  • Description Interesting Places: Cajobabo Beach, Guantanamo. Cuba

    This beach became a place of historical value on April 11th of 1895 when the National Hero José Martí landed in the area in order to join the fight for independence waged by the Mambi Army against the Spanish colonialism. To tour this area in the eastern-most province of Guantánamo is to retrace the path of Cuba’s Apostle up to his fall in mortal combat, an event that happened on May 19th of 1895 in the place known as Two Rivers (Dos Ríos). The Dominican patriot Máximo Gómez also landed together with Martí, who kissed the sands in a gesture of respect towards the land that always considered him as one of its sons. Marcos del Rosario, one of the crew from the boat, retraced the place on April 23rd of 1922, and identified the specific point of landing where a monument was raised in 1947. This difficult to reach place treasures enough merits to be hailed as a National Monument.

  • Cajobabo Beach is located in 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
