Cuba Nature Travel

Cuba nature tours are surprisingly beautiful, because of the island nation's slow industrial development, large swaths of the country remain relatively untouched. Off the coast, you'll have the chance to experience thriving reefs and crystal-clear waters. Locations like Pinares de Mayarí are outright ecotour destinations where you can explore outdoor trails on foot or horseback. Spots such as these may be early leaders in future Cuban nature reserve efforts.

Eastern Cuba

Named after German adventurer and naturalist, Alexander von Humboldt, the National Park lies just north of the remote town of Baracoa and covers almost 70,000 hectares . Pristine pine forests in the hills make way for tropical mangroves as you approach the lagoons and bays, all home to unique species of birds, reptiles, and mammals found nowhere else in Cuba.

A trek through the humid forests of Alejandro de Humboldt National Park in search of native species of flora and fauna will usually end with a refreshing swim in the North Atlantic Ocean.
