Puente de Bacunayagua, Matanzas

4.5
#2 of 9 in Sightseeing in Matanzas Province
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • It is an obligatory stop on the road that goes from Havana to Varadero city. the views are spectacular, the bridge rises to 120 meters above the valley floor. Owns a bar where his specialty is the piña coladas, 5 CUC each. It is a stop for tourists.

  • Pina Colada to die for! Really THE BEST! You have to try it! And a beautiful view, of course :)
  • Beautiful view, and awesome pina coladas!
  • The highest bridge in Cuba, 112 mts, fantastic overview
  • Very beautiful spot!
  • Apparently, a "must" on a ride with the taxi from Varadero to Havana. We were automatically loaded by the driver. The panorama is really breathtaking. There is a small bar and lots of souvenir shops and restrooms. A Cuban band entertains.
