This park is amazingly beautiful, although as pretty much everything in Cuba... It will be stupidly overpriced. The waterfall you are pretty. Worth the shot if you could include it into your tight schedule. Rent a driver... an negotiate the cost!

The islands second highest range. Lots of trees/birds. Coffee plantations - it was a lot of fun to visit and cooler than the low-lands.

Went when I was kid, I do remember the road to this place wasn't very safe but it was well worth it. People visit there to relax and really to find cure with the aguas termales.
