Experiență organizată de Gelin

9 ore
Include: mâncare, băuturi, transport
Până la 4 persoane
Organizată în Engleză, Spaniolă

Ce vei face

We'll do a hiking day trip as a typical Cuban will do. We will use the local transportation system to get from Havana to one of my favorite hikes in the Sierra del Rosario Mountains, a designated Biosphere Rerserve by the UNESCO. Once we get there, we'll start by visiting a farmer's house in the area to understand how is the life in the countryside of Cuba. After, we'll hike to the top of a 1400 ft tall hill enjoying the vegetation and wildlife in the area. Along the way, I'll share with you some of the history and curiosities of the place. Once we get to the top, we'll refuel with some snacks and enjoy the beautiful landscape. After a while, will head down to the San Juan River, to enjoy its crystalline waters, small waterfall and natural pools. There, we'll have lunch and after some swimming and enjoying the place, we'll be ready to head back to Havana.
Other things to note
It will take us between 1:30-2 hours to go from Havana to our hiking destination. During the hike will cover a distance of 4.5 miles. If you like adventure, I think this is for you.

I'm an outdoor passionate. For more than 7 years I've been actively organizing and participating on hiking trips around all the Mountains Regions of Cuba and its forests. And for 4 years, I've been leading groups to the places I found the most special and beautiful. For me, hiking is one of few ways you can truly connect with yourself and Nature. Also, I've found that the easiest way to know and befriend someone it's to hike together. So, let's be friends!

What a wonderful hike! The landscape of the area of the hike, Sierra del Rosario, was so beautiful! Gelin was a very friendly guide and very knowledgeable. The trip was very well planned with well defined stops or checkpoints, snack breaks and lunch. Very thoughtful arrangement and Gelin brought with him water, snacks and lunch and a very nice gesture was that he brought a Cuban flag for some extra flavor to the photos we took on top of the hill that was the hiking destination and the place of a remote memorial of a Cuban hero. On this trip we got a glimpse of the Cuban farming life and lots of interesting knowledge about all aspects of Cuban life from Gelin. Definitely recommend every traveler to go with Gelin on this hike!

Going on this hike with Gelin was such a memorable experience. Getting to the hiking trail was also an experience- riding on public transportation through the city, and taking buses through the countryside We learned so much about Cuban history from him, and hiked challenging and beautiful terrain that we wouldn’t have found ourselves. We met very gracious farmers who kindly fed us amazing homegrown fruits. As we relaxed after our swim, we enjoyed really delicious food and snacks that Gelin brought for us. Gelin was also very warm and kind... an impressive young man. He really went above and beyond to make the trip special for us.

This was truly an 'Experience'. It wasn't just the hike that was harder than I expected (wear shoes with good traction or hiking boots if possible) but it was trip just getting to the base of the mountain and back. We really got to see an aspect of Cuba, the culture and the people, that you certainly won't see in Havana. Gelin gave a great history lesson of Cuba that really helped piece the broken history of Cuba that I had learned in the US, which wasn't much. I really felt like it was so educational in many aspects that I had not expected when I started, and really made me appreciate this beautiful country and the people even more. I had the best cup of coffee at the little farm where the kind family grinds their own home grown coffee beans, serves it with honey from their farm, and gave us fresh fruit right off the tree, best pre-hike snack ever hands down. The view was amazing once we got to the top and you definitely earn it. My wife is very much into plants and took about 1000 pix of all the different plants and wildlife we saw on our journey. Coming down is quite an adventure as well but the awesome lunch by the creek and swimming in the mountain stream was a great way to wrap up the hike. Gelin gave so much insight from a locals perspective that was invaluable in helping us to understand and learn about this unique country. We did several other excursions while Supporting the Cuban People but this one was quite special, we were exhausted at the end of the day but have a memorable experience that will last a lifetime-Thank You Gelin!!!

Our day trip with Gelin was fantastic. Gelin is an intelligent, engaged, warm, and funny host. We learned a lot about both the history of the Sierra del Rosario as well as many aspects of contemporary Cuban life. Gelin expertly managed our trip, from finding transport to the mountains, to highlighting historical aspects of the landscape that we were particularly interested in (Che and the revolution.) Throughout the experience Gelin kept us safe, informed, and amused. The lunch he brought (prepared by his grandmother) was totally delicious. Highly recommend.
