Baracoa, declared National Monument, is a quiet colonial city. It is enclosed between mountainous massifs with great endemic vegetation profusion, which turn the place in an exotic spot with crystalline rivers and welcoming beaches.

The city of Baracoa is the oldest one in Cuba, since it was the first village founded by Diego Velázquez in 1511, under the name of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Baracoa.
