Salto del Caburni, Trinidad

4.4
#3 of 6 in Parks in Trinidad
Venture into Cuba’s Parque Natural Topes de Collantes and visit the cascading Salto del Caburni. Start the 7 km (4.4 mi) round-trip hike by heading downhill through lush forest; you'll encounter distinctive rock outcroppings and canyon-like cliff faces before you reach the waterfall. Watch as the water cascades over rocks into a natural swimming pool at its base, which attracts hearty souls willing to brave the chilly water. Pack lots of water, as your walk back is entirely uphill. Falls are smaller during the dry season. Be advised that there is a fee for the hike.

    I really enjoyed this excursion. We got there with a colourful old Russian Army truck and then undertook an initially easy hike. Later, the hike became rather engaging descending vertically several hundred of meters down to the little pool and water fall (bring you swim wear for a very cool and needed refreshment in the natural pool). We even spotted the Tocororo bird which is the national symbol of Cuba.

    Really difficult to find. Very tired after walking mountains down and up stairs. Local people don't speak English at all.
