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.

  • passage to Trinidad, beautiful hike to do in Topes sticky with fresh natural pool on arrival. Note that the ascent can be difficult for the few trained. It takes 40 min from downhill and as much lift to the best trained.

  • After wandering for an agency Havanatur in a dispensary Cubanacan all closed (it is true that it was Sunday, but they had an opening that day there too...), it's finally at Cubatur we found our happiness for the next day: for 30 CUC, a day trip to the Park of Topes of sticky initially from Trinidad (in Soviet military truck!), with visit of a coffee factory, a farm coffee, but above all the hiking of the waterfall and natural pool of the Salto del Caburni then lunch (included). Good shoes (and good legs) required, but reward with a swim session in this basin naturel(et frais) before a time of ascent difficult but beneficial. All under the guidance of a guide very, very understandable English, and with a respect for impeccable schedules that we have not met daily in Cuba... A memorable day in our fifteen days in the island. Both the tour that his organization through Cubatur are recommended.

  • 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.
  • Nice hike to the waterfalls. It is quite expensiv though. Definitley pack your swimming gear. The water was refreshing in january.
  • Nice waterfall - worth a hike. Takes a few hours (return)
  • Really difficult to find. Very tired after walking mountains down and up stairs. Local people don't speak English at all.
  • Amazing place ! The nature and the waterfalls are beautiful ! It's well worth the walk even is you don't like to walk ;)
