La Mensura and Alejandro Humbolt National Parks

Tourist Attractions

Those who enjoy nature and adventure tourism will find in Holguín two spaces of privilege for this activities: the national parks of La Mensura, habitat for about 300 endemic species of Cuban flora; and Alejandro Humboldt.

There is in La Mensura (995 meters above sea level) a tourism resort, Pinares de Mayarí, and several opportunities to enjoy, among them the Gran Salto del Guayabo, one of the most impressive waterfalls in the country.

The facilities for the visitors of the Alejandro Humboldt national park include two small guests centers, five camps and camping sites and ten places of interest currently under operations. Access to this park is provided from Moa, in Holguín, whose Gran Caverna (Great Cave) qualifies as one of the five natural national monuments of the archipelago.
