Guantánamo

Guantánamo Guantánamo Guantánamo is the easternmost province of Cuba. Its capital is also called Guantánamo. Other towns include Baracoa. The province surrounds the U.S. Navy base at Guantánamo Bay. The province is only 80 km (50 mi) away from Haiti its closest point, across the Windward Passage and close enough to see lights in Haiti on a clear night. Guantánamo also has a number of immigrants from Jamaica.

The Nipe-Sagua-Baracoa mountains (Sierra de Cristal) dominate the province, dividing both climate and landscape. The northern coast, battered by prevailing winds, is the wettest part of the country, while the south, sheltered and dry, is the hottest. The north is characterized by rainforests, while the south is arid and has many cacti.
