Eastern Cuba: Sun, Mountains and Sea

The leisure and recreational options in Cuba, favored by the strategic location of the Cuban landscape, offer dozens of excellent beaches, impressive mountain areas plus the historical value of the island. For the eastern region, provinces like Camaguey, Ciego de Avila, Holguin, Santiago de Cuba, Granma and Las Tunas have ideal places for taking a time-out. The city of Santiago de Cuba, second largest of the country has the privilege of enjoying its status as capital of the Caribbean, due to its position and centuries-old history. On the outskirts of the city, the Gran Piedra - registered as the largest rock in the world in the book of Guinness - looks majestic and imposing, with nearly 70,000 tons and located about 1,220 meters above the sea level. For Camagüey, the bathing options concentrate on the beach resort Santa Lucia, with a sandy coastal strip of 20 kilometers, warm clear water, and protected by a huge coral reef. Meanwhile, Las Tunas hosts 35 excellent unspoiled beaches in more than 260 kilometers of irregular coasts, with opportunities to appreciate many bird species of Cuban fauna in places like the Bay of Malagueta, besides having the largest reserve of American crocodiles in the Caribbean. Holguin holds within its territory the location of Bariay, first place Genoese admiral Christopher Columbus set foot on Cuban soil, a historical witness of the island's beauty. In addition, coastal areas of singular beauty can be found in Guardalavaca, Esmeralda and Pesquero, along with the options offered by the Bahía de Naranjo Natural Park or the possible encounter with the natives at the archaeological site Chorro de Maita. Granma province stores almost 50 percent of the historical sites on the island, including the city of Bayamo, the second village founded by the Spaniards in 1513 and later declared National. Also, the historic Landing of the Granma Yacht National Park and Sierra Maestra complement the offer for those who love an environment with unique species of flora and fauna, virgin forests and one of the most representative systems of marine karst terraces at national level. Eastern Cuba, with a history of centuries closely followed by visitors to its attractions incorporates the ruins of dozens of French-Haitian coffee plantations established in that territory in the late XVII and early XIX century. About a hundred of these farms are located in Santiago de Cuba, leftovers of a time when the Gaul colonists settled with their customs and culture. As today 32 of those old coffee plantations, developed by the French who fled neighboring Haiti in 1789 after the revolution in that country, are listed in the territory of the equally eastern province of Guantanamo.
