El Nicho Waterfalls, Cienfuegos
(4.5/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Consider hiring a car and taking the beautifully scenic drive to El Nicho Waterfalls. Observe two beautiful falls, with a pool, serving as the perfect spot for a cool, refreshing dip. It's worth hiring a guide to show you the nearby caves, and help you spot and identify wildlife on the various trails that surround the falls. Consider arriving early in the day to avoid crowds and afternoon showers. After visiting the falls, pop into the onsite restaurant for a bite to eat. El Nicho Waterfalls is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Cienfuegos Edition.

  • We were disappointed by El Nicho and is not recommended for those wishing to go to Cienfuegos by renting a taxi because shipping is expensive for finally kidney extraordinary to see. In fact, hiring a taxi to go there of Cienfuegos cost 50-60 CUC CUC 10 for entry. On the site it same nothing fancy: a waterfall and natural pools where swim a multitude of tourists following the advice of guides. We believe frankly that there other beautiful experiences to live in Cuba as El Nicho.

  • A care and well signposted 2 km circular route that allows you to see different waterfalls and swim in the cold but crystal clear waters of the river. Highly recommended.
