“It's a bridge. So what?”

Ranked #3 of 37 things to do in Matanzas

Reviewed 28 July 2014

Supposedly Cuba's tallest (112 metres), it is indeed a tall bridge, but I think anyone from Canada has probably traversed a number of them in the run of a week. Is it a true tourist "site"? Not really. There's a little bar that makes killer pina coladas, but the cost of a taxi to the place (about 30 CUCs) just isn't worth it. And, besides, your bus will drive over it on the way to the Varadero airport (if you are staying in Jibacoa).

I visited Mirador de Bacunayagua on Thursday, June 12th on our way back to Varadero from Havana. It was not very busy at all. You can get drinks and snacks and they were also playing some music. The view is spectacular but there isn't much more than that so it was a very quick visit. Definitely worth the ten minute pit stop.

The tallest bridge in Cuba (according to our tour guide). There's a little cafe nearby that offers good views and even better piña coladas. Seriously, buy one. I know they're expensive, but you owe it to yourself.

Good place to stop and view the beauty of the area. Ocean view and inland views. Wonderful piña colanda in a pineapple. Some vendors around but do not push you to buy.
