Transport: we got here with a taxi arranged from our casa particular. Cost: 25 CUC. Orientation & guide: after arrival right before the camping you turn right, then follow a flat trail, cross a shallow river (a little bit more than knee deep) and then follow a trail in the forest. We were there with a guide (15 CUC each person) as were almost all the other people, however the trail seems relatively easy to navigate, so we were wondering if the guide was really necessary. He did provide interesting info about the plants so that was quite useful. Difficulty level: moderate. The first half of the hike is quite flat, then it starts climbing and close to the top it gets a bit narrow and there are a bit of stones. Nothing extraordinary though, so anyone in good shape should be able to reach the top comfortably with a few stops to catch the breath here and there. The walk back down is quite slow as you have to tread carefully. In total it tooks us almost 3 hours to climb (my companions were not the fastest ;) ) and ca. 50 mins to go down + some time at the top to appreciate the view. Most of the route is shaded which is very nice. Other info: - the trail was quite empty - we met only around 10 other people during the whole time - there are no toilets on the trail - at the top there is not much space, however there is a hut that can protect from the sun The view at the top is really nice - you can see the whole town of Baracoa and some of the coast.

We had a great hike with a terrific guide, Javier Pizarro (yamirla.gtm@informed.sld.cu) Javier was knowledgeable about the area and the history of Cuba, passionate about his country and keen to educate along the way of the hike. Javier met us the day before and briefed us well about the hike. The hike itself is reasonably steep toward the end although Javier will manage the pace with you. The view from the top is spectacular. Bring thongs/crocs/reef shoes to cross the river at the start. You will need every bit of the two liters of water you are supposed to bring. Also bring small CUC to tip the coffee farmer and the fruit guy, both of who you will no doubt meet. A well earned swim in the river awaits you at the end. Such a good day.

I am 78 years old and I have been visiting and working in Baracoa for 20 years. I have climbed the Yunque 5 times. It is exhilarating. Not too difficult. The last hour is a bit steep but otherwise, a lovely climb. You can do it in 2-4 hours. Take a guide! You can also do the waterfalls in the same day, best after a sweaty climb to the top. If you go in summer (that's almost all year round, except February) bring water, and save some for reserve. Wear good shoes and prepare for rain. Have a GREAT TIME!!!!

We were lucky to have hiked El Yunque on a dry day. I imagine that it would be quite slippery, especially on the way down. Combined the hiked with a hike to the falls on the back side of the mountain. There are 2 falls to swim in and the falls on the river is an incredible place to swim. Part of the what made this such a great experience were our guide supplied by Baracoa 4 U. All of their guides speak fluent English and Steve Matos the owner is incredibly helpful and flexible, highly recommend them.

El Yunque is beautiful. My friend and I had a guide and we had to go by raft to cross the river to walk up the mountain and then walked halfway up.. As we walked our guide pointed out and cut down fruits for us. Then we went to the waterfall for a swim and the water was so clean and fresh. It was a delight. Then the took us to a house on the way back where we bought cocoa balls from the area. All in all a great experience in a beautiful area.
