In easy driving distance of Trinidad, this mountain range and set of national parks is well worth a visit. The altitude makes it cooler and more comfortable than the steamier coast. We visited a coffee plantation and went for a pleasant hike to a waterfall...More

This was about the only excursion we hadn't done... so we went for it. Loved it!! A 2- day excursion started off by visiting the city of Santa Clara and having lunch, then off to Trinidad, a city that is lost in time, beautiful history....More

Beautiful trails, Vegas Grandes, Caburni, Guanayara, El Cubano, all worth seeing. I just don’t understand why they charge so much just to get access to each trail. A nice place to visit and have some drinks is La Casa de Elida right across from Casa...More

We had an amazing hike having started at the local coffee shop. Our group couldn’t make the last few hundred metres to the waterfall as it was so steep. Great shame as I hear that is the highlight. We got back to the little shelter...More

Only place we found where you can hike without a guide. The walk between the hikes are a little bit far but the rewards when doing them are worth it all. Magical waterfalls with natural swimming pools where you can drive in. Get there early...More

We wanted to do some challenging day hike in the park and we book a trip with Gaviota (just opposite Cuba Tour). It is true we were told it would be just two of us and the guide and we ended with another couple but...More

The signposting is a catastrophe, be sure to take a map along! We hiked to the Las Vegas waterfall and it was breathtaking! Not too many tourists either. The place is kept very natural (hence maybe the bad signposting). Next we hiked through the Jardin...More

We had a guided tour that included a moderate hike, swimming in the river at the base of a waterfall, and a surprisingly good lunch. The park tour is amazing and worth every dollar or CUC!!!
