✯ Vía Blanca

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Via Blanca is a highway in northern Cuba, connecting the capital city of Havana and the city of Matanzas. A second section extends eastwards from Matanzas to the tourist town of Varadero. It is mostly a four lane highway, with some divided sections. It runs east-west for 85 km between Havana and Matanzas, crossing the town of Santa Cruz del Norte, and an additional 53 km east to Varadero, at the northern tip of Peninsula de Hicacos (the section between Matanzas and Varadero is a toll road). Most of the highway runs along the Straits of Florida shoreline. This is one of the busiest highways in Cuba, as it joins the two tourist destinations of Havana and Varadero. Construction of the highway begun in 1945; the bridge of Bacunayagua, on the Mayabeque/Matanzas province border, was completed in 1960. This is the highest bridge in Cuba.------------------------------------------------------------------------------Viajar desde La Habana a Matanzas no puede faltar la parada en el Mirador de Bacunayagua situados a lo largo de la autopista Vía Blanca exactamente el puente que marca la frontera entre las provincias de La Habana y Matanzas. Desde el Mirador se puede admirar la espectacular campiña cubana exuberante y se puede beber una gran Piña Colada con Havana Club
