Take an excursion through the peculiar Yunque de Baracoa mountain and enjoy its lush nature

El Yunque

El Yunque is a mountain that is 10 km from Baracoa, Cuba, located in a protected area. This formation, which can be seen from anywhere in the city, is part of the Cuchillas del Toa biosphere, acquiring the category of outstanding natural element. With a height of 560 meters, it is characterized because its top is flattened due to erosion, which is why Christopher Columbus described it as a working anvil to hit metals.

El Yunque
In addition to Taino archaeological remains due to the settlement of indigenous groups, the Yunque area is home to a rich variety of fauna and flora, which has resulted in it being declared a National Monument in 1979.
Do not miss the opportunity to explore one of the most characteristic mountains of the eastern part of Cuba and admire the exotic landscape it contains.
