Jungle and Countryside of Cuba- Part 2

Sit back on a rustic porch and enjoy a slice of real rural Cuba.

Vi?ales is a small town and municipality in the north-central Pinar del R?o Province of Cuba. Vi?ales is an agricultural area, where crops of fruit, vegetables, coffee and especially tobacco are grown by traditional methods.

Caves with a river that runs through it?


Trinidad it has been one of UNESCOs World Heritage sites since 1988. Open your eyes, gaze up at the high wooden louvers of your 200-year-old colonial room, and try to convince yourself you?re in the 21st century. North of town, higgledy-piggledy cobblestone streets peter out into the Escambray Mountains, where there are many outdoors activities for the adventurous spirited travelers. The high, cool mountains of the Escambray shelter coffee bushes, tropical birds, palms, and waterfalls. You can hike the forested trails of the Topes de Collantes park with a Cuban guide amid bird singing, before cooling off in the turquoise green pool of waterfalls.


An hour horse ride from Trinidad was the plan. There was a ?hidden waterfall,? so they said.

Then we hiked onward?to the falls.
