Provincias de Holguín y Guantánamo (Baracoa)

Alejandro de Humboldt National Park

The Alejandro de Humboldt National Park is of the most important places for the preservation of the endemic flora of the region. The name of the park is an homage of the German Alejandro de Humboldt, an important scientist who went all over the island in the 19th century, achieving the title of Cuba’s Second Discoverer. It covers the provinces of Guantánamo and Holguín, in the northeastern region of the country with an extension of 10,680 hectares. This Park was declared World Heritage in 2001 and is one of the mountainous richest endemic ecosystems in the world. The landscapes of the area are typical and at the same time unique in the country, showing contrasts between the mountains of Sagua-Baracoa, with the vegetation of tropical humid forests. The park has camping places, accommodations, guided routes and high qualified staff to solve any doubt or problem of the visitors. 64 species of birds have been reported in its fauna, out of which 12 are endemic, which makes this area very appropriate for their observation. The region represents the last habitat of the Royal Woodpecker, and among mammals, one of the last ones for Almiques. Here we can also find one of the most beautiful species of snails in the world: The Polymita. Enjoy the forest, rivers, puddles and waterfalls in a rainy environment which create an incomparable landscape. A real treasure you cannot miss on your trip to the Eastern side of Cuba.

Carretera a Santa Rosa, Mabujabo, Baracoa

Duaba Farm

An ideal place in the countryside to experience nature, the rural lifestyle and the fascinating world of cocoa, an opportunity to learn in depth about Baracoa's deeply rooted cocoa. A tour takes you past mango and coconut trees as well as coffee and cocoa crops. There are educational trails where the plants of cocoa are displayed and the entire traditional growing, harvesting and processing methods used by local farmers are shown. You'll also visit a typical bohío, or peasant's hut, where staff members actually live. A rustic restaurant serves typical dishes from the Baracoan cuisine and chocolate based preparations. 

Municipio de Maisí. Guantánamo

Punta de Maisí

The place is characterized by a lighthouse, known as La Concha, which dates from 1861 and from where, going up to its 144 steps, you can admire some impressive views. Its construction was authorized by the Queen of Spain and  began the construction of the lighthouse at Punta de Maisi in 1857, under the leadership of the Commander Engineer, Don Mariano Moreno. In the area you can enjoy the magnificent Maisí Terraces. Of the 24 emerged ones, some reach the height of 460 meters above the sea level; while in the underground levels can reach a depth of 180 meters. On cloudless days you will have the chance of sighting Haiti, located 70 kilometer far from Punta de Maisí Top. You can also relax in the best white sand beach that you will find below the lighthouse.

Calle Martí y El Malecón, Baracoa

Fuerte Matachín

One of Baracoa's three fortresses, Fuerte Matachín, was completed in 1802. In 1868 it became a guard post of the Spanish army for the recognition and registry of all those entering and departing from the city. After the installation of the pseudo-Republic, it was used firstly as a bastion against the pirates and later was used by the Spanish as a prison. Today it houses the Museo Histórico Matachín, whose displays discuss the city's history, including its Taíno roots. There are examples of Taíno pottery, sculpture, and other artifacts; exhibits on famous citizens; and displays explaining the community's role in the wars for independence and the Revolution.
