Finding these amazing waterfalls is not easy, as the starting point is not well marked. But once we achieved that, the walk was well marked. Due to the path being steep and rugged in places and it takes at least 50 minutes to reach the...More

The walk down to the cascade is stunningly beautiful. We went there early with a taxi (50CUC return) and we were there practically alone for a good hour which was magic. I recommend taking a swimming suit as the swim in the natural pool is...More

First and the most important for those who want to experience something unique - go there early in the morning, preferably between 8:00 and 9:00 AM. You can be almost sure that you are the first one on the track. After an hour or less,...More

After a long rocky walk in extremely hot weather, we arrived at a beautiful waterfall that cascaded down into a clear fresh water pool. the water is a cool antidote for the intense heat of the day. Be prepared to pay 10 CUC each to...More

Take the Russian army truck up into the mountains and walk to the waterfall and swim in the lake, its quite a long walk but well worth it. We are nearer 70 than 60 but still beat the youngsters on the walk!!!

Long walk but well worth it. Take a lot of water with you, make sure you have confortable shoes and don't forget your camera.

We do quite a lot of walking - usually up and then down - so going down and then finishing on an 'up' was a change for us. A few things I wish I'd known before we started..... The walk is mainly through trees so...More

You get here by car in about an hour from Trinidad. The first part of the walk takes you downhill through the forest for about 45 minutes to a waterfall and a pool where you can swim. The descent is quite steep in places, so...More

Hi! My boyfriend and I are staying in Havana in March. Any advice on the best way to get to Trinidad from Havana? I am Mexican and speak Spanish fluently, so our first preference was to rent a car and drive there so we can set our own hours and make it a day trip. Are there horseback riding services that we should book this far in advanced? Hola! Mi novio y yo nos vamos a quedar en Habana en Marzo. Alguien sabe cual es la mejor manera de llegar a Trinidad desde Habana? Como yo hablo español (y aprendí a manejar en la Ciudad de México, jaja), queremos rentar un carro para ir a Trinidad nomas por un día. Hay servicios de andar en caballo que debemos reservar desde ahorita?

I don't know about buses and travel from Havana or Varadero. I traveled to Salto de Caburni from Rafael Freyre, Holguin - with friends by their car.
