Where Are Cuba's National Parks & Reserves?

Cuba

You can find national parks and reserves in nearly every region of Cuba.

There are national parks on the coast that give visitors access to rare sights like coral reefs and mangrove forests. Go and see the reefs of María La Gorda in western Cuba, in Guanahacabibes Peninsula National Park. Visit Ciénega de Zapata National Park in southern Cuba to see some of Cuba’s wetlands – this is also one of Cuba’s top destinations for fishing and birding.

Cuba has deep, dark pine forests with winding trails and interesting birds. Topes de Collantes Natural Park is in southern Cuba, right outside of Trinidad. In eastern Cuba you can visit Pinares de Mayarí, which is remote, serene, and filled with old pines.

In western Cuba, the Sierra de los Órganos mountain range is home to the Viñales National Park. To the east, you should visit Pico Turquino National Park to see the mountains of the Sierra Maestra.
