Founded in 1513, Bayamo was the second of seven settlements that Governor Diego Velázquez established in Cuba. Built in the colonial style, it has public squares, majestic mansions and a very old cathedral. On October 20, 1868, ten days after the beginning of the Ten Years' War, Bayamo was proclaimed capital of the Republic in Arms. Because of these and other history-making events that took place here, Bayamo is known as "the birthplace of the Cuban nation" and has been declared a national monument.

December through April, is also the most popular time. The weather is at its coolest and driest during these months, yet it\'s still far warmer than North America and Europe.
In the spring and fall, it\'s off-seasons and this can mean fewer hotel amenities; some hotels may be closed entirely for repairs. There are, however, benefits to traveling in the off-seasons: lack of crowds and prices that tumble by up to 25%.
