This is the best walk we had in Cuba. Colours are really beautiful and this is not so much touristic.

I stopped here like most people do, who do the horse riding tours in the valley (My tour was only CUC5 per hour and I rode for around 4 hours). There is a swimming hole in the cave, although it seemed very few people were...More

We got here on a horseback riding tour with a local guide, were given torches to walk through the cave and shown some interesting formations. At the end of the cave, there is a lake which you can swim in. Its lovely to swim in...More
