Olas superiores a los cinco metros de altura, sobrepasaron el muro de contención del Malecón de Baracoa, afectaron los inmuebles aledaños y la circulación vehicular por esa arteria, en lo que se conoce como el peor siniestro de esta naturaleza en los últimos 50 años allí.

The oldest town in Cuba is celebrating its 500th birthday in a few years - and to get ready, they're revamping their sites and attractions. What's so special about Baracoa? It's the first spot Columbus saw when he came over in 1492!
