Cuba’s landscape is usually associated with white sands and turquois seas, and while there is an abundance of stunning beaches to satisfy any sun-worshiper’s lust, there is also an incredible landscape of breath-taking peaks, emerald valleys, tropical wetlands and cascading waters. Trekking in Cuba’s countryside is ideal for any nature-lover, with such a vast amount of stunning scenery as well as a diverse collection of flora and fauna inhabiting the area. A Cuba trek can take place in the Desembarco del Granma National Park, which possesses pristine waterfalls and fascinating sink-holes, or you can head to the Peninsula de Zapata, home to the Caribbean’s largest swamp and the primeval Cuban crocodile.

Trekking in Cuba can take you rambling through sugar and coffee plantations, wandering up winding mountain trails and diving into glittering waterfalls. While those looking for a more colourful spectacle on their Cuba trek need only look to the sky as the large populations of birds provide a vibrant display of pinks, greens, reds and blues.
