Flights to Baracoa

Book flights to Baracoa

Baracoa is a remote city located on the eastern tip of Cuba. Founded by Diego Velázquez de Cuellar in 1511, it's the oldest Spanish settlement in Cuba. The city is surrounded by the Sierra del Purial mountain range, which creates a unique climate with high levels of rainfall. This rainfall makes the region lush and green, perfect for growing coffee and cocoa. The surrounding mountains also isolate Baracoa, which means it has a slower pace of life compared to other parts of Cuba.
