Mirador de Bacunayagua (Bacunayagua lookout)

This lookout is located on the main road (called Via Blanca) between Varadero and Havana. From the mirador you can see the Bacunayagua Bridge crossing a deep canyon over the splendid Yumuri valley; it’s the highest bridge in Cuba, 110 meters (361 feet) above the valley floor. The bridge used to divide the Havana and Matanzas provinces, but after the reorganisation of the provinces in 2010, it now divides the Matanzas province and the new Mayabeque province.

You’ll find there an observation deck, several souvenirs kiosks, a restaurant, and a bar serving delicious Pina Coladas made from freshly squeezed pineapple juice and coconut, the barman will hand you the rum bottle so you can decide how strong you prefer to drink it!

The Mirador de Bacunayagua has become the most popular stopover when traveling between Havana and Varadero.
