Puente de Bacunayagua, Matanzas

(4.4/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • We stopped at the bridge on the way to Havana airport. There's a great view of the Yumuri valley and the best Pino Colladas anywhere - you are free to add as much rum as you like. It's essentially a g...  more »
  • This is only a bridge and the view from the belvedere is not terrible. This can make a stop "toilet" between Havana and Matanzas

  • En route from Varadero to Havana made a pit stop here at this bridge. There is also a restaurant and e serve cocktails in a pineapple. The latter, of course, only if you are or as a passenger bus.
