An exciting excursion will take you to El Nicho, an impressive site with waterfalls and natural pools. Perfect for enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Escambray Mountains, exclusive birds, endemic flora, hiking, caves and picnic lunch.
What to expect
It is a paradisiacal place where the green vegetation, the rivers, the waterfalls and the picturesque peasant villages combine. Lovers of ecotourism often visit the area. Thanks to rustic bridges finished with improvised railings, the visitors' ascent becomes less tortuous until they reach a viewpoint that allows them to contemplate a whole green world at their feet. Precisely in this place are the waterfalls of the El Negro stream, where the water flows from more than 30 meters and hits the rocks, forming foam whirls that give the environment a persistent fog.
During a tour where you can observe the landscape you can be in direct contact with nature, observe the flora and fauna of the place and at the same time enjoy swimming in the river at the end of the walk.
Diversity of ferns and orchids among other plants you will find in your path through the path between the gallery forest well preserved, approximately 400 meters from the forest is the entrance of the cave El Calvo where the stream El Negro is born where the main natural attractions are natural pools and waterfall.
