Beautiful scenery, waterfalls, bird life - a lovely walk in the jungle. You should see the Cuban Trogon, amongst many other birds. There's a terrific natural pool for swimming, fed by a waterfall, which is idyllic. Take your camera and your swimming gear.

Really enjoyed our walk in Parque Guanayara. Some beautiful waterfalls and pools to swim in. Would be better if longer walk but well worth it. Water really refreshing in the heat!

This is a great all day trip with a beautiful hike through the mountain forest where Che and his band of gorillas hid out. There is a nice waterfall and a swimming hole so bring your trunks.

If you want an off-the-beaten path, nature tour of Cuba, a visit to Parque Guanayara is for you. Our trek began with a bouncy, breezy ride on old Russian transport trucks (our guide called these a Russian massage) to the start of a 2-mile hike...More

Visited here as part of a tour by Cubatur, booked in the Trinidad office. The park follows the valley of a river, so while it has the odd steep bit, it is not treacherous or relentlessly hilly. There are three waterfalls to visit and you...More
