Baracoa, a National Monument of Cuba, is the oldest colonial city on the island, which is why it is known as the First City. All its charm is located at the eastern end of the island, in the province of Guantanamo.
The town was founded by the Spanish conquerors on August 15, 1511, under the name of "Our Lady of the Assumption of Baracoa".
Ambassador Pedro Pablo San Jorge Rodríguez was received at the Thai Foreign Ministry by Cherdchai Chaivaivid, General Director of International Economic Affairs.
During the meeting they discussed bilateral issues of mutual interest. The General Directorl recognized Cuba's activism and leadership during the presidency of the G77 Group.
Cuba assumed the Pro Tempore Presidency of the Group in January of this year, which was the first time that the Caribbean Island leads this negotiating bloc of developing countries.
Life in La Havana passes by surrounded by music, tradition, culture, national monuments and natural attractions of immeasurable value. Dances and Cuban “sones” spread to each one to this land’s children and to those who visit it as well; customs and traditions remain untouched and join new national and international celebrations to amaze visitors that plan a visit to La Havana, making it their Caribbean destination.
