    Take yourself a day, first thing in the morning the direction towards El Nichoa. Is located in the Escambray mountains, in the middle of nowhere. But the natural ihailijalle it's a great place. The waterfall and the almost pristine nature make the object, which can take days. Selects, swimming or hiking. There are at least two places, inside and outside of the Park. This is the last of the private, the food is valid, nothing special. But, maalaiskuubalaisena, I can say that reminded a lot of my childhood. The chickens running around them, the birds are singing. etc. You should have a basic good condition, or there will not thrive. Pollut is jyrkiä, streams over the bridges are Á'la Cubalainen, plank and that's it. Swimming places are wild. The stone here, branch over there, power is in places a little bit with him consuming. Tours will be held there, I do not know the price per person. In fact, I took a big yellow Kia-taxi, 5 persons, air conditioning, driver. I paid 70 CUC. The entrance fee is 10 CUC, muistakseni. So, go out there, it's worth it. If you enjoy your time in the wild.

    I found the beautiful place. A series of waterfalls. At the end of it you will be able to swim. The walk is light and the cold water. It was very nice but nothing exceptional.

    Modest weather. Though cienfuegos and the destination of trinidad best weather prevailed on the place of departure, it was raining on-site in streams. This was not only on this day, but which is probably very common case. According to opportunities previously ask the local weather. Entering the height of 10 cuc is very, very high. In addition, that the visit time is limited. It's great to swim the water falls with the possibility of on-site
