    I LOVED going to El Yunque. We are not normally an outdoorsy family. We also have a daughter with physical limitations. She cannot walk long distance. We went early and went to La Coca Falls. We parked to look at it, and ended up climbing the rocks to get closer to the falls. It was a LOT of fun. The, we climbed Yokahú tower. It wasn't too difficult. Last we did the five minute trail at Juan Diego Creek. We had fun at the waterfall and took some fun pictures. Very accessible for people not in shape. :)

    I was there just for an hour and liked it, but be aware of the annoying vendors and beggars. Also don't leave your stuff unattended.

    This is a well-preserved church with stained glass window and a piece of one of the crosses that Christopher Columbus left in Cuba. Visit or attend worship services.

    Take a boat up river, we saw some interesting birds and even two snakes. The beach is rugged but beautiful...

    A bit hard to find - but ask the locals, they will point you in the right direction. Small cave that used to be used as a burial site for the local Taínos (natives that were there before Columbus and his lot exterminated them). There is a bit of written description and the caves different floors don't take long to peruse. The guide in the hut however gets A+ for knowledge about the cave and also about local wildlife species.

    Plenty of shade and benches for use of the public wifi. There are monuments to Natives and settlers telling the history of the area, a lovely church where a remnant of one of the crosses Columbus left. Restaurants, shops, music venues and a department store where you can buy nearly anything and get a glimpse at what might be in a typical Cuban home.

    There are cannon and guard towers in the wall remnants of this old fort with a good view of the water and of El Yunque, a mountain shaped like an anvil. Wonderful photo opportunities.

    We visited Majayara National Park while spending a few days in Baracoa. We were advised to walk along the beach from the baseball stadium which was lovely and took about half an hour. There used to be a footbridge to cross the river near the end of the beach but it was damaged and now there's a ferry service for CUC$1 each way. At the entrance to the park there's a small bar/restaurant and a kiosk to pay the entrance fee. We had a guide to take us to the Mirador, a tough climb but well worth it. After that we went to Playa Blance for a welcome swim. It is a beautiful and unspoilt bay with silver sand and lovely clear water, not to be missed.

    During a beautiful night in Baracoa a 6 man orchestra played nice Salsa, Rumba and Son.
    The street filled with people of many Nationalities. Dancing on the street with top music made this one of the highlights In Baracoa.
