Sierra Maestra, Santiago de Cuba Province

(4.2/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
Sierra Maestra is a mountain range that runs westward across the south of the old Oriente Province in southeast Cuba, rising abruptly from the coast. The Sierra Maestra itself is located mainly in Santiago de Cuba Province, a small part in Granma Province. Some view it as a series of connecting ranges (Vela, Santa Catalina, Quemado Grande, Daña Mariana), which joins with others extending to the west. The Sierra Maestra is the highest area of Cuba. It is rich in minerals, especially copper, manganese, chromium, and iron. At 1,974 m (6,476 ft), Pico Turquino is the range's highest point.

  • We stayed three nights at Heydi-en la montagne. We felt really comfortable, Heydi neighbors have declared us sugar cane and coffee cultivation, and we could ride through the River Valley. The people are very nice and warm, it has provided the feeling to belong to the family. We walked on the street the way up on the mountain and enjoyed the amazing view

  • We stayed two nights in a casa in the middle of the Sierra Maestra. One day we took a guided tour to Comandancia de la Plata which was a very interesting experience. Nature and history at the same time with a look at Fidel's old bed that icing on day two, we took a long walk along a Creek in the mountains, incredibly quiet and beautiful, lots of animals and birds as well as some small show ponds. Wonderful!
