Cuba fuera de los destinos habituales
Se podría pensar que un viaje a Cuba es en sí unas vacaciones fuera del turismo habitual, pero todavía es posible ir más allá al visitar uno de estos destinos únicos en Cuba. Consiga lo imposible: escape de las multitudes turísticas y conquiste un poco de Cuba únicamente para su disfrute en una auténtica experiencia en los pueblos más pequeños.
Up until the 60s, Baracoa was one of the most remote areas of Cuba with no roads or railways connecting it to anywhere else in the country. While today paved roads do reach its borders, the old town still remains one of Cuba's best off the beaten path destinations.
The long journey from Santiago de Cuba to Baracoa passes through Guantanamo, then along beautiful stretches of the southeast coastline and up into the hills via twisting switchbacks. It is one of the most epic road trips in Cuba and sets the pace for your time in the town.
From the lively plazas in the centre of town up to the summit of El Yunque and into the historic caves of Cuba's aboriginal population, Baracoa is full of surprises.
Along a spectacularly clear bay, beside one of the largest protected nature reserves in Cuba, two beautiful beaches provide the perfect base for nature adventures on land and sea. With swamp forests, mangroves, and healthy coral reefs, this is one of Cuba's most biodiverse regions.
Playa Larga sits at the top of the Bay of Pigs, with easy access to Ciénaga de Zapata National Park. Playa Giron lies further south with some of Cuba’s best dive sites and reefs just off shore. Share your time between the two and you’ll be constantly bowled over by Cuba’s natural beauty.
This is a relatively quiet area of the Cuban coast with simple Casa Particulars over all-inclusive resorts. It’s a little laidback luxury in one of the country’s most stunning off the beaten track locations.
