What you'll do

We'll do a hiking day trip as a typical Cuban will do. We will use the local transportation system to get from Havana to one of my favorite hikes in the Sierra del Rosario Mountains, a designated Biosphere Rerserve by the UNESCO. Once we get there, we'll start by visiting a farmer's house in the area to understand how is the life in the countryside of Cuba. After, we'll hike to the top of a 1400 ft tall hill enjoying the vegetation and wildlife in the area. Along the way, I'll share with you some of the history and curiosities of the place. Once we get to the top, we'll refuel with some snacks and enjoy the beautiful landscape. After a while, will head down to the San Juan River, to enjoy its crystalline waters, small waterfall and natural pools. There, we'll have lunch and after some swimming and enjoying the place, we'll be ready to head back to Havana.

Gelin

I'm an outdoor passionate. For more than 7 years I've been actively organizing and participating on hiking trips around all the Mountains Regions of Cuba and its forests. And for 4 years, I've been leading groups to the places I found the most special and beautiful. For me, hiking is one of few ways you can truly connect with yourself and Nature. Also, I've found that the easiest way to know and befriend someone it's to hike together. So, let's be friends!
