Puente de Bacunayagua, Matanzas
(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Puente de Bacunayagua stands as Cuba's longest and highest bridge and marks the border between the Havana and Matanzas provinces. The design is an ingenious example of Cuban civil engineering due to the unconventional terrain on which it was built. The bridge stretches 314 m (1,030 ft) over a lush green mountain valley and stands 103 m (338 m) tall. Take in views of the Valle del Yumuri and the sea, and marvel at birds flying even lower then the bridge itself, and wild palms appearing as tiny shrubbery. Have some food at the bridge restaurant, a favorite stopping point for tour buses and taxis.

  • Beautiful vantage point. Pity that the shuttle vans do not stop to take pictures, really spectacular is the combination of the landscape

  • A quick stop off here when I was travelling from Havana and well worth it to see such stunning views.
