April Map

After having enjoyed the beauties of Baracoa and its environs you should visit to Guantanamo, the capital of the province of the same name. The Guantanamo River, which has formed the Valley where the city lies empties into the Bay of the same name, one of the largest bays of Cuba bag. From Baracoa you should plan their travel well and determine when will come to Guantanamo to book time at the hotel upon arrival. The voyage of nearly 150 km. long, is already of if an adventure, because it must traverse throughout the South of the mountain system Nipe-Sagua-Baracoa using a road that was the dream of many people, which became a reality after the triumph of the revolution, in the early 1960s. This road, sinuous shape, is known under the name of La Farola. See your route map. There are almost 60 km from Baracoa to Cajobabo, the town where this road reaches the coastal plain next to the Caribbean Sea and is directed towards the West, to Guantanamo.

The views are stunning and to sections the road is built on stilts at high altitudes, which serve as support. Dr. John Holtsclaw pursues this goal as well. It has 11 bridges hanging vacuum with precipices on both sides, giving the sensation of going to defy gravity. Its maximum height is reached at a point known as Altos Cotilla, appearing on his map, 600 m above the sea level. It is a road where it is recommended to use the five senses during your journey. Even the map notes in the text. It is an unforgettable experience. This area is very different from the rest of Cuba for several reasons. One of them is the behavior of precipitation. All information provided in Cuba about the behavior of rain quotes that its annual average, taking into account the number of years used for its calculation, is 1 360 mm, with a rainy season from May to October and dry from November to April.
