  • Sierra Maestra in Granma and Santiago de Cuba provinces Cuba is a good climb. You need to be prepared with water bottles, some snacks, a hat, sunscreen and bug spray. This is not something to undertake we have rainy day. The views once near the top are spectacular.

  • It was an exceptional day. We left in a jeep in the morning at our hotel, and we headed to Santiago, then direction Sierra Maestra. We had a private tour. A + 1 guide training. It is not we who drive the jeep, too dangerous for a person not used to driving in the region. We visited a botanic garden in high altitude (microclimate). We have seen plants and rare flowers growing in this place. We are have been very well received. Then we are up still more to the large stone. There are more than 340 steps to climb to get there, but it is relatively well for people our age. It comes to take his time. But if you are a disabled person, this isn't a tour for you. The large stone landscape is breathtaking. A great view of the mountains of the Sierra Maestra, villages around, the city and the port of Santiago. Then a little lower down for dinner. It was OK meal, but nothing more. Then we visited a museum on coffee. An old house where 19th century coffee was produced. Very interesting across the Board. We have also been to the Park of dinosaurs. Reproduced in life-size animals. Beautiful place to take pictures. It was a beautiful day, in the company of an excellent guide (Gerardo). Same thing for the guide in training (Lynn). They knew very well their subjects. More humor was at the rendezvous, broke almost all day. Great day. To recommend.
