El Nicho Waterfall in Cuba
Located in the Sierra del Escambray mountains not far from Cienfuegos, El Nicho waterfall is said to be Cuba's most beautiful. El Nicho is not just one waterfall, but rather it is the name given to a series of waterfalls along a mountain stream. A visit to El Nicho is possible with Cuban Adventures on a custom tour itinerary. It adds an additional 2 hours of drive time on some tortuous mountain roads between Cienfuegos and Trinidad.
El Nicho is actually a series of waterfalls and the beauty has as much to do with the colour of the water in the river pools and the surrounding forest as much as the height and scale of the falls themselves.
