Description: Jiguani Riverbanks Nature Trail
The tour begins at Jiguaní River Bridge, to which you arrive on motorcycle, by car or by bus. It is a 3,25 km tour and it lasts 5 hours approximately, with a medium degree of difficulty. The first half of the trajectory is done on foot up to the beach formed
by the river; the rest of the trip is done by boat through the river. The singular V-shaped valley of Jiguaní river, which runs on the side of the mountains, is outstanding. The tropical climate associated to the geology and to other natural factors propitiate the existence of vegetal for mations such as mangroves, shrubs, ever-green woods and pine trees

Jiguani Riverbanks Nature Trail is located in Baracoa
Baracoa, located in the easternmost part of Cuba, has become one of the top tourist attractions in Guantanamo Province. Baracoa's verdant mountains and the many rivers and streams which come rushing down to the sea here form an enticing natural setting to which historic and cultural elements contribute their own attractions.
Coconut and cacao plantations are plentiful near Baracoa, but it has some unique attractions, too. For example, there's the Parra Cross, which Christopher Columbus brought to shore here in 1492-one of the 29 he left in Spanish America.
Alejandro de Humboldt National Park (in the Cuchillas del Toa Preserve of the Biosphere); Alemanes Pass, the Yumuri River Valley, Boma and Mata Bays and the view from the natural terraces in La Maquina Municipality offer you scenery that will make your vacation truly memorable.
