New tourist options in eastern Cuba
Eastern Cuba has designed new options to boost the tourist industry, as part of a policy aimed at developing the fastest-growing sector in the Caribbean Island's economy.
In that regard, Cuba's easternmost province, Guantánamo, offers a rich cultural wealth contributed by French immigrants who arrived in the island nation in the early 19th century.
In Guantánamo, tourists can visit Baracoa, the first village founded by the Spanish conquistadors during their colonization of the Caribbean Island.
Guantánamo is also famous for its sea, mountains and rivers, which create a breathtakingly beautiful natural scenario.
Access to Baracoa through La Farola viaduct, one of the seven wonders of civil engineering in Cuba, becomes a major attraction for both foreign and Cuban visitors.
