Rio Duaba Crossing Point
The “Yunque de Baracoa”, is one of the landmark features that most impressed Christopher Columbus during his first explorations along the Northern coast of the island. At its base, the Campismo cabanas are located. There the visitors get in direct touch with the wild life discovered for the New World by the Genoese Admiral.
Surrounded by luxuriant vegetation, among coconut trees and cocoa plantations, banana, guava and mango trees, you find this fascinating place, located next to the calm waters of the Duaba River, inviting you to a refreshing swim during the dry season. A top spot for Nature and Adventure tourism, with trekking and hiking. Additionally, for those who wish to learn about the locals, nearby there is a small community dedicated to the coconut and cocoa agriculture.
The first villa founded in the Island, the mystic Baracoa city, lies only twelve kilometers away from the base. There, in the ancient Cathedral, you may watch America´s oldest relic: the Parra cross, brought here by Christopher Columbus to mark his way through Porto Santo, the tiny bay that he gave name to during his first visit to the Island.
