Berlin, Germany

This waterfall, close to the city of Cienfuegos, is in a protected area so be ready to pay a (cheap) entry fee. The waterfall itself is nice and refreshing, however it gets crowded quite fast: you will get there with a group, and will be assigned a tour guide that will give you some information about the surrounding forest as well. Just on the other side of the entrance to the “park” there is another small path leading to a smaller patch of water, with a waterfall there too. This one is free and you can hang there as long as you want.

Beijing, China

A beautiful waterfall outside of Cienfuegos and Trinidad, with warm blue waters to swim in. It was recommended by the owners at the casa we stayed at in Cienfuegos and with a shared collectivo it only took around two hours to get to this lovely spot. If you are a hiker and nature buff this is an excursion for you.

El Nicho is a series of spectacular natural pools and beautiful waterfalls on the Rio Hanabanilla, which can be reached on a 2 hour car ride from Cienfuegos. An easily accessible hiking trail takes to a series of natural pools where it is lovely to have a swim, although the water is very cold. The pools on the down side of the road are less crowded.

Playa de Gandia, Spain

Uno de los lugares mas visitados de Cienfuegos, donde se llega después de dos horas de coche. Es famoso por sus cascada de aguas cristalinas que hay en el río Hanabanilla, a las cuales se llega después de hacer un ruta de senderismo. Hay varias piscinas naturales donde se puede nadar o existe la opción de hacer una visita a la cueva. En el lugar hay un restaurante para poder comer algo.
