“Wonderfully tranquil and relaxing ”
This place is a lovely riverside park, with various services and activities such as swimming, guided hikes, kayaking, horseback riding, and a couple of restaurants. It's a great place to spend several hours chilling out.
“Great Relaxing Place ”
Nothing quite like sitting by the river and enjoying a cold beer and some fried plantains. Oh yes, and the Jutia likes a beer, too (that's him/her in my profile pic). Sort of like our beaver without the webbed feet and flat tail. While you can drive to the Arboleda, it is also a great place to get to by... More
“Enchanted Forrest! ”
Another jewel in Matanzas! Visited a few times and always enjoyed it! Great walking trails - really cool bar/restaurant on top of the hill (is a bit of challenging hike). Great swimming, paddle boat rental for a very scenic tour. Cold Servesa always available - and like always amazing staff and friendly visitors. A must do when in Matanzas!
“Something Different ”
After a lovely trip up Rio Canimar, it is a great place to stop for a tasty BBQ, a swim in the river (lightly mixed fresh and salt water), take a photo with the jutia (giant tree rat) and the crocodile, and enjoy the Cuban great outdoors.
“Very nice place ”
You can swim, go for a ride, book a boat or just spend a good time in one of the restaurants. Very nice and friendly people.
Cruising down the river Canimar with my wife of 46 years, in a small rental paddle boat, on a birthday afternoon under a canopy of tropical trees with just two herons for company ( one of which caught a fish and proceeded to try to swallow it in front of us ) was magic
“Spend a day at La Arboleda ”
So peaceful and tranquil. Plenty of activities to do-water vehicles, swimming, horses, eat-or simply sit and enjoy. Very green. The park like area is close to Matanzas - eco-friendly atmosphere and ambience. Don't miss-this spot is a hidden gem.
