What Adventure Activities Are There In Cuba?


Cuba has incredible reefs near the coast. You can scuba dive near coral reefs swarming with fish, or check out rare black coral at María La Gorda. The beaches on the islands of Cayo Coco and Cayo Largo del Sur are also good places for scuba diving. Jardines de la Reina is one of the healthiest coral reefs in the world, and it grows off the coast of eastern Cuba.

While you’re near the coast, you can sign up for a boating trip, or a fishing trip. The fishing is excellent near Varadero, as well as along the beaches of Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo.

Hiking in the national parks will take you to Cuba’s highest mountain peaks and most incredible valleys. Climb to the top of Cuba’s highest mountain at Pico Turquino National Park, and go to Viñales Valley to see the impressive rock formations that make the landscape look almost surreal. Go inland to see the pine forests of Holguín and Pinares de Mayarí.

Horseback riding is one of the most interesting ways to see the beaches. You can go on horseback riding tours on the beaches of Varadero, Granma, and Guardalavaca.
