Description Areas of Natural Interest: Yumuri River, Baracoa. Cuba
To go near the spot in which the Yumuri river is about to go out to the sea and go to the top of the Elevator hill to watch its estuary is an unforgettable sight. A beautiful view can be seen from the bridge over the estuary of this river that flows between two mountains, but even more overwhelming is to row a boat. The world here seems like an actual paradise where everything remained untouched like in the dawn of times.

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.
