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

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

A truly fantastic walk down the mountain from where we stayed to the waterfall and pool. It was a bit steep so maybe not suitable for anyone with poor knees or difficulty walking. The cost was 10CUC for entry, a fee we expect (but in...More

After a easy trekking going down, and a less easy going up for approx 3 km each way, Caburni waterfall was definitely worth to visit. But the best thing that really made it worth was swimming in the natural pool, what an amazing moment, but...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.
