Today's visit was an absolute cheek and absolute joke. The tour over difficult roads was very demanding, interesting and offered interesting views. Finally arrived one demanded payment for tourists in euros and from locals in CUP. Since we only had CUP after several weeks of travel, we were denied entry. Also a higher payment in CUP was not of interest. So an absolutely tourist and customer unfriendly behavior and absolutely not comprehensible. Because of this for us a day trip with the motto "waste of time" and a warning to all tourists who have exchanged your money in Havana in good conscience.

We came to the falls next to our tourist guide Yadira thanks to a tour we toke with Cubavibes tours and it was amazing. We were staying at La Union Hotel and the ride toke like an hour but it is fine couse the view it spectacular. I highly recommend visiting this place.

We were able to visit this area of outstanding natural beauty as part of our tour of Cuba organised by Wijin Travel. One exceptional part of this was the 14km ride up to the park in two classic cars, driven by father and son. The winding road would not really have been suitable for our minibus.
At the park a local guide/ranger led us through the forest pointing out interesting features, including a tocororo, the Cuban national bird, whose call we had clearly heard in the trees. There is great swimming in a natural pool below a small waterfall so be prepared for that. There are changing rooms and showers in the visitor centre if you need to freshen up afterwards.
Back at the visitor centre we had a good lunch and were well entertained by the barman, an award winning cocktail maker, who put on a good show by lining up six glasses and making his speciality cocktail which was enjoyed by all!

Although a long way from the hotel to the waterfalls it was worthy 100%.
It simply an mazing place and swimming in the waterfall it is unique expereince.

Total crystal waters but cold, very refreshing when you go into water.

It is an amazing place and you must go there.

Bring with swimsuits, and sport shoes.

This place is something amazing and unforgettable, but not for all people, because the way is about 1 hour through the "jungle" and mountains. But in the end you can swim in real natural pool.

Wonderful, peaceful place outside of Cienfuegos. Bring your camera to take photos of the waterfalls, but do not forget your swimming suit. You can swim at the falls, but I would recommend watershoes as the rocks are slippery and sharp.

The falls are somewhat disappointing since by world standards they are quite small however the walk up, although rather on rough terrain lets you see some interesting vegetation including Cuba's national tree, the Royal Palm, every part of which is used for some purpose.

Nice walk, a little tricky at some points but you must visit these falls if you are in the area. Just do it for the activity itself, the falls are not huge spectacular ones.

We got the tip to visit El Nicho waterfalls when driving from Cienfuego to Trinidad. Tough drive for our small Kia. Hilly with fantastic views. Some climbing to reach the falls in different steps. Perfect for a swim. Clear water and good temperature as well. A very good memory!

We went in february and was not crowdy at all. I think it deserve the time and the money. You have 2 hours on the ticket, but at the exit, nobody verify if you stayed longer (we stayed 3 hours for exemple). From Cienfueguos we paid 25 CUC with taxi + 10 CUC (per person) the entrance. We swam in all the three natural pools and we loved it! At the panoramic view we took a tour for 3 CUC to a cave where inside are mammoth-like shapes. It was totally worth it!
