What you'll do
We will meet in Cienfuegos City, in the place of your prefference. We will introduce ourselves there, and i will explain the itinerary. Minutes later, a taxi will drive us into the heart of the mountains in the middle of the country. Once there, a ship will be waiting for us, to start one of the most exciting trips you may have in Cuba—into Hanabanilla Lake. During the trip we will talk about the origins of this artificial lake, and the region in general. Also, our guide will answer all the questions that you ask. We will visit some of the most beautiful places in the area all around the lake, such as the waterfall on the Black River. The trip includes lunch in a house with a Cuban countryside family, with interesting views into their lives and traditions. With a Cuban coffee, or natural drink, you will have the opportunity to learn how our farmers survive. After lunch and the visit, it will be time to board our ship and finish the trip around the lake. And by 2:30 PM we will be back in our taxi to return to our starting point.
As a local, I have been traveling into the mountains in the middle of Cuba since I was a little boy. This means that I have an special relationship with this place. Also, as a professor of history and anthropology, and as a guide, I can talk with you about many interesting topics of Cuban life and you will discover why this place means so much for so many people.

Where you'll be
We will visit the Escambray Mountains in the south-central area of Cuba—called Guamuhaya (land of the high spirits) by the Arawak people. In the mountains there is an artificial lake, created by a dam, which is the highest lake in Cuba and a beautiful place at the same time. The area has exceptional nature and landscapes which, combined with the people, will give you a unique view of the Cuban countryside.
