Description: Speleological and archaeological Nature Trail
This place is considered as one of the most important sites for Cuban archaeology. There is a group of subterranean galleries of a great speleological value. More than 500 petroglyphs have been found in these caves. Also, aboriginal constructions of channels for water supply have been found here. It is a rich area regarding flora and fauna since we find endangered species here and others which are not present in any other place of the country. The tour is carried out on foot from the Archaeological Museum. The visitors will enjoy a vista of the Majayara area from a natural vantage point at the same museum, from which they could see the terrace systems guarding all this archaeological treasure.

Speleological and archaeological 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.
