Nature lovers, grab your hiking equipment and start exploring the beauty of the island.
The German online newspaper Der Spiegel has published an article on hiking in the Caribbean and it also took Cuba into consideration. During my travels in the country I also took some smaller hiking trips myself. But I met some people, really brave ones, that actually even went further even went hiking on the El Yunque in Baracoa and of course, the Topes de Collantes region between Cienfuegos and Trinidad.
The article is in German, you can find it here.
It recommends the following hiking areas:
> Sierra del Escambray (this is the mountainous region where the first revolutionary revolts started. It was the main area where the revolutionaries lived: in the woods and the mountains.)
>Lake La Habanilla and the national park Topes de Collantes (I wrote a blog entry on it:Topes de Collantes, or: I love Cuba )
