    Javira Falls

    Beautiful hike to the falls. Horseback ride to the park entrance. Swimming in the natural rock pools below the falls and into the bat caves under and behind the falls. Drinking cerveza at the park entrance.

    Park at La Cubana

    Inspecting some huts

    This is a great place to do a day hike, if you prefer you also can do the same trip with horses.

    There are some nice spots to have a swim, feels great to plunge in that cold water under that hot Cuban sun.

    Hire also a local guide who shows you around and enjoy the nature that is everywhere around you.

    Topes de Collantes

    Topes de Collantes, Trinidad

    Topes de Collantes, is a nature reserve where it’s great to have a day hike. You can see lot's of birds, plants and trees during the hike. This hike brings you to a small waterfall with a refreshing pool. Have a swim and enjoy nature.

    It's best that you do this with a local guide. We just asked in our guesthouse if he could recommend a good guide and we got in contact a few hours later. We did two-day hikes with this guide and I must say we enjoyed them very well. Let the Cubans do what they do best: arranging things.

    Drive up and walk down to Grand Vegas waterfalls

    View over Trinidiad

    The Great Meadows (grand vegas) is gorgeous. It is lush and green with much to appreciate and if you have a guide he will take you down to the pool at the bottom of the waterfall where you can swim.
    We hired a drive with his 50s Buick who drove us up the mountain past struggling trucks carrying workers, and he waited for us to take us back down.
    This view is half way back down.
