  • The rise hired it from Santiago de Cuba with Cubatur, it is included - binding - snack and lunch to drop Guide. All 130 CUC excursion. You have to leave at 4 AM Santiago to be at 6 AM at the point of ascent. Sold the excursion without clarifying the difficulties, the ascent is very expensive since it has a very pronounced and stepped slope - with trunks - up to the Summit. Then they tell you do not arrive at 12 AM to Pico Cuba should return... so, we noticed that numerous stops made by the Guide were unnecessary and ran the risk of not reaching the Summit for that reason. It seems that few reach and those who are able are discouraged to achieve the goal. Hiking is fantastic, lush vegetation filled with orchids and tree ferns, we observed and heard countless birds and we even saw a snake. There are no animals in danger on the island. Reach the Summit, a great joy, see Martí, the largest at the top Cuban pride. Lunch to drop more than abundant and exquisite!

  • Lovely resort. You can get there via of pickup trucks because the road is full of gradients impossible by other means. tour the sierra starts with seeing coffee plantations, unusual layouts, varieties of birds and nature green ... but above all a beautiful waterfall and a stream that creates a small lake where you can take a bath. Recommended for those who love nature, also the path is not easy, for clothing sneakers shoe also okay. and don't forget the costume

  • A splendid occasion for hiking, learn about the rain forest of the Sierra Maestra and approaching the heroic epic of the guerillas in the Mov. 26 July, its members and their leaders. From the entrance to the Park, where you pay about 25 CUC per person (return will serve a snack and soda free of charge) will transport you in modern trucks with capacity for 12 people until the beginning of the path that will take you to camp La Plata. A bilingual guide accompanies you during the journey, an adventure climbing up and down the slope of the Sierra, within its rich and umbria vegetation. Very good physical condition is required to walk about 3 km fractionated in two stages, in what is sometimes one wet trail, other stony and a place where you must travel are always extra care and effort. Halfway you can rest at the House of a peasant family, where on the way back you will have some coffee and fresh fruit. Gratuities at will. Every visitor is interested, and some US thrilled, to contemplate the rustic buildings of one, however, perfectly organized camp to which a plant roof always protected aviation enemy, and listen the guide the story of some military actions and the daily live in the guerrilla movement, to which all should reach back of Mule, along the same path that you've come. The experiences inner agitated by the echoes of both sacrifice and Gore will help you to cope with the return from the camp, which is as hard as at the beginning,
