Campismo El Yunque
The 1 star Campismo El Yunque, located in one of the easternmost areas of the Cuban geography, is ideal not only for those who enjoy direct contact with nature, but also for those interested in witnessing first hand the cultivation of coconut and cocoa, two of the most famous products of the region.

El Yunque was created on one of the slopes of the Duaba River, just where El Yunque was born, the highest elevation of the entire mountain range in Baracoa. The diversity of its flora is dominated by coconut trees and palm trees, but also by yagruma, cacao, ocuje, pine of Mayarí and majagua, among many other species. As for the fauna, woodpeckers, tocororos, lizards, butterflies, wood pigeons, wild dogs and shrimps abound in the area.
Being an area of such natural wealth, those who stay in El Yunque will have at their disposal different ecological excursions, such as horseback riding, hiking on mountain trails, climbing some famous elevations, visiting nearby rivers, camping, kayaking, observation of birds and fishing.
The camping also has basic servicesof restaurant and bar, sports areas, dance floor, entertainment program, computer room and national telephony. The rooms, on the other hand, are simple and very practical, endowed with the essentials but uncomfortable for some with more demanding tastes. They have TV, bathroom and air conditioning.
