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.

You can hike amidst Cuba’s tallest mountains in the Sierra Maestra or marvel at rocky formations known as mogotes in Viñales. What’s more, many of Cuba’s animal species are unique to the island, including rare birds and butterflies — one of the many treats of exploring islands. Cuba nature vacations are worth the time and effort, and most importantly, they afford you the opportunity to do what you can't during your 9 to 5: take a walk in the fresh air at your leisure.
