Near the easternmost tip of Cuba, quaint little Baracaoa can claim to be Cuba's oldest town. It was founded nearly 500 years ago, the first of the seven settlements created by the Spanish conquistadors when they began their colonisation of the island. Screened by mountains and built around a traditional plaza, it is a sleepy place where something of the intriguing mood of old Cuba still lingers. Watching over it is a series of old forts, one now an interesting museum of local history. Cuba itself offers 2,000 miles of tropical coastline, 300 beaches, clear seas and lush mountain interior.
