Baracoa is a hidden gem in the mountains of the Guantánamo province. The First City of Cuba founded by the Spanish in 1511, has preserved a little more its aboriginal and Caribbean roots.

With the establishment of the Spanish in cities further to the west of the island, Baracoa was further removed from European influence, thus preserving a way of life closer to its aboriginal origin. Even today, they use many ingredients in their kitchen that are rare in the west of the country, such as coconut oil and cocoa.

Its exuberant landscapes, rivers, beaches, mountains, cocoa and coffee plantations, its people and simple and colorful village, are worth a visit of at least 3 days.
