Where you'll be

We will live adventures and pleasant experiences through the city of Trinidad, farms and forests. It will be a safe, comfortable, quiet, fun and interesting tour. We will participate in routes used by African slaves in the 17th and 18th centuries.
I want to clarify that my excursion is completely different from the other experiences of horseback riding or hiking in the area, we will visit different waterfalls, natural pools, sites and trails.

This hike with Dennis was the highlight of our stay in Trinidad. He is extremely knowledgeable about EVERYTHING and his hike is awesomely diverse. This is the closest we’ve seen to the real Cuban life since we’ve been here. Do it!! It’s stunningly beautiful here and Dennis is great company! 5 stars!

DENNIS IS THE BEST! Dennis brings a unique experience to learning and exploring Trinidad and its surrounding areas. The hike was definitely a workout with some great scenery and storytelling. The best part was obviously the waterfall! So beautiful and relaxing. Dennis is well prepared, knowledgable, and just an awesome person! I highly recommend this experience if you can make it to Trinidad.

Dennis is a great guy. He's very knowledgeable and expresses his knowledge in such a way that captures everyone's imagination and attention. His experience for us really opened my eyes to Cuba and what the people in the country are dealing with every day. It was a great privilege to be a part of the experience. Highly recommended just for Dennis. The hike was beautiful, not too hard, and the end result was amazing.

What else can I say that around 500 other guests haven't said already about Dennis and this experience?! He's great at what he does and it clearly shows. He's super knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and dedicated to making sure you have a wonderful time. Without a doubt it was one of the highlights of my 10 days in Cuba. Besides the tour Dennis was also very, very generous with his time and provide recommendations and info via whatsapp before I had even arrived in Cuba. If you're in Trinidad don't miss out on this tour. Gracias Dennis!
