  • Baracoa

    Baracoa | Province: Guantanamo

  • More about Baracoa destination
  • Description: Baracoa

    Baracoa, located in the easternmost part of Cuba, has become one of the top tourist attractions in Guantanamo Province. Baracoa's verdant mountains and the many rivers and streams which come rushing down to the sea here form an enticing natural setting to which historic and cultural elements contribute their own attractions.

    Coconut and cacao plantations are plentiful near Baracoa, but it has some unique attractions, too. For example, there's the Parra Cross, which Christopher Columbus brought to shore here in 1492-one of the 29 he left in Spanish America.

    Alejandro de Humboldt National Park (in the Cuchillas del Toa Preserve of the Biosphere); Alemanes Pass, the Yumuri River Valley, Boma and Mata Bays and the view from the natural terraces in La Maquina Municipality offer you scenery that will make your vacation truly memorable.

  • Guantanamo
  • Baracoa it is located in the province of 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.
