We did a day trip from Trinidad to Guanayara and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Cuba. Our guide was very knowledgable and pointed out many different species of birds and told us a lot about the flora and fauna of the area. We entered a cave before hiking along to El Rocio waterfall which... More

You can make your walk in this park as long or as short as you would like, but the wildlife you will see is special, and a guide will help you spot things you did not know existed.

We saw a lot on our 3 week vacation in Cuba and this was one of the best things we saw! A beautiful place. We brought our 2,5 year son and it worked perfectly. A tips is to bring a sling or carrier if you have small kids, since its quite far to walk. Great guide. Knew a lot of... More

A lot of driving in a coach from varadero, but the overnight stay at topes de collantes and a 5k hike the next morning made it worthwhile. The spectacular el rocio waterfall and a swim in a lake made it a great trip.

My boyfriend and I did the Sendero Caburní. The walk itself is not the most interesting. We saw a few lizards and a colourful caterpillar but aside from the views of the surrounding area, the path is nothing special. However, the pool with the small waterfall at the end is absolutely gorgeous. So much more beautiful than in the photos... More

This beautiful National Park has several walks, the most popular being Salto del Caburni which leads to a cool natural pool with a waterfall and small fishies. It's a very easy one, around 2 hs walking round trip or less if you are fit. I really loved the natural pool. You really don't need a guide for this one (seriously,... More

Just over 10 miles away from Trinidad city, Topes de Collantes resort sits on top of a mountain summit. The opportunities for nature amateurs are limitless: enjoy some of their very well established trails (Guanayara, El Nicho) and have lunch at a local farm where typical Cuban food reaches its peak.

We drove ourselves up the mountain in our rental car, passing an old Russian truck with a load of tourists. In the reception there is a map, but the map from the information office in town was much better, but also outdated. We decided on two tours, which both turned out much shorter than the advise on the map. The... More

A gorgeous valley. We made a walk down to the valley and to a swim (freezing, but very nice). Then made the trip back up. We wished we could take a dive again. Just go there, you will love it.
