Segregated for quite a long time, the town of Baracoa sits behind the wilderness like sheet of the Cuchillas de Toa, a smaller than normal Amazon of exceptional endemism and a thousand separate shades of green that allures like a Cuban Shangri-La. Assigned an Unesco Biosphere Reserve in 1987, the 2083-sq-km range consolidates the Alejandro de Humboldt World Heritage Site and contains the biggest rainforest in Cuba. Look out for all the interesting species skipping among the foliage.
Amid the lean years of the 1990s, the Cubans were scientists by need. Anyhow as times changed, so did general society zeitgeist. As the nation confronts the twin dangers of rising numbers of tourists and climatic change, 10% of its property is currently under ecological protection.
Take off the beaten traveler trail to any of these pockets of uspoiled Cuban nature.
Isla de la Juventud
In Cuba all submerged routes lead to Punta Frances, a national marine park where the ensured coral, water clarity and dramatic caves transform snorkelers into divers and divers into sea life research experts. Ferries from the Marina Siguanea take about an hour and convey you to a lovely extend of white-sand shoreline from which the vast majority of the diving spots are at a convenient distance. The highlights are Cueva Azul and Pared de Coral Negro, where you'll see plenty of fish including tarpon, barracuda, and angelfish – alongside the odd ocean tortoise.
Trek up the Cuba's most astounding mountain - named for the turquoise tone that hues its lofty upper inclines - is a special benefit. Best explored through a trek from the Santo Domingo side, the rough, two- to three-day crushed Turquino begins from Alto del Naranjo close to La Plata and finishes at Las Cuevas on the Caribbean coast.
Península de Zapata
The Caribbean's biggest marsh is a nirvana for fishermen, tour escapees and weekend eco-warriors looking for Cuba's extremely dangerous creature, the smart Crocodylus rhombifer. The vast majority of the promontory is incorporated in Gran Parque Natural Montemar, an Unesco Biosphere Reserve from 2001. Notwithstanding being one of Cuba's biggest districts, Península de Zapata is one of its wildest and least populated areas.
Pinar del Río Province
Fruitful environmental projects were uncommon in the 1960s, which makes the accomplishments of Cuba's unique 'new model town,' Las Terrazas , all the more amazing. Come to Pinar del Río region and meet the artisans and craftsmen who live here, look at Cuba's longest surviving espresso manors, and go bird-watching in the nearer lands cladded up with green.
