  • Description Areas of Natural Interest: Guanahacabibes National Park, Pinar del Rio. Cuba

    Located on the peninsula at the western end of the province, it constitutes the largest forest reserve in the country, separated from the rest of the territory by an isthmus with white sand plains and the largest lakeside area in Cuba. The original vegetation has been protected, with a fauna rich on aquatic birds, mollusks and reptiles. In a relatively small area there are over a hundred lakes and the purest silica sands deposits -99.8 % purity- the largest in the country. The pine forests are indigenous and vast,
    and the grassy plains hold the richest fauna in these ecosystems.

    Guanahacabibes is a low plain with an abundance of subterranean caves such as the Cueva de la Barca, of great bio spelunking richness, and freshwaters currents in the ocean. Citrus is grown in these sandy plains, and blond tobacco, as
    well as other crops.

    There is a surprising variety of landscapes and ecosystems: evergreen forests, including mangrove, beach coasts with swampy vegetation, high reef coasts and sandy coasts with a vegetation of sea grapes, palm trees and mastic. There is a large  profusion of orchids, earth and epiphytes, a total of 16 species, some indigenous and some recently discovered. There are also large amounts of  birds, butterflies, mollusks and insect trapping plants. This peninsula has a rich architectural patrimony of the prehispanic period and of the
    activity of pirates and corsairs,
    wrapped in an atmosphere of
    legends and histories.

  • Guanahacabibes National Park is located in Pinar del Rio
  • Because of the richness, variety and excellent preservation of its flora and fauna, Pinar del Río is called "the garden of Cuba." UNESCO has declared the Guanahacabibes Peninsula and the Rosario Mountain Range biosphere reserves, and the Viñales Valley a world cultural heritage. The land in which the world's best tobacco is grown also offers you wonderful opportunities for scuba diving, hunting, fishing or simply relaxing and tanning at the beach.,

    Since the 19th century, Havana residents have been drawn by the natural beauty of Vueltabajo, and they have flocked to Los Portales Cave, to San Diego de los Baños, to receive the benefits of its mineral-medicinal and thermal waters; and to the Viñales Valley, to gaze at its natural beauty.,

    Pinar del Río is just 174 km (108 miles) from Havana. A good highway links the two cities. The architecture in its historic center is eclectic, and its low houses in gentle colors, whose porches seem to form an endless gallery, have great charm. On the outskirts of the city, modern buildings break its horizontal lines. ,

    When visiting Pinar del Río's provincial capital, be sure to tour the Guayabita del Pinar Distillery, where the drink of the same name is still made by hand, following an age-old recipe; the Guash Palace, the Milanés Theater and the Rumayor Cabaret.,

    Quiet, comfortable hotels have been built in some of the most beautiful spots in Pinar del Río, to facilitate your enjoyment of Nature. Cayo Levisa has a delightful, sunny beach, and the province also offer excellent opportunities for scuba diving, hunting and fishing.

    Guanahacabibe
    In the western end of the province is the Reservation of the Biosphere Peninsula of Guanahacabibes, incipiently exploded with tourist purposes, in whose limits two natural reservations exist: El Veral and Corrientes Cape, and María la Gorda an International Center of Diving, , with almost 40 immersion points and an abundant colony of black coral in their funds

    “As close as you can get to Cuba before Columbus ”
    Gorgeous spot: a large, nearly pristine peninsula covered in extensive native forest and with an interesting karstic topography. Here you can easily spot some of the jewels of Cuba's birdlife: Cuban Amazon (forming conspicuous flocks during mating season), Bee Hummingbird, Cuban Emerald, Cuban Trogon, and plenty of others including many water birds. The nights teem with fluttering bats and the... More

    “Biking to the Playa Las Tombas ”
    This was the last stretch of our bike trip and it was the best! The quality of the natural environment is special and it is a lot more beautiful than all the guide books recommend. It's perfect for anyone interested in authentic unspoilt places. There are plenty of guides (unofficial) too to show you the crabs, crocodiles, birds and the... More

    “bird-watching trip in the National Park ”
    We went on a guided bird-watching trip of a couple of hours at the end of December and it was a wonderful experience. We got a really good look at bee hummingbirds, which are truly incredible and well worth the trip just by themselves: think of the ball in the Quiddich game in Harry Potter and you get an idea....

    “Amazing trip ”
    I visited the park on July 3rd, 2013, and the weather was not great for this place. Nonetheless, our guide, Abel, did everything that we could enjoy the trip. He even spotted iguanas for us (they hide at this weather), and bee colibris (again, not easy with this weather). We missed alligators, unfortunately. Also, if you go in July, and... More

    “Real Cuba at its heart ”
    When visiting Cuba please do visit its non hotel based areas such as this one- you can easily book a tour from any hotel you stay at or hire transport and make your own arrangements to get to Pinar del Rio.We booked prior to flying and so glad we did.This is truly nature lover's paradise- the open fields, the plantations,...
