Surrounded by the Sierra del Purial, Baracoa lies between luxuriant tropical vegetation and the sea, and until the 1960s, was only accessible by boat. This isolation has given it a unique character, where legends and magic are commonplace. The town is situated at the foot of El Yunque, a mountain with a plateau summit. The beaches in the bay make for an idyllic coastline.
