Cuba doesn’t have grand peaks or many steep and scary climbs, but hiking there will give you an opportunity to explore the footsteps of the Cuban Revolution. You’ll pass by the stunningly beautiful Sierra Maestra where Fidel Castro had been hiding. Walking through the Viñales Valley is like walking in a green heaven of agricultural lands. You’ll also get to meet many locals, mostly farmers. Adventurers who are looking for a longer trek should head to Pico Turquino, the highest point in the country, which offers superb views. There are also many nature reserves with trails that allow travelers to get an up-close look at wildlife like the endangered Cuban crane.
