- Destination: Matanzas

Located in the outskirts of the city of Matanzas, The Yumurí valley offers one of the most spellbinding views in Cuba. There are many lookout points in the mountains (150 m) that surround the valley, interrupted only towards the west. However, the best perspective of the Valley can be seen from the viewpoint at the Bacunayagua Bridge (the highest in the country and considered one of the seven wonders of Cuban engineering) from where the splendor of the valley can bee fully appreciated. There are ecotourism trails in the valley that lead to an old native settlement, a flower farm and to a cove on the mouth of the Bacunayagua River, where tourists can enjoy a refreshing swim.
