Welcome to Boca de Yumurí
Five kilometers south of Baracoa a road branches east off La Farola and travels 28km along the coast to Boca de Yumurí at the mouth of Río Yumurí. Near the bridge over the river is the Túnel de los Alemanes (German Tunnel), an amazing natural arch of trees and foliage. Though lovely, the dark-sand beach here has become the day trip from Baracoa. Hustlers hard-sell fried-fish meals, while other people peddle colorful land snails called polymitas. They are endangered as a result of their wholesale harvesting for tourists, so refuse all offers.
