Baracoa was the first Spanish settlement in Cuba and as such, also the first capital of the country. Caused from its secluded location and being only accessibly by water until the 1960s, Baracoa has a very unique charm and culture. In its historic center, there is a lot of French influence, seen through the architecture. Additionally, there are great sites such as the El Yunque mountain, Parque Independencia, and the Playa Maguana beach.
