    Because Cuba is not only sea. I highly recommend this park. Put your trust in a guide, because it would be a shame not to see and especially know what welcomes this fantastic forest: you will see the tocororo, bird symbol of Cuba for its colors, the flowers of mariposa with its history, taste the manzana PEAR, you will find the Poja Cuban talisman, you will see the invasion of bromeliads. The trail runs along the River, hence the name del rio melodioso Trail, it is not difficult, the last part maybe a bit steep, but doable, I was traveling with two boys of 15 and 11 years. Before the path you can take pictures from a lookout. Along the way you arrive earlier in a natural pool with a small waterfall where you can swim, the water is cold but for those unwilling to dare is there any possibility to put water down to make them clean by thousands of minnows (fantastic). In the second stage you get at high falls if I'm not mistaken 43 meters, are a show because you can walk almost below. Another stop a small cave. And finally through the coffee plantations up to the coffee house for tasting. The hike has cost a bit but is inclusive of lunch (55 cuc per head children pay equal), our he booked the casa particular and so had a private guide. The Council money well spent!

    We booked the excursion to Park Guanayara within Topes de Collantes booking with Havanatur (cost 55cuc per person). A 4 x 4 cab picked us up at casa particulares, first stop a viewpoint from which to make amazing shots of the Park. Then an hour of trekking in the wild, animals and warm. All with a very good guide that illustrated the Cuban flora, fauna, traditions etc. Half-way stop at a natural pool with cold water which, after an hour's walk in the middle of the afa Cuban, is something heavenly! Then the falls beautiful even at a time of dry season. Lunch in the middle of the Park, no big deal but acceptable. Finally a coffee farm tour with tasting and possibility to buy some. Day trip at a price not low but definitely deserved: one of the best experiences in 15 days in Cuba!!

    We had a nice trip up into the mountains to the Parque Guanayara. On the way up we stopped a few times, inter alia, a place where we had a great view down over Trinidad and sea:-) We were dropped off somewhere in the outskirts of the Park and walked down to the waterfall and on down to a Lake, where we got us a nice refreshing swim before the trip went ahead through the Park to a restaurant where we were served the leak remaining chicken:-)
