Salto del Caburni, Trinidad

4.1
#1 of 8 in Nature in Sancti Spiritus Province
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.

  • The 10 CUC entry pP we found something expensive. In the Park, there is only a trail to the waterfall and back (and only downhill, back only uphill, steep). The waterfall was not so particularly spectacular. We found much better the Parque El Cubano. You can go in our opinion better swim in the natural pools, as the Salto del Caburni. Because the Parque El Cubano is significantly closer to Trinidad, to save to a possibly expensive taxi ride. We want to actually take a taxi collectivo (15 CUC pP) go. Got only a private taxi, which although again picked us up at an agreed time, but for 50 CUC, we found that too much!

  • The walk through the forest down past beautiful rock formations and through a menagerie of birds to amazing deep pools and cascades was incredible. The hike back was a bit tough, if you can't run up t...  more »
