Description: Copal Nature Trail
The path is followed on foot through a dirt road around which you can see mangroves, evergreen woods, cultural plantations and lithology serving as the basis for the natural values of the surrounding settings. We go through a narrow local trail bordering a small mountain spring with very clear waters. We get to a coconut plantation and the excursionists get an explanation on the use of the coconut in Baracoa.

Copal 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.
