the song Guantanamera, a musical composition that identifies our country composed by Joseito Fernández. The Capital of Cocoa, as is also named, is escorted by a hill known as El Yunque (Anvil) an entire symbol of the place most and it comprises areas identified as those of the greatest biodiversity of the insular Caribbean and one of the best preserved places of Cuba.

    The area is mainly mountainous with the presence of beaches, rivers and alluvial valleys that extend toward the coast. In this region there is the Cuchillas del Toa, a Reserve of the Biosphere that was proclaimed World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987, with its fundamental core in Alejandro de Humboldt National Park, site of a varied flora and fauna that offers the charm of discovering its beauty and landscapes. Its more authentic products are those elaborated with cocoa and coconut. Its residents will be seen navigating along the rivers that run along the territory in cayucas –a wooden typical craft, of flat bottom, used for fishing in the coast and transportation of agricultural goods, working the lands or in their forest tasks, since it is the richest timber area in the island. In the Primate Village of Cuba is typical the traditional atmosphere, the sea that skirts it on the north, its ancient defensive little castles and the condition of a city isolated to the world, between waters and forests, with people capable of offering the best reception

  • Guantanamo
  • Guantánamo is the eastern most province of Cuba. Its capital is also called Guantánamo. Other towns include Baracoa. The province has the only land border of the important U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay. Guantánamo's architecture and culture is unlike the rest of Cuba. The province is only 80 kilometres (50 mi) away from Haiti at its closest point, across the Windward Passage (close enough to see lights on Haiti on a clear night). Guantánamo also has a high number of immigrants from Jamaica. Many buildings are comparable to those of the French Quarter of New Orleans in the U.S. stateof Louisiana.

    The Nipe-Sagua-Baracoa mountains dominate the province, dividing both climate and landscape. The northern coast, battered by prevailing winds, is the wettest part of the country, while the south, sheltered and dry, is the hottest. The north is characterized by rainforests, while the south is arid and has many cacti. The province of Guantánamo is the Eastern one in Cuba. It is characterized by having a mountain surface which provoked the isolation of the rest of the island for more than four centuries.

    Known by the establishment of the US Naval Base in the village of Caimanera in 1902, this beautiful land counts with great impressive places where you can enjoy an unforgettable holidays. The location of the place has promoted the characterization of the province by its beautiful virgin beaches such as Playa Duaba Beach, Playa Nibujon Beach or Playa Maguana Beach; well-preserved natural reservations such as the Alejandro de Humboldt, Boca de Yumurí or the Yunque National Parks, and the cities founded by the Spanish such is the colonial city of Baracoa and Guantánamo.

    The colonial city of Baracoa is the most visited one, standing out its fortresses which surround it as the Matachín Fort, the Punta Fort or the Seboruco Castle. Currently, the communication infrastructures are good in this province, since it counts with two airports and an important road with the Farola Viaduct, a true engineering work.

    Visit one of the most famous unknown areas of Cuba and discover its absorbing history and the beauty of its nature which is part of its spot.
