Visited here as part of a tour and were looking forward to swimming in the waterfall. Unfortunately there had been heavy rain prior to our visit and the water was more a raging torrent and orange in colour, so not very inviting. The guide was very informative and showed us the best view points and educated us about the flowers... More

We took Grand Safari offered by Thomas Cook. It wasn't quite safari - two main stops - Castro House and Guayabo Waterfall. Waterfall was beautiful and we had a swim there. Our guide dhowed us different plant species and was very knowledgeable. He also told that he can guide to the bottom of the fall and tropical forest, but unfortunately... More

We took a jeep safari to the national park, you have the option to take a guided trek to the bottom but this is not for the faint hearted as it is an hour down and two hours back up, as we had our ten year old with us we opted for the shorter tour. We were taken to 2... More

The Salto de Guayabo waterfall is located near the town of Mayari, inside a national park. You can hire a taxi (like we did) but the access road is unforgiving and a 4x4 would be far better suited. There is a 5 pesos (cuc) fee per person to visit the falls. Big plus: nothing is built anywhere around the waterfalls,... More

I have to echo what Katheryne S has said except to add that it is on a par with the Samaria Gorge, Crete for it's beauty. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful, the food provided there is good (yes, the black bean soup is wonderful) and it is accessible to those with limited mobility though not to wheelchairs.

I am addicted to waterfalls. Everywhere I go in Cuba I look for waterfalls. I have seen them in Baracoa, outside of Trinidad, near Cienfuegos, and outside of Havana. This is the best one which is why I am reviewing it. By chasing waterfalls, I have also learned that rural people in Cuba are highly knowledgeable about local ecology and... More
