Baracoa Industry Economy and Culture The largest coconut plantations and Cuban Cocoa production are found around the region of Baracoa. In fact, more than 80 percent of the production of these commodities produced by Cuba displays the stamp of Baracoa. Numerous agricultural and processing industries are based in the town. The Baracoa chocolate producing factory is the largest cocoa processing plant in the country. This facility, called Ruben Suarez Abella was opened on April 1, 1963 by Ernesto Che Guevara. The area is not only known for its virgin forest and colonial history, the region is also famous for its rich musical culture, cuisine and artists amongst its inhabitants. The people of Baracoa are endowed with a singular kindness, especially apparent†to visitors†of the region. A very peculiar road and viaduct, known as La Farola, meanders through the mountains with its 11 hanging bridges with the most relevant being the “Altos de Cotilla” which spans over 600 meters above sea level. This road, built in the 1960s, is considered one of the seven wonders of Cuban civil engineering which also includes the Bacunayagua Bridge in Matanzas Province. The city also has a domestic airport called Gustavo Rizo Airport catering for medium and small planes.
