El Yunque Parque Nacional Alejandro de Humboldt

in Baracoa
  • El Yunque Parque Nacional Alejandro de Humboldt in Baracoa - Cuba
Location :
Bacacoa Municipality, Guantánamo Province
If you’re an independent-minded traveller seeking somewhere a little different, then Baracoa is perfect. Just getting to Baracoa is its own adventure, as you ascend from Guantánamo via a mountain road with nerve-racking twists and turns. Hike to the summit of the dramatic flat-topped formation that overlooks the city known as El Yunque, or the anvil. Enjoy the ecotourism of the wild eastern shore in the nearby Parque Nacional Alejandro de Humboldt where you’ll find the colored snails that are unique to the region. We think that its unmatched ecosystem is a must see, and UNESCO agrees, dubbing it “one of the most biologically diverse tropical island sites on earth.” When your legs are sore from hiking, relax with a lovely sightseeing trip from Baracoa Boat trips up the Río Yumurí.
