- Cayo Levisa
One of the places in Cuba where life is uncomplicated and tourists store are unknown, is the beautiful but tiny island Cayo Levisa. The entire island stretches out of sand and only boats are accessible! Every day there are ferry’s from and to the island. There is only one hotel on the island so it’s very important to book your room in advance so you can enjoy this paradise!
- Topes de Collantes
If you like to dream, than maybe this time your dream will come true. This place, Topes de Collantes is among Cuba’s most beautiful nature reserve. In the area you can go hiking to Cabuni Falls, a limestone cascade that empties into a large pool. Or the Sendero la Batata hike leads you to a cave with a river where you can swim and cool down. Beyond the cave you will reach Hacienda Codina which used to be an old coffee plantation.
Vinales is part of the Unesco World Hertitage site. Its landscape is mixed with dramatic rocky outcrops and enclosed by mountains. There are still people using traditional techniques for agricultural production like tobacco. Here you can find the best rolled cigars in the country. For those who are brave enough can climb the rock. Do you like it more slowly, you can do horseback riding while enjoying the beautiful scenery.
- Península de Guanahacabibes
One of Cuba´s most isolated enclaves, is the Peninsula de Guanahacabibes. Why do you have to visit this peninsula? There are two reasons: a national park (a UNESCO Biosphere reserve) and an international-standard diving center at Maria la Gorda. It’s a little bit harder to get there than Cayo Levisa for example. There is only one way: a single pothole heavy road cut through a forest. But it’s worth it.
- El Yunque
El Yunque is a 575-metre-high mountain located 7 km west of Baracoa and the Baracoa Bay in Cuba’s Guantanamo Province. It has a table mountain shape that resembles an anvil. Its flora and fauna are generally thrilling, but especially the Coccothrinax Yunquensis, is the most impressive one.
