Baracoa is an incredible little town which lies on the Bay of Honey, where Christopher Columbus landed in Cuba on his first voyage. It is the oldest Spanish settlement in Cuba and was the island's first capital.
Surrounded by a wide mountain range, the city is quite isolated, and for centuries was only accessible by sea.
Once viewed as a showcase of the Cuban revolution, a mountain road built in the 1960's, connecting the city to Guantanamo (only never to be maintained since).
Even today, the town doesn't feel overrun by tourists and maintains a unique and original charm they will make you want to return again and again.
