Cuba is the largest of the Caribbean Islands. In a region known for its golden sand beaches and warm turquoise seas Cuba is unique in that it also offers a colourful culture, complex history, elegant crumbling architecture and an insight into a different way of living. It also has amazingly diverse landscapes that naturally lend themselves to hiking.

The jungle covered Sierra Maestra Mountains in the east of the island provided cover for the headquarters of the Cuban Revolution in the late 1950s. Today it is possible to walk along forest trails to Comandancia de la Plata to see the preserved revolutionaries’ camp, including the wooden hut where Fidel Castro lived. Nearby is the trail up to the summit of Pico Real del Turquino (1972m), the highest point of the island.  This trek through mountains and rainforest takes two days and involves sleeping in a mountain refuge, taking you truly off the beaten track.

In the hills and mountains above Trinidad lies the Topes de Collantes National Park. Here a myriad of trails cut through the tropical forest, valleys and hillsides, offering spectacular views across the area. The forest is host to many species of birds and if you are lucky you may spot a Cuban Trogon, Cuba’s national bird. En route are occasional freshwater jungle pools, providing a relaxing way to cool off.

Vinales in the west of the island is also a popular place for walking. Famous for growing much of the tobacco used for Cuba’s cigar industry, this largely agricultural area is overlooked by huge limestone outcrops (called mogotes). Due to this dramatic karst landscape, the traditional methods of agriculture used, and the area’s distinctive architecture, crafts and music, the Vinales Valley was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999.

Several of Cuba’s other towns, cities and regions are also UNESCO World Heritage Sites (including Havana, and Trinidad and the Valley of the Sugar Mills). When planning your walking holiday to Cuba it is worth allowing time to enjoy some of these classic sights.
