It's really worth going on the hike. We did it along with the Salto Vega Grande and really enjoyed it. Only downside, for each you have to pay your 10 CUC.

It was a nice hike, and the plants, the views, the waterfall itself were just stunning. The water will always be super cold, even during the summer, so just go for it. Great Cuban adventure. The guarapo they sell midway, way too expensive (1 CUC,...More

Definitely bring water and good shoes with you, probably wear your swimsuit and pack clothing to change into and a towel. I did this hike in August and thought I was going to pass out from the heat going back up. I'm super glad I...More

I did this with a child of 9, it took us +/- 3 hours from parking to cascade and back. Good to do when it hasn't rained, otherwise the stones and paths are getting slippery. Nice to bath in the natural pool at the small...More

It's a very good experience to go to Salto del Caburni. You will reach it afeter a long walking into the fortest but it's worth it!

The 3 km trail starts downhill at Villa del Caburni, with 400 m descent to the refreshing natural pool by the waterfall. A good footpath with steps and railings to hold on to when it got steep. Coffee at the local coffee-farmer was delicious. Entrance...More

It is worth doing this. About 20k west and north of Trinidad. You walk down to the waterfall, about 1 hour, quite steep in places. Below the waterfall is a pool about 50m x 25m and very deep. Very clear water and temp about 20...More

Brilliant day out. The guide whose name escapes me was excellent, funny and smart, and bouncing around the mountains in a soviet troop truck was a blast. A lovely walk down to the waterfall was followed by a delicious swim in the limpid blue water...More

You are best waiting until you are in the country and arranging a taxi with a group of people. This is probably the best way to travel around Cuba and unfortunately we learnt this a little too late.

You can go by a truck as part of a group or just get a taxi. I suggest to get a taxi. The whole hike takes about 3 hours.
