Cuba: Baracoa

Visit Us

This alluring historical town is found off the beaten track on Cuba's south-eastern tip.  Columbus was charmed by the area's beauty when he arrived here in 1492 and it became the island's first colonial settlement twenty years later.

It's a lively place - full of local atmosphere and character. The surrounding countryside is verdant and tropical, and dominated by the tabletop mountain of El Yunque.

What our experts say

The highlight of my stay at Baracoa included a visit to a cocoa farm and chocolate factory. After trying the hot chocolate  - which was so nice we stayed for a second cup  - we headed to Rio Toa, Cuba’s largest river.  We stopped at a shady spot with a nice thatched place to have lunch sitting out overlooking the river. A traditional Cuban stew with delicious Tao river shrimps was served is a bamboo dish.  We ordered, then set off on a boat trip where we swam in the cool waters and enjoyed the surrounding countryside, thick with tropical trees and vibrating with birdsong.
