Cuba the Easten Loop

When most people think of Cuba they think about Havana, rum, cigars and the iconic images of classic American cars from the 1950s. Cuba is over 750 miles long and is home to many different subcultures and ecosystems ranging from flat rolling plains, to a chain of coastal keys to towering mountains, rain forests and arid desert regions. Havana is indeed the capital and largest city but on our most recent trip we skipped the more well known regions and headed to the far eastern regions of the Cuban Nation.
We arrived in Santiago de Cuba the country’s 2nd largest city where Fidel Castro’s 1959 revolution took root. While we explored the city and enjoyed a Cuban baseball game we also had the opportunity to travel deep into the mountains, hiked through the rain forest, transversed a beautiful crystal clear river and climbed a series of waterfalls. We then traveled further east to Guantanamo Bay and to the small remote northern coastal town of Baracoa the first Spanish Settlement in Cuba and the location of a cross planted there by Christopher Columbus. While many things reminded us of our visit to the western parts of Cuba these areas were unique in their own ways.
