Imagine a spot on the remote northeastern corner of Cuba with an unspoiled colonial village. Now imagine it surrounded by virgin rain forests, secluded sand beaches and crystal blue waters. You have just imagined Baracoa Cuba.
There isn’t a question when cruising to Cuba the cruise lines will not try and visit this magnificent port. It is what everyone imagines in a Caribbean village. Cobblestone streets lined by one story buildings painted in the Caribbean colors we all know so well. Now imagine chocolate! Yes, chocolate! Baracoa, where cocoa trees thrive is known for it’s white chocolate! Overlooking the beach is a statue of Christopher Columbus carved out of a giant tree stump.
But it is the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Cuchillas de Toa that will take your breath away. With Pine Forests, Cloud Forests, mangroves and coral reefs it is on of the world’s last untouched rainforests.
