When traveling between Matanzas and Havana Cities you cross this great bridge which when built around 1957 was an arquitectural marble. There is a lookout terrace as well as coffee shop above that offers great views of the Viñales Valley.

A really great place to stop and grab a drink with amazing views but like most other reviews you should be careful. It's the type of place which seems to take advantage of the location being quite isolated and it's a very 'local' type place....More

Be careful, barmen in this place steal money from tourists ! When you give him 20 CUC bills for 1 pino colada, he give you change 5 CUC instead 15 CUC, pretending you gave him 10 CUC instead of 20 CUC. Watch out !!!
