Best Hikes in Cuba- 5 Beautiful Hikes and Trails

Cuba is a beautiful country that always leaves its mark on travelers. So much so that a lot of people keep going back for more.

Hiking is my favorite way of coming close to nature, of breathing clean air, of feeling at peace with myself and with the world surrounding me. So, here is my short guide to hiking in Cuba.

Not far from Santiago de Cuba, La Gran Piedra is a huge rock weighing 63000 tons, on the peak of the greenest mountain range in Cuba at 1234 meters above sea level.

Hiking El Yunque is literally a rite of passage for anybody visiting Baracoa, in the Guantanamo province. It simply is a must, for locals and for tourists alike.

This actually is the name of a gorgeous system of waterfalls of the Rio Hanabanilla. However, there is a short hiking trail that offers the chance to do some excellent birdwatching.

Salto de Caburní

The trail is 5 km long, the first half of it is all downhill, until the Salto de Caburní. My tip is to wear a swimsuit and go swimming in the freezing waters before going back up as the heat is so strong.

Viñales Valley became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999 and National Park in 2001. This is a day-long hike, that goes near the mogotes, through the tobacco plantations, the caves and reaches places such as Los Aquatics.
