Not far away from Sancti Spiritus, there is this wonderful place surrounded by exuberant green vegetation, which is perfect to do all kind of activities linked to nature tourism.
I’ve been there a couple of times, when my colleagues and I organized a field trip to celebrate the results of our job at the journal (Escambray).
We always got there by bus, but we can also hire a truck in which it’s easier to climb up the road. The location is very much visited, especially by overseas tourists who don’t miss the chance to enjoy Cuba’s nature wonders.
As soon as you arrive, you feel the magic of Mother Nature. Different species of plants, flowers, and animals can be admired. Colourful butterflies, which are nearly non-existent in the cities, accompany you during the walk.
You may choose to walk up the hills up to the small waterfall, or to go farther where wild animals live. But you can also stay by the river, protected by the shadows of the trees, and enjoy the fresh humid environment.
This is just one of the many places that exist in central Cuba, which show visitor one of the many reasons why this small island is so precious.
