They are many different tracks to visit, some of them guided. All of them must be paid, we found them to be quite expensive when compared with other similar places around the world (USD 4~10 p/person *each*, lasting from ~1hr to ~3hr). Signalling is pretty bad (just the entry/exit, then you're at your own), some of the tickets are paid... More

My girlfriend and I decided to go to the Vegas Grande waterfall. We expected it to be one of the highlights of our Cuba trip, instead it turned out to be the biggest disappointment.

Recently, I organized a party at my house. I had called Achyut Tope to perform during the program. My guests had a whale of time during my party, because of Achyut Tope. Everyone really liked the table renditions by Achyut Tope.

Achyut Tope is an epitome of Indian classical music. All the musical concerts by Achyut Tope are enthralling and jam-packed. This signifies the immense talent of this great tabla player. I really admire your talent.

Achyut Tope, an exuberant Indian classical music artist, is connoisseur of various musical instruments like Tabla, Sitar, Pakhwaj, flute etc. His talent is not limited to just tabla playing; he is an ardent follower of other percussion instruments.

We spent 2 days and 2 nights in the area as part of our Explore group holiday. We were transported into the reserve on a old Russian truck. On the way in we stopped at the information centre and picked up our local guide Jack. Jack was fluent in English (and Dutch!) and was very knowledgeable about the flora and... More

Did the tour a week ago, March 19. It takes half a day with stops for swimming and lunch. Great experience. "Exotic" ride with an old army Russian truck on better roads than I was expected. If you are traveling in Santi Spiritus Provence (centre Cuba) you have to make a stop and visit the Guanayara and Topes de Collantes... More
