The city where the sun first rises in Cuba emerges closed to the coasts of Santo Domingo like a touching and fanciful entrance to the sea. Quiet close to it, you may find challenging and green mountainous bulks that served as settlement for the first native Indians (aboriginals). The amazing passing of the years has made possible an
increasing development. This district started being by excellence a fishing area.
The ones who practice scuba diving have the privilege of getting into the "Bolsón de la Bahía" (bay) and observe once there, what's left of galleons and ships that lie in the mysterious underwater world without letting anyone take away its more than one hundred secrets.
The material wealth is obtained by different ways. The production of cacao is one of the most outstanding forms. It is precisely here, where best chocolate of the country is produced in big quantities. A mixture of coconut water with honey from the bees , fruits, and sugar help us obtained the "Cucurucho"; indeed, a delicious regional typical sweet. The "Bacán" is a typical food made with dry coconuts, unripe bananas, different types of spices, pork, beef or chicken meat, and a special way of its elaboration that has passed from one generation to another one.
The city is bathed by the trade winds coming from the north. Its yearly average temperature is about 26 C.° ; but we might feel relief when it is too hot because there are eight rivers of deep and crystalline waters such as: The Toa with the greatest volume of water of all with 120- km long . We can also mention the historical Duaba, through which the General Major, Antonio Maceo y Grajales landed in 1895 to fight for the Independence War. Its cultural traditions are never set aside. It's the cradle of painters, handicraftsmen, and sculptors of relevance. It is also the cradle of a great number of musicians who developed different rhythms like the immortal Cuban Son , headed by Elio Revé.
The continuous contact with the past, still living in the present turns the stay in Baracoa into a unique possibility of learning things that won't ever be erased from our minds, since they would go quiet deep into our hearts.
