Ascend Pico Turquino, Cuba's highest peak
Cuba is divided by three distinct mountain ranges. To the west, we walk through tobacco fields and rustic farmlands in Vinales, a mountainous area full of limestone karsts. On the pine covered slopes of the Sierra del Escambray we might spot hummingbirds or hear the call of the Tocororo. Travelling east we reach the Sierra Maestra, trek to Fidel’s jungle hide-out and ascend Pico Turquino. Images of Cuba’s iconic heroes are everywhere and we learn the dramatic history which enabled two young men to incite a revolution.
